Villa are camping out in Burnley territory, but Sean Dyche's side are defending in a they-shall-not-pass manner that's frustrating the hosts.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Burnley are looking uber-comfortable at times, and as it stands they won't finish the season in final place. A promising move ends when George Boyd's cross is deflected and loops up into Jed Steer's bread-basket.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Leandro Bacuna gets into a promising position on the right, but his cross is woefully mis-hit, sliding off his foot into the stands and getting a few boos from the home fans into the bargain.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Burnley claim handball against Nathan Baker, but Villa break and Fabian Delph snatches at a decent chance, skewing the ball off well wide of the goal.

Tom Heaton beats Gabby Agbonlahor to the ball, then quickly sets up a rapid break that Jed Steer gets to just ahead of a frustrated Sam Vokes.

Jed Steer has a moment to forget - the young keeper comes out of his box to volley a loose ball clear, but he shanks it way off to the left into the crowd. Luckily for him, Burnley fail to take advantage at the throw in, then Villa break and Christian Benteke fails with an attempt at a volley.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Villa are back on the front foot straight away, with Christian Benteke giving Jason Shackell the runaround on the right, before squaring the ball towards Gabby Agbonlahor - but Tom Heaton is on the money again, diving at his feet at the near post.

Final Score

"Burnley are going down but Danny Ings is probably going to be playing in the Premier League himself next year."

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Villa are having the better of things, but you wouldn't say they are in control. Burnley look threatening on the break, and they are enjoying the comfort of that early goal.

CLOSE!

Delph out-jumps Barnes, but lands on top of the Burnley forward, who looks to have hurt his knee.

YELLOW CARD

Fredrick Ulvestad marks his first Burnley start with a yellow card for hauling back Jack Grealish.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Fabian Delph needs treatment after colliding with Boyd - it's worrying stuff with the cup final less than a week away but the Villa skipper eventually trots back on, a little gingerly.

Aston Villa 0-1 Burnley

Great work from George Boyd on the right flank sees the ball arrive with Danny Ings, but the goalscorer fluffs his lines, driving his shot over on the half-volley from inside the area.
