Birmingham: Aston Villa were left to rue the woodwork and missed chances as they were held to a goalless draw in an entertaining Premier League game at home to Burnley on Thursday (Friday AEDT).
Dean Smith’s Villa side created enough opportunities to win the match and had 27 shots but only got seven of them on target. Burnley keeper Nick Pope dealt comfortably with most.
The game was surprisingly open with Villa’s Jack Grealish and Burnley’s Dwight McNeil both able to show off their dribbling skills, but the Clarets will feel fortunate to have headed north with a point.
“It was a performance worthy of a win, we had enough chances to win three games. We were so good, 27 attempts to six shows that,” Smith said.
