Aston Villa team news and predicted XI vs Burnley

Unai Emery’s Aston Villa come into the weekend against Burnley on the back of a huge 4-0 win over Everton last time out as the Villains look to improve on an impressive 2022-23 that saw them nearly finish in the top-six

Predicted XI

Team News

Unai Emery will be made to tackle a cadre of fitness concerns coming into Villa’s matchday three clash with Burnley at Turf Moor in the wake of their 4-0 thrashing of Everton.

The Spanish tactician will be stripped of no fewer than six players, with Emi Buendía, Leander Dendoncker, Álex Moreno, Jacob Ramsey, Tyrone Mings, and youngster Tim Iroegbunam all unfit for service due to injury.

As such, Villa fans should expect Emery to roll out the same XI seen against Everton, despite the completed loan move for Italian international Nicolò Zaniolo (who no doubt should be available on the bench), which should be good enough to bear fruit once more again on Sunday.
