History of the Burnley v Aston Villa fixture

Aston Villa travel to take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Villans will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Burnley was back in October 2004, over five years ago, with Burnley running out comfortable 3 - 1 winners in a League Cup match.
