27 shots not enough for Villa as Burnley hold out for stalemate


Burnley have moved out of the bottom three in the Premier League after coming away from Aston Villa with a 0-0 draw on Friday (AEDT).

Villa had the bulk of possession and had 27 shots but Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope made a handful of good saves to keep a clean sheet and earn a point.

The result lifted Burnley above Fulham and out of the relegation zone to 17th while Villa are 11th.

Later Thursday, Manchester United could go as high as fifth if they win at bottom side Sheffield United.
