Burnley host Sheffield United in the EFL Cup later tonight in a 5:30pm kick-off as we bring you the latest live streaming details on how to watch.

It’s the only all-Premier League affair in the second round of this year’s competition; both sides performed well above pre-season expectations last season to claim top-half finishes.

Is the Burnley v Sheffield Utd match on Sky?

The match is not being shown on Sky Sports tonight but there will be live commentary and streaming through the official Carabao Cup website.

Burnley are yet to begin their new season as their scheduled match against Manchester United was postponed due to the Red Devils’ involvement in European football last month.

Sheffield United started with a disappointing 2-0 home loss to Wolves on Monday night. Two goals in the first six minutes took the game away from Chris Wilder’s side despite a decent second-half response.

Burnley are marginal 13/8 favourites to win the tie in 90 minutes, with the draw 9/4 and a Sheff Utd win 7/4.

Sean Dyche has cut a relatively unhappy figure at Turf Moor since the return of football in June, with a host of first-team players leaving on a free transfer and star defender James Tarkowski linked with a move to West Ham. Back-up goalkeeper Will Norris aside, there has been no incoming movement to satisfy him yet, either.

However, while admitting the Premier League remains his priority, Dyche has demanded his side show a winning mentality against Sheff Utd.

“I have never lost sight of the real challenge, which is to continue what we’re doing in the Premier League,” said Dyche.

“You want to start the season, whatever game it is, with a winning mentality. That’s something we’ve always tried to build here.

“We haven’t always delivered in the cup competitions but that’s sometimes the way it goes.”

Dyche will be without Ben Mee, Jack Cork and Ashley Barnes against Sheff Utd due to injury, limiting his options even further.

Wilder, meanwhile, was not too downbeat despite opening the season with a loss to Wolves, praising his side’s spirit while admitting he is on the hunt for a new striker.

“It’s a test for any player to be 2-0 down after six minutes but I’m not surprised about the attitude or character of the players,” Wilder remarked.

“We lacked a touch of quality after getting in some fabulous positions and if we showed a bit more composure and got one back, I think we’d have got something out of the game.

“We’re trying for a new striker, it’s an important position. I’m delighted with what we’ve brought in, those boys are pushing, and if we can bring that striker in then we’ll be in better shape.”

Wes Foderingham, Ethan Ampadu, Jayden Bogle, Max Lowe and Oliver Burke are the players Wilder has brought in so far this summer, with all of them likely to make their debuts against Burnley. Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster is rumoured to be the striker Sheff Utd are close to signing but no deal has been agreed yet.

In terms of strikers who should start this match, Burnley’s Chris Wood looks the main value pick to score anytime at 13/8 (bet365).

The New Zealand international is an incredibly under-rated striker who has now hit double figures five seasons running, with three of those in the Premier League with Burnley.

Sheff Utd will likely have a make-shift back-line and he has more than enough physicality and quality to punish them.
