The Clarets are 18th going into the game, one point and one place behind Leeds, although with a significantly better goal difference than the Yorkshire club.
Everton are also in action on Thursday against Crystal Palace, with the Toffees 16th and one point ahead of Leeds, so if they win they will be safe from the drop.
Villa have little to play for at this stage of the campaign, but if they beat Burnley, Mike Jackson’s side will be in the relegation zone heading into the last day of the season and their fate will be out of their own hands.
