Burnley battled to a draw at Aston Villa as their Premier League fate is in their own hands heading into the final game of the season.

Ashley Barnes’ penalty kick right on half time put Burnley ahead but Emiliano Buendia equalized early in the second half. Nick Pope put in a superb display in goal for Burnley to keep Villa at bay and Wout Weghorst could have won it late on.

With the draw Burnley move out of the relegation zone on goal difference as they have 35 points, the same number of points as Leeds United and both teams have one game remaining.

That means as long as they match or better Leeds’ result on the final day they will be a Premier League team next season. Villa have 45 points.

Three things we learned from Aston Villa vs Burnley

1. Burnley battling until the end: This Burnley side will never, ever give up and they’ve shown that for so many years under Sean Dyche. In fact they’ve got even scrappier since Sean Dyche was sacked and caretaker boss Mike Jackson came in. With three wins and two draws in his seven games in charge the Clarets are hanging in there and have given themselves a chance of survival heading into the final game. If you had to bet on one Premier League team to scrap to get a point or win at home on the final day, Burnley would be right up there towards the top of the list. They can do this against Newcastle.

2. Villa’s Gerrard revolution needs new energy: He rested a few key players in Ings and Coutinho but this performance summed up that Villa need new energy and some big additions over the summer. Gerrard has said he has a very even squad and he only wants to add quality if he brings new players in. It looks like some new players out wide and at center back will be a priority for the Villa manager who has lost a little momentum after his fine start when he took charge back in November. Villa have won just two of their last 10 games.

3. VAR drama goes against Burnley: They can feel hard done by as Ashley Barnes’ effort in the second half looked to have hit the arm of Lucas Digne and they could have had a penalty kick, plus Matty Cash’s throw-in before Buendia’s goal was definitely a foul throw but somehow VAR didn’t intervene. Even the red card on Lowton late on was checked by VAR but stood and Burnley could appeal it. Burnley’s fans were incensed with the decisions and let’s see how big of an impact it has but in all fairness Barnes was lucky to escape a red card for an early elbow on Mings. Maybe these decisions canceled each other out?

Man of the Match: Nick Pope – Two great stops to deny McGinn in the first half, then a brilliant save to deny Bertrand Traore.

Pope stands tall

Villa started well as Nathan Collins had to hack clear as Burnley were under severe pressure early on but the Clarets did settle down and Dwight McNeil almost got in at the other end.

Nick Pope made a fine save to deny John McGinn’s curler from a short corner as Villa pushed to take the lead.

At the other end after a corner was cleared McNeil’s shot looked to be heading in but Villa’s Matty Cash cleared.

Pope then made another fine stop to deny McGinn as Burnley’s goalkeeper stood tall.

Burnley’s lead short-lived

Right on half time Burnley were awarded a penalty kick as Maxwel Cornet turned in the box and Buendia brought him down. Barnes slammed home the spot kick to send the away fans wild.

Just after half time Buendia made up for his mistake as he equalized. A cross from the right from McGinn was perfect for Buendia and his low volley squirmed past Pope and went in.

Villa were much better after equalizing but Burnley stood firm and then had a big shout for a penalty kick but no penalty was awarded via VAR for handball on Lucas Digne.

Late chances galore

Substitute Danny Ings almost won it for Villa late on but his low shot flew inches wide, then Pope denied Bertrand Traore brilliantly as he pushed his header away.

Burnley should have won it late on as Emiliano Martinez somehow saved at the near post, then the ball dropped to substitute Wout Weghorst but his shot was somehow blocked by Tyrone Mings.

Substitute Matt Lowton was then sent off in stoppage time for a reckless challenge but Burnley held on for a point.

So we know the stars: Bruno Fernandes, Bruno Guimaraes, Antony, Alekander Isak. But who’s going to step up if Botman or Pope can’t go for Newcastle? Will Fred and Scott McTominay be able to pull off a top performance should Sabitzer join Casemiro on the shelf? Is Harry Maguire going to deliver the goods if Varane cannot go?

Injuries, man. They cause so many questions!

West Ham vs Southampton: How to watch live, stream link, team news


West Ham and Southampton clash in a huge relegation six-pointer at London Stadium on Sunday, with the Hammers and Saints separated by just one point.


How are the Hammers in this situation? Well, they’ve won just two of their last 14 Premier League games and the pressure is mounting on David Moyes as his side sit in the relegation zone with 12 games of the season to go following their 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa last time out in the league. They have won all eight of their UEFA Conference League games as they’ve reached the quarterfinal (they play Belgian side Gent in the last eight) but their league form has suffered badly. Five of their six Premier League wins this season have come at home though, so they will be hoping the home fans get behind them early on in this one.

As for Southampton, well, they are scrapping. Interim head coach Ruben Selles saw his side fight back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 late on against Tottenham last time out and that draw felt like a win. Can Saints keep the positive momentum going? They have become better defensively but time is running out and although they are just two points from safety they have played at least one more game than all of the teams around them. They have a tough remaining schedule but have fared well against the big boys this season and they drew with West Ham in the return game back in October as this looks like a very even matchup.

Key storylines & in-form players to watch

Declan Rice is the main man for West Ham and he is doing his best to dig in and drive them forward. Other than that, Michail Antonio, Jarrod Bowen, Gianluca Scamacca and Danny Ings all need to find some form, and fast, if they’re going to drag West Ham up the table and away from this relegation battle they were never supposed to be anywhere near.

Southampton’s main man James Ward-Prowse is also dragging Saints through games and an unlikely resurgence from the fit-again Theo Walcott has played a big role in them picking up plenty of points since Selles took charge. The young duo of Romeo Lavia and Armel Bella-Kotchap continue to progress nicely in midfield and defense respectively and Saints now feel like they have a chance of getting out of the bottom three.
