Aston Villa are looking to build on their 4-0 victory against Everton last weekend with another strong performance against Burnley, especially after their opening day shellacking at the hands of Newcastle.
Last week proved their resolve and character, though, and Unai Emery has got his side playing measured football ready to compete in Europe this season. Indeed, a 5-0 win against Hibs in mid-week during Europa Conference League qualifying highlights the influence Emery has had.
Burnley, meanwhile, had a week off last week, with Luton's Kenilworth Road not ready for Premier League football yet. Vincent Kompany's men were given the impossible task of stopping Manchester City on opening day, but the Belgian will demand his players step up at Villa Park on Sunday.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Aston Villa are without key players for this match, with Tyrone Mings and Emi Buendia set to be out for extended periods of time after recently suffering knee injuries. Jacob Ramsey, Leander Dendoncker, Phillippe Coutinho and Alex Moreno will all miss this game, too.
Anass Zaroury misses this game for Burnley after being sent off in their opening game against Manchester City, while Michael Obafemi is also unavailable after undergoing hamstring surgery.

Kick-off and channel
Aston Villa vs Burnley kick-off is at 2pm BST on Sunday 27 August in the UK. The game is not being shown live in the UK.
In the US, kick-off time is 9am ET / 6am PT. The match will be shown on NBC 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.
