Aston Villa Recent form

Unai Emery appeared visibly frustrated in his interview after the match at Old Trafford. His team, Aston Villa, suffered a collapse in the first half due to poor defending, resulting in goals by John McGinn and Leander Dendoncker. However, an unexpected comeback in the second half led by Alejandro Garnacho allowed Manchester United to level the score. In the end, a late corner saw Rasmus Hojlund score his first Premier League goal, securing a victory for Manchester United and ending Villa’s 10-game unbeaten streak. This loss prevents Villa from surpassing Arsenal in the league standings.

If Arsenal win their upcoming match against West Ham United, Emery’s team could fall four points behind his former club. Villa will seek redemption at home against Sheffield United, who ended their 15-game winning streak earlier this season. Additionally, Villa must put an end to their poor record of not winning their final home game of the year, as they have gone winless in the past nine such matches since their 3-0 victory against Fulham 20 years ago.

Burnley Recent form

While Aston Villa has consistently performed well at home this season, Burnley continues to struggle at Turf Moor. This was evident in their recent 2-0 loss to Liverpool, where goals from Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota sealed their defeat. However, during the match, Burnley did show moments of promise as they defended against Liverpool’s numerous chances. Despite this, Burnley’s position in the league remains precarious, and they are unlikely to escape the relegation zone before the year’s end. Their upcoming match against Sheffield United could even see them end the year at the bottom of the table. Nevertheless, recent victories against Fulham and Brighton on the road provide a glimmer of hope for Burnley. They have also managed to avoid defeat in their last four visits to Aston Villa’s home ground, but Villa did emerge as 3-1 winners in their previous encounter at Turf Moor eight months ago.

ChatGPT’s prediction 

“Considering Aston Villa’s historical dominance at home and their scoring form, they might have an edge against Burnley, despite Burnley’s recent defensive improvement away. Aston Villa’s goal-scoring streak at home and their overall record against Burnley, along with their strong historical home performances, suggests a potential victory for Aston Villa in this fixture.”


Bards’s prediction 

“Aston Villa, despite their recent draw and historical Boxing Day struggles at home, edge out Burnley thanks to their strong home scoring streak, Emery’s perfect record against them, and Watkins’ scoring form, while Burnley’s winless away run and lack of comeback points remain hurdles.”

Our Experts Predict Winner of Aston Villa vs Burnley

Villa has not defeated Burnley at Villa Park since 2010, but with some recent errors to correct, Emery’s Lions team should be supported to break that losing streak on Saturday afternoon. The last time Villa won both matches against Burnley in the top division was during the 1925-26 season when they dominated their opponents with a 10-0 victory at home. While such a significant win is unlikely this time, a revamped starting lineup should still easily handle Kompany’s team.
