IT might be just the best quality any team can have.

Don’t get me wrong, a bit of world-class finishing or the ability to turn a game in the blink of an eye never goes amiss.

But as Sean Dyche pointed out post-match, a never-say-die attitude can take you a long way in the Premier League.

This was a good watch from start to finish. Goals, needle, good play, bad play a packed Villa Park witnessing a game that had a little bit of everything.

Dean Smith was left aggrieved that his side had not come away with three points.

Having led twice you can understand that, less so his grievances about a ‘tag team’ assault on John McGinn from Burnley, the Hibs man admittedly the best player on the pitch.

After the hosts saw a goal ruled out correctly by VAR, Anwar El Ghazi opened the scoring just after the half hour with McGinn and Jack Grealish then having the Clarets on the ropes.

The visitors were ducking and diving, make no mistake about that, but that 10-minute spell saw Burnley go in one down, rather than two or three, ultimately proved decisive in the outcome of the game as they successfully rode the punches.

A Jack Cork shoulder injury saw him removed at half-time with Jay Rodriguez entering the fray on the right of a three-man attack.

Dyche’s side were a completely different proposition in the early stages of the second period, Jeff Hendrick and Ben Mee going close before Rodriguez headed in a first league goal for the Clarets in 2,758 days midway through the half.

Erik Pieters was the man to dig out the cross, the Dutchman who seemingly arrived at the club as Charlie Taylor’s understudy now having three Premier League assists to his name.

It was the least their efforts deserved with the immediate success of 4-3-3 surely giving the Clarets boss plenty to ponder ahead of Everton’s visit to Turf Moor on Saturday.

The equaliser roused Villa though and McGinn and Grealish were once again the tormenters in chief.

Having seen one chalked off the first half the former got the goal his performance deserved 11 minutes from time, popping up at the back post to volley Trezeguet’s cross through the legs of Nick Pope and in.

With 42,000 on their feet the game was surely only going one way?

Think again. After plucking a point out of nowhere with Hendrick’s goal at Brighton this was to be another game where the Clarets scrapped to get something on the road.

Less than two minutes had passed since McGinn’s goal when former Villa man Matt Lowton strode down the right and sent over a cross which Chris Wood rose to head home from close range.

It’s now three goals in two games for the Kiwi who has stepped up after partner in crime Ashley Barnes’ fine start to the campaign.

There were scares late on but on this evidence the Clarets have more than enough to enjoy a season where they mix it in the right part of the top flight.

With seven games in the book only Arsenal and Liverpool have inflicted defeat on Dyche’s side who are building some good momentum.

A solid start has seen away points picked up either side of the home win over Norwich and another one against Everton would really take the Clarets into the next international break in good spirits.
