The Burnley vs Arsenal live stream will see Arsenal attempt to build on their first victory of 21/22 Premier League season last weekend against Norwich. Burnley, on the other hand, are still searching for their own first win of the season; could they claim it against the Gunners?

Burnley are one of only four sides in the division yet to win a game. Sean Dyche's men are the masters of playing unattractive but effective football, but so far this season they've looked bereft of ideas or any real quality. Their sole point of the season came in a 1-1 draw against Leeds, but they badly need to get three on the board soon. Still, Dyche has decided to stick with an unchanged game for this match.

Arsenal were in a similar position without a win of their own until last week, when they finally got their season underway with a 1-0 victory over bottom-of-the-table Norwich. This fixture is another must-win for under-pressure manager Mikel Arteta, especially with a North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur to follow next weekend.  

With a lower-league cup draw against AFC Wimbledon in midweek, Arteta will have no excuse not to field the strongest possible squad against Burnley. Important players like Martin Odegaard, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka, and Nicolas Pepe are all back in the starting line-up, while Thomas Partey gets his first start of the season. Captain Granit Xhaka will miss out though — he's still suspended — and Mohamed Elneny is also absent due to injury. 

Here's how they line up:

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeill, Wood, Barnes

Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Smith Rowe, Pepe, Odegaard, Saka, Aubameyang

The Burnley vs Arsenal live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBC, Peacock or another service and watch the game.
