This won’t be easy as they look to be turning things around a bit. Back to back wins and two clean sheets. But we have more than enough to come away with a result. SJM coming back in gives us additional energy and hopefully we also have Sanson signed by then, but probably too soon for this game. I suppose he could make the bench. But I’ll go for a solid 2-0 win - Ollie and Jack.

They seemed to have turned a bit of a corner, but we owe it ourselves to run in a few after the number of chances in the recent 0-0.  However, I reckon we'll just about squeeze a 1-0 win.

A really difficult one, you dont normally win two consecutive aways at the same ground.  Cold, poxy every other negative can be said about Burnley and Turf Moor.  My take on it though is if Lincoln City and Wimbledon as non league clubs can win there then so can we.

Going for a 1-1 draw lol

Live fairly close to Burnley and have friends who are STH's. But despise their '2 big strikers and let's lump it up to them approach' that Dyche has never tried to change - Think we dodged one there if he was ever considered to manage us. Despise Rodriguez after his handball goal against us. Haven't forgiven Ben Mee for his scissors tackle on Wesley that has already resulted in him missing over 12 months - Was there on NYD last year and couldn't believe the assistant referee never flagged or alerted the referee to the illegal nature of the tackle. Hoping for at least a 2-0 win, but first goal critical. Admit I think Taylor and McNeil are decent players for them.

We battered them everywhere but the scoreboard at Villa Park. We know what they will do, defend the 18 yard box with full backs tucked in. Midfield sitting on top of them. Direct ball up to Barnes and Wood and play from there. McNeil is a fine player but this is a spirited but very limited team.

Grealish running at them caused a lot of problems and that rather than crosses from our full backs will be key. Don't think Jack is quite back to his best since the covid break so that might be a worry. First goal will be crucial. Get that early on and we should have enough.

Burnley coming into form, but so are Villa. Honours even I think. Hopefully a higher scoring draw than last time, I'll go 2-2.

We played really well there last season.

Same principle as then, we score twice we win this.

The VP game was incredibly frustrating and can see a similar game given how well they're defending atm. I think I said after that game we really needed Barkley as Burnley leave plenty of space between their midfield and defence and they're not as athletic as many prem teams given someone like Westwood is in there so Barkley could be a match winner in this, think he scored a few past them playing for Chelsea.

Will go for 1-1 though.

We should have enough quality and enough fuel in the tank to win this one. But it’s Villa, so not getting too excited. I felt the same way about the Newcastle match and we didn’t have to move above a canter for that one. Hopefully my Pessimism is similarly misplaced for this one. It is difficult to get out of that mindset after so many years of dross. I think it’s just habit really to think that way. Does seem a bit to me still though that games where you first think we’ll win this, don’t often seem to pan out that way. Anyway jinxes laid- I’ll go for a 2-0 Villa win. Traore and Barkley.
