Manchester United v Burnley, Sky Sports, Sunday 18 April, 4.00pm BST

Fresh from securing a place in the Europa League semi-finals, Manchester United look to continue their impressive recent form with the visit of Burnley to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side defeated Spaniards Granada 2-0 on Thursday for a 4-0 aggregate victory, setting up a last four clash with Roma.  

But their attention now turns back to domestic matters, as the Red Devils target a fifth consecutive league win that would strengthen their grip on second place.

It is likely too late for United to think about catching their rivals Manchester City in first place, as Solskjaer’s team are 11 points behind with a game in hand.

But a 3-1 win at Tottenham last weekend stretched their unbeaten league run to 11 matches, making them big favourites against struggling Burnley.

Sean Dyche’s side have lost back-to-back games against Southampton and Newcastle and sit in 16th place, seven points above the relegation zone.

United won 1-0 at Turf Moor thanks to a Paul Pogba strike in the first meeting of the season between the sides.

Marcus Rashford is struggling with a foot injury and Eric Bailly could miss out after recently testing positive for the coronavirus, while Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are out injured.

Ashley Barnes is a doubt for Burnley, while Robbie Brady and Kevin Long are long-term absences for the Clarets.

Kick-off is at 4.00pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Manchester United v Burnley live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more.
