A resurgent Aston Villa beat Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday, halting the home side's mini-revival under interim manager Mike Jackson.

Goals from Danny Ings, Emiliano Buendia and Ollie Watkins put Burnley 2 points above the relegation zone with Leeds United and Everton to play Arsenal, and Leicester City on Sunday.

Buendia sent Ings through on goal with a precise pass with seven minutes on the clock, and the former Burnley striker made no mistake as he slotted home past Nick Pope.

Villa doubled their lead in the 31st minute after Watkins combined with Lucas Digne, who cut the ball back across the box for Buendia to score via a slight deflection.

Burnley had won their last three league games under Jackson but were made to pay for their wastefulness in front of goal, with Wout Weghorst and Dwight McNeil guilty of missing chances in the first half.

Burnley lost their captain James Tarkowski to an injury shortly after the restart and things got worse for them when Watkins headed in Villa's third from point-blank range in the 52nd minute, after meeting John McGinn's superb cross.

Substitute Maxwel Cornet pulled a consolation goal back for Burnley in the 91st minute.

Burnley remain in 16th place on 34 points but could find themselves back in the relegation zone if Arsenal fail to beat Leeds United and Everton beat Leicester City on Sunday. The win moved Villa provisionally up to 11th place.
