After Grealish had scored I was screaming for the substitutions as the players were out on their feet. Why didn't we shore it up at the back? Three points thrown away for a lack of basic tactics.

Anyway, congrats to Burnley. Not a pretty team, but an effective one.

So was I. Trezeguet should have come on for Traore to shore up our right hand side . Cash tried to clear just before their second goal and Troare was still standing on the halfway line. And Traore left him on his own again for their 3rd

Should have been easy to see out the game from 2-1 when we were on top but keeping tired players on handed it to Burnley . Well done to them for keeping at it.

Agreed. Didn't watch the game but was keeping up to date and was wondering why we hadn't made any substitutions until less less 10mins to go.
Feels like 3 points lost, but well done to Burnley - solid team with a very likeable manager.

Great win for Burnely but a thumping loss for football and the Premier League.  Villa much the better side, playing some great football.  Burnley's second the luckiest goal I've seen this season and the other two straight out of the Dyche/Pulis book of tactics.  The minute Burnely are relegated the richer Premier League football will be.

Burnley are a fantastic club who have been overperforming for seasons on end. Hope they can progress with their new ownership, and keep Dyche on board. A very underappreciated manager, where I give credit to the chairman and board for holding on to in spite of some drawbacks.

2016-2017 season Liverpool went to Turf Moor and had 81% possession, 848 passes, 12 corners, 26 shots on goal and lost 2-0. Last season at Anfield Burnley drew 1-1, hit the bar late in the game, and were the only team to take a point at Anfield all season. Last week Burnley won 1-0 at Anfield. Last season Burnley beat Man Utd 2-0 at Old Trafford. Pretty football doesn't win games, goals do.

Shocking decision not to make subs until too late. A problem Smith has always had.
Cash is great going forward but a defender he isn't. Yetcagain Mings makes mistakes. He isn't international class.
We have to take chances against poor teams like Burnley. So disappointed.

Poor teams like Burnley? We finished a lot higher than you last season. You lot stayed up due to a malfunctioning hawk eye against Sheffield United. And taken 4pts of you this season, yeah but we had 50 shots...... yeah but you didn't score as Pope was in the middle of our goal. UTC

Burnley have had some great results and deseve more respect.

As for Villa, I'd still take the overall position/points (and how good we are to watch). hope fans put this in perspective. It's an unpredictable season, I'm enjoying more than previous years where most games were a forgone conclusion.

Perspective will be vital. I'm worried a few fans will get annoyed thinking 'we should be wining these kind of games'. That's a nonsense, most teams would be delighted with a point from Turf Moor.

As you say, I'm just enjoying the ride. Entertaining football, more wins than expected. That'll do me.

Credit to Burnley too. How Pope is England's number one is beyond me.

Not surprised by the tactics but to witness a team loose when they have had 2/3 of possession, double the amount of shots, double the amount of shots on targets, double the amount of corners etc it's almost unbelievable. Definitely worth buying a lottery ticket if your support Burnley and Villa and Premier League fans should check their pockets, they've been mugged.

You're right ofcourse Pope is a far better goalkeeper than Jordan Pickford, infact Henderson probably would be if he was Man Utd's number one. On a night when Everton's keeper made yet another error. Clarets fans I'm certain are well aware of how crucial the availability of Pope is, the only one who seems to think Pickford is best for England is the waistcoat Man unfortunately for three lions fans

Villa played some great football, Grealish, Barkley and Watkins were superb. Lost the match tactically, and thats due to Smith. At 2-1, we should have adopted a defensive block, Jose style. We'd won the game and Burnley would've tried to get back into the game leaving them open to the counter attack. Instead, maintained our open attacking play and paid the price. Smith needs to wise up and soon!!

Well, I didn't see that coming. At 1-2 I just felt 'Villa are at it. Hey-ho'. You just cannot write Burnley off. We've made soaking up pressure and hitting teams where it hurts our signature.

Well done Burnley, and honestly, hard luck Villa. You'll find that hard to stomach Villa fans, but you are certainly progressing at a fantastic rate. The next step may be huge one, just finding that balance.

Cheers. Hard one to stomach as you say, when the whistle went. A little while later though and I've remembered how tough it is to get anything from Turf Moor (for all clubs). It's also a far more pleasant experience watching Villa this season.

I've said before Burley are a good club with an honest squad of hard-working players and an excellent manager (who enjoys the support of his Board!).

I'm a neutral - but IMHO that is how to run a club.
So I honestly think that, when Burnley does well, football is the winner.

I agree, I support Liverpool but have great admiration for Burnley. We have also played them had all the possession but in the 2 meetings at Anfield they have kept clean sheets and taken 4 points. I think they are well set up and deserve to do well , brillant desire and in Pope , probably the best keeper in European Football. They are one of the founder members of the football league!

Good on ya Burnley. Keep on sticking it to the snobby neighbours who don't think you belong on the street.

I suggest lighting some tyres, it throwing some dog deposit over the fence, but keep doing what you're doing. Working hard, paying the bills, and leaving the bins out on time.

If it wasn't for Pope keeping Villa out in the first half, it would have been a very one sided game. But what a second half. Something for the pundits to talk about instead of 'where are Burnley's goals going to come from'. Tough one to take for Villa.

Completely stunned, Burnley have taken 4 points off villa this season, villa have had 45 shots over both games and a mixture of not taking their chances and Pope doing what Pope does has cost villa big time. Some of the play by villa in the first half was very good and not many teams will take 4 points off us this season, but big opportunity missed tonight, fair play to Burnley though.

Villa played some great football, Grealish, Barkley and Watkins were superb. Lost the match tactically, and thats due to Smith. At 2-1, we should have adopted a defensive block, Jose style. We'd won the game and Burnley would've tried to get back into the game leaving them open to the counter attack. Instead, maintained our open attacking play and paid the price. Smith needs to wise up and soon!!

Created enough chances to win three games and handed Burnley three tame goals in one half.

Midfield went missing in the second half, you have to be up for the dog fight when you play Burnley and expect the balls into the box. We did neither and paid the price.

Oddly enough, we were mocked by a Boro fan when we both won promotion to the PL a few years back. They signed some Spanish legend who turned out to be past it and gloated about it, and we signed Pope from Charlton who had just been relegated to League One.

We stayed up. They went down and Pope is probably the best of the English keepers at the moment.
