Both sides will be wanting to get their seasons off to a strong start on Friday night, though Pep Guardiola’s side are certainly under more pressure to produce a convincing performance.
Vincent Kompany, managing against the side he spent a decade at as a player, will want to get one over on his former club, though, and will want to continue the positivity around Burnley at the moment.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Burnley will be without Michael Obafemi, who permanently signed for the Clarets in the summer following a successful loan spell. The Irish striker is currently out after undergoing surgery on his hamstring.
Manchester City, meanwhile, will likely have a full squad to select from. Kevin De Bruyne seemed a doubt last week, but the Belgian managed to play some minutes in the Community Shield against Arsenal. Nathan Ake also hasn’t featured since July 26 due to not feeling 100 per cent, but could return against Burnley.
Burnley are back in the Premier League after storming to the Championship title last term.
Manchester City are coming off the back of a loss at Wembley in the Community Shield, but are the treble winners and looking to hold onto their Premier League crown this season.
Craig Pawson will be the referee for Burnley vs Manchester City. His assistants will be Simon Bennett and Steve Meredith, with Graham Scott the fourth official. Michael Oliver is the VAR, with Stuart Burt the assistant VAR.
Burnley vs Manchester City will be played at the 21,944-capacity Turf Moor in Burnley.
Kick-off and channel
Burnley vs Manchester City kick-off is at 8pm BST on Friday 11 August in the UK. The game is on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 3pm ET / 12pm PT. The match will be shown on NBC, Universo and USA Network in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
