Burnley vs Manchester United live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV

Manchester United take on Burnley in the Premier League tonight as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team look to secure top spot in the standings.

United come into the match in second spot in the top flight, level on 33 points with rivals Liverpool but behind on goal difference. If the visitors can make it three straight wins in the Premier League by overcoming Sean Dyche’s side, they will go top as the midway point of the term edges ever closer.

United earned a 2-1 win against Aston Villa in their last game in the division, having seen off Wolves 1-0 before that. The Red Devils then fell to a 2-0 Carabao Cup semi-final loss to rivals Man City but bounced back by eliminating Watford from the FA Cup in last weekend’s third-round meeting.

Burnley, meanwhile, are in decent form, having won three, drawn two and lost one in their last six Premier League fixtures. That run has seen them climb to 16th in the table, five points above the relegation zone, and – following their FA Cup win against MK Dons on penalties at the weekend – the Clarets will be keen to take advantage of that momentum when they host United.

How can I watch it?

The fixture will air live on Sky Sports Football, and subscribers can also stream it live on the Sky Sports website and SkyGo app. 

What is the team news? 

Burnley are waiting on confirmation as to whether goalkeeper Nick Pope will recover from an ankle injury in time to feature. Dwight McNeil is also in a race against time to return from a groin issue, while Jay Rodriguez, Kevin Long and Charlie Taylor are not expected to be involved. 

Paul Pogba, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw missed United’s FA Cup win at the weekend through injury – as opposed to having been rested – but could return here. Eric Bailly is a doubt due to the neck injury he suffered in a collision with Dean Henderson against Watford, and Phil Jones and Facundo Pellistri are still out. Edinson Cavani has served his three-game ban and may well start.

Predicted line-ups

Burnley: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Brady; Barnes, Wood

United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial


Burnley: 13/2

Draw: 15/4

United: 2/5


Burnley are in good enough form to test United here, but the chance to go clear at the top should light a fire under a United team who have a fair bit of momentum at the moment – in spite of their Carabao Cup semi-final defeat. Burnley 0-1 United.
