Burnley and Aston Villa clash on Sunday afternoon, with Vincent Kompany’s side being installed as the outsiders to claim three points. The Premier League new boys are predicted to finish outside the relegation zone come the end of the season, although this could be a tough assignment against opponents who could be capable of a top six finish this season.

It’s hard to get too much of a read on Burnley after just one game. They created a few half-chances against City and we shouldn’t forget that this team ran away with the Championship title last term. Getting 101 points was no mean feat, with Kompany creating a successful side instantaneously and they’re a big price to land the spoils.

However, it’s easy to see why the Villans are favourites. After being comprehensively beaten 5-1 by Newcastle United in their opening clash, Unai Emery’s have had a brilliant week, starting with a 4-0 demolition of Everton. Then came a 5-0 win over Hibernian in the Europa Conference League and we might see the visitors being a warm order here.

According to the latest betting odds, we’re likely to see both teams find the net in this clash and that is reflected in the prices. You could even consider an Aston Villa win and both teams to find the net considering that Emery’s side did concede five in their opener and might not be watertight considering that Tyrone Mings is out injured.
