England League One

Aston Villa-Burnley Preview

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith is a firm believer that his side can "do something special" this season, but only if their focus does not slip.

Villa, whose squad have endured a difficult few weeks due to a coronavirus outbreak, lost 2-0 at Manchester City last week but bounced back by defeating Newcastle United with one of their Premier League games in hand.

Ollie Watkins and Bertrand Traore netted in the win at Villa Park, and Villa's next opponents are Burnley, who followed up their dramatic win at Anfield with a 3-0 demolition of Fulham in the FA Cup.
