The Clarets have lost back to back league games, which has made it five defeats in their last seven played. They have lost three of their last five at Turf Moor after going down 2-0 there against Manchester United on the weekend. The overall home record of Burnley this season in the league is W5 L5. All five of their wins have happened with a clean sheet and have been against sides who start the new year outside of the top nine. That should leave them in good stead to face Villa.

Aston Villa News and Form – Can Villa earn anything at Turf Moor?

After picking up a crucial three points at home against Norwich on Boxing Day, things fell apart for Aston Villa on the weekend. They made the trip to Watford in what was another big relegation battle. Villa came off second best in a 3-0 loss against the ten-men of the Hornets. That was Villa’s fifth loss in their last six games played and they are sinking fast. There are clear defensive issues there which don’t appear as if they are going to get fixed anytime soon. They have conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven.

The away record of the Villains is W1 D1 L8. Punters won’t have an easy time trusting them at all. In total Aston Villa have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per away game and 80% of their road fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. Dean Smith’s men have lost their last three away from home, taking just one point from their last six. There has been no clean sheet from them on their travels. They have also conceded at least two goals in each of their last six Premier League away games. Villa have the worst away record of the campaign and only two sides have shipped more goals this season than they have done.
