The Burnley vs Aston Villa live stream is a vital game for the Clarets as they seek to avoid relegation — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Burnley have been excellent since the controversial sacking of Sean Dyche last month, picking up 10 points out of 12 and climbing to 16th in the tablet. But they're not safe yet; Leeds are level with them, while Everton are just two points behind with a game in hand.
Every game is vital at this stage, then, and a match against Aston Villa certainly seems among the easier fixtures they could face. They also have Maxwel Cornet back from injury and among the substitutes.
Villa aren't 100% safe themselves, so will have plenty to play for here too. They drop Philippe Coutinho to the bench, with Danny Ings returning against his old club.
Here's how they line up:
Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Collins, Tarkowski, Taylor, McNeil, Cork, Brownhill, Lennon, Barnes, Weghorst.
Aston Villa: Martinez, Chambers, Konsa, Mings, Cash, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Digne, Ings, Buendia, Watkins.
