Aston Villa need to make the most of their fixtures across the Christmas period starting with a game against Burnley in the Premier League on Amazon Prime Video.

Villa appear to be an all-or-nothing side so far having won six and lost four of their opening 10 Premier League fixtures.

They have a relatively favourable run of fixtures against bottom-half sides going into the festive spell and boss Dean Smith will hope his squad can capitalise before a tough set of 2021 encounters.

Saying that, Burnley are no slouches, and proved as much with a determined 1-0 win over beleaguered Arsenal on Sunday.

Sean Dyche’s men haven’t scored more than one goal in a game since September but they remain a tough nut to crack.

Aston Villa v Burnley team news

Aston Villa: The list of absentees has grown for Villa. Douglas Luiz and impressive full-back Matty Cash are both suspended for this one.

Ross Barkley, Keinan Davis and Trezeguet remain sidelined alongside long-term absentees Wesley, Tom Heaton and Bjorn Engels, meaning Smith has plenty of tinkering to do.

Burnley: Jack Cork remains the only long-term issue, but Phil Bardsley, Dale Stephens and Johann Gudmundsson remain doubtful to feature.

Former Villa aces Ashley Westwood and Matt Lowton are expected to start against their old club.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Burnley

Burnley may be one of the most predictable teams in the Premier League. You know how they’re going to line up, you know how they’re going to set up, you know they’re going to endure a painful start to the season then gradually rise through the table to secure a cosy finish.

Dyche has mastered the tough art of keeping Burnley afloat, but simply doesn’t have the resources to drastically improve his team.

And that makes them perennial targets for the likes of Villa to come along and flex the quality in their squad. Jack Grealish is the obvious one to watch, but John McGinn and Ollie Watkins have come together to form a potent XI with goals throughout the side.
