AVL Vs BUR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Burley sit on the anvils of exiting the relegation zone.
After a sordid start to the ongoing edition of the Premier League, Burnley are slowly starting to show why they are revered as such a sturdy and plucky unit. Reminiscent of their travails last season, the club has picked up speed at the right team to overhaul the underachieving form bogging it down previously.
Pulling off arguably their biggest result of the season the last time around, the 1-0 win against Arsenal has the potential of being the catalyst of Burnley’s soiree. Not only did the side show the defensive resolve and girt which has seen it be held in such high stature but more importantly went for the sucker punch once Arsenal were reduced to 1-0 men.
The performance sees them level on points with Fulham at the moment with only goal difference bogging Burnley into the relegation zone. With only goal difference separating the two clubs, Burnley will be eager to wrench out of the bottom three when they step out for their midweek fixture come today.
AVL Vs BUR Fantasy Probable Winner
Burnley face a daunting test today but their new found resilience at the back should see them earn the one point.

Fantasy Team Picks
We begin our set of picks for today with the selection of Burnley’s Nick Pope. He’s been in the same tenacious touch as last season, a player who has once again been the focal point of his side’s backline.
Giving him company for the forthcoming showdown is CB Ben Mee, a player who has shown just how much the club missed him in the opening period of the season.
The opposition meanwhile will see us opt for the services of an entire trio of selections. Despite Burnley’s uptick in form, they continue to remain a frugal attacking unit, a side which has scored on just 6 occasions this term.
It sees us rope in Ezri Konsa Ngoyo, Tyrone Mings and Matt Targett from the club.
The club’s top contributor when it comes to attack, Jack Grealish with the 5 goals and 5 assists was always going to be an instant pick for us today. Burnley on the other hand will feature a triad, one beginning with the selection of Ashley Westwood whose corner was converted into an own goal by Aubameyang the last time around.
Josh Brownhill and Dwight McNeil will be his partners for the contest, two names who have not only done the dirty work but have beat defenders as well to involve themselves in the side’s attacks.
Top scorer with the two goals, Chris Wood completes our side from Burnley while the opposition will also see their leading scorer, striker Ollie Watkins with the six strikes be our pick for the contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Grealish’s 10 goal contributions will make him our captain while Mings is the vice-captain.
Pope, Mings, Mee, Targett, Ezri, Jack, Westwood, Brownhill, Dwight, Wood, Ollie
