Sherwood’s previous side, Tottenham did him a huge favor after they defeat Hull City last week that guaranteed Aston Villa’s survival in the league for another season.
Majority of the pundits think highly of this Villa side and it would have been a real shame to see a team fill with such promising players drop down to Championship.
Burnley on the other hand, have already been demoted back the Championship just after one season in the top flight.
They nick a point from Aston Villa in the previous game between the two clubs in November and the visitors would be hoping to go down with a bang and a win against Villains would be a better way to do so.
Although Villa’s manager has promised not to rest key players but there are chances that the former Spurs managers will rest if not many, a few of his key players to keep them fresh for their FA Cup final on May 30th.
As far as injuries are concerned, Aston Villa are still without Nathan Baker, Ciaran Clark and Kieran Richardson.
For Burnley, Steven Reid will play his last game as a professional footballer as he has already announces his retirement from the game after this season.
Burnley has a no new injury concerns and Sean Dyche has a fully fit squad to pick from. Dean Marney and Kevin Long remain the only long term absentees for the visitors.
