It was another disappointing day for many in the Aston Villa fanbase as we allowed visitors Burnley back into the game twice to secure only a point on Saturday.
The biggest disappointment really was given our control of the game on a Match Stats front, we really should’ve added a third – but we did have one ruled out by the Video Assistant Referee technology again.
Statistics website Whoscored had us edge the game on a player ratings front and reliable Meatball John McGinn took their star man award again with a score of 7.92.
Completing our best performers on the day in their eyes were Jack Grealish (7.39), Anwar El Ghazi (7.38), Fred Guilbert (7.12) and Matt Targett (7.01).
Some people continue to see good signs of things clicking with our newbies, others focus a little more in on the problems, but ultimately this year we’re simply aiming to avoid the bottom three – anything more than that is simply a bonus – for now.
