Aston Villa were denied a second Premier League win of the season as Burnley twice came from behind to claim a hard-fought draw at Villa Park.

Anwar El Ghazi put the hosts ahead in the first half after John McGinn saw his effort ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee.

The Clarets then struck back in the second half through Jay Rodriguez’s header before Villa retook the lead when McGinn slammed home.

But Chris Wood restored parity just two minutes later as he nodded in to ensure the points were shared.

The hosts were the better side for much of the first half and could have gone ahead early on when Conor Hourihane saw his free-kick strike the upright.

But Burnley held firm and could have opened the scoring themselves when Dwight McNeil’s free-kick crashed against the crossbar.

The second half was a more even affair as the game’s intensity was affected by regular breaks for players to receive treatment which eventually saw seven minutes of injury time.

But Wood had the final say as his third goal in two league games saw Burnley claim their third consecutive away draw in the Premier League.

Dean Smith’s side remain 18th while the Clarets slip to 10th.
