How to watch Aston Villa vs Burnley in the Premier League: The relegation battle rages on as Burnley look to stay up. Can Burnley avoid the drop? Here’s how to watch Villa vs Burnley in the UK.
A few weeks ago, Burnley looked dead and buried in the battle for Premier League survival. Then the club fired longtime boss Sean Dyche, much to the bemusement of the football watching public.
However, Dyche’s temporary replacement Mike Jackson has revived the North West club’s hopes of remaining in the Premier League. A few recent wins have left Burnley just a point back from fellow strugglers Leeds United, with two games left to play.
Leeds only have one game left, so a win for the Turf Moor outfit tonight would be a giant step towards securing their Premier League future, especially with Leeds in free-fall and struggling to put points on the board. Given the goal difference scenario, four points from the last two games would guarantee another season of Premier League football for Burnley.
Standing in the way is an Aston Villa side seeking to end the season on a high, following mixed results under the management of Steven Gerrard. While the external narrative remains fixed on whether the former Anfield ace can help his former club towards the title, this weekend, that definitely won’t be the focus at Villa Park tonight.
Many Villa players are looking to secure their future with the club, so there’s plenty to play for in the last two games for Gerrard’s squad.
Can Burnley take a giant leap towards safety this evening? Or can Villa give hope to Leeds United heading into the massive season finale on Sunday, which also could also see Everton dragged back into the mire if they drop points against Crystal Palace tonight. Here’s how to watch Aston Villa vs Burnley on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
