Aston Villa vs Burnley: The relegation-battling Clarets find themselves occupying the third and final relegation place ahead of their trip to Villa Park on Thursday (Watch live at 3 pm ET, on Peacock Premium).
As things stand, Burnley (34 points – 36 games played) sit 18th and would currently be relegated to the EFL Championship next season, but the Clarets, like 16th-place Everton (36 points), have a game in hand on 17th-place Leeds United (35 points – 37 games). Those games in hand will be played nearly simultaneously on Thursday. For Burnley, it’s a question of whether or not they have earned a seventh successful season in the Premier League. Leeds would like to stick around for season no. 3, while Everton have been in the top flight of English football since 1954.
Aston Villa (44 points – 13th place) are well clear of the relegation scrap down at the bottom of the table, hoping to make a bit more headway in an even tighter battle in the middle. Steven Gerrard’s side could to 15th in a worst-case outcome, or climb as high as 9th if they win their final two games and results elsewhere go their way.
