The Leicester City vs Burnley live stream will see Leicester look to climb the table after an uneven start to the 21/22 Premier League season. Burnley, on the other hand, are still searching for their first win of the season and will hope to pull off an unlikely upset at the King Power Stadium.

Last season, Leicester missed out on a Champions League spot by a whisker after a poor string of results at the tail end of the campaign saw them finish 5th. The Foxes have started this season with similarly patchy form. They've enjoyed victories against Wolves and Norwich, but also suffered defeats to West Ham, Manchester City and Brighton. 

They did cruise to a comfortable 0-2 victory over Championship side Millwall in a midweek Carabao Cup fixture and also earned a battling 2-2 draw against Napoli in the Europa League last week. Manager Brendan Rogers will be looking to build some momentum, and a home fixture against Burnley could be the ideal match to begin a run of results. Rogers makes one change, with Ademola Lookman coming in for James Maddison.

Burnley have endured a torrid start to the season, claiming just a single point from their opening five fixtures. The club is at least enjoying some success in the Carabao Cup, having defeated EPL opposition (Newcastle United) in the second round, and League Two side Rochdale in the third. However, that form hasn't been translated in the league quite yet. 

Sean Dyche's side are known for playing pragmatic football that may not always be easy on the eye but is generally effective, but so far this season they've just looked lethargic. Fans are desperate to see more from key players like Chris Woods and Ashley Barnes, but right now supporters would just settle for three points regardless of the performance. Dyche makes two changes here, bringing in Maxwel Cornet and Matej Vydra, with Barnes dropping to the bench.

Here's how they line up:

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Pereira, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Tielemans, Ndidi, Soumare, Lookman, Vardy, Barnes.

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Cornet, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Vydra, Wood.

The Leicester City vs Burnley 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.
