Burnley – Aston Villa: It’s claret v claret when Aston Villa heads to Turf Moor in a bid to keep its top four push alive at Burnley (start time 1pm ET online via Peacock Premium).
Villa is ninth on the table with two or three games-in-hand on the top four, six points behind fourth-place West Ham. Dean Smith’s men rebounded from a four-match winless run to beat Newcastle 2-0 in their last outing.
Burnley is coming off a huge defeat of Liverpool, creating six points distance from the bottom three. Winning at Villa will be tough but as Sean Dyche said after upending the Reds at Anfield, “We’re allowed to actually try and win.”

Never bet against Burnley. The plucky Clarets will make life difficult for Jack Grealish and Co. But does Villa have too much to handle, even away from home? Burnley 1-1 Villa.
