Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool: Start time, how to watch or stream in the US, UK and Australia

Spurs and Liverpool are about to face off. Here's how to watch...

Listen
- 02:20

The English Premier League has been a bizarre roller coaster this season. 

In the beginning, Liverpool looked unstoppable, and Tottenham Hotspur, managed by a resurgent Jose Mourinho, was hot on its tail. Months later, Liverpool has sunk to fourth position and hasn't scored in its last four EPL games. Spurs have also struggled to find consistency and currently sit in fifth position. 

But this is the tightest Premier League race we've seen in years, and everything seems to change week to week. Case in point: bottom of the table team Sheffield United just beat Man United. On that note, the upcoming match between Spurs and Liverpool is incredibly important. If Spurs win, they'll replace Liverpool in the fourth spot, but Jurgen Klopp's men will be doing everything in their power to head back to winning ways.

How to watch the Premier League in the US

The good news: It's relatively easy to watch the Premier League in the US, and you have heaps of options to choose from. We've got an entire post dedicated to watching soccer in the US, but here are the CliffsNotes.

Premier League games are shown on NBC, NBCSN or USA Network. If you have good reception, you can watch Premier League games on NBC for free. Just attach an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV and you should be good to go.

You can also stream the matches on NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app. All of the major live TV streaming services include NBC, NBCSN and USA Network, and you can use a live TV streaming subscription to log in to NBC Sports livestreams online.

Here are some other options.

Peacock offers three tiers: a limited free plan and two Premium plans. The ad-supported Premium plan costs $5 a month, and the ad-free Premium plan costs $10 a month. You need one of the Premium plans to watch Premier League games live and full-game replays, though highlights are available on the free tier. Read our Peacock review.

How to watch the Premier League in Australia 

This is fairly straightforward -- sign up for Optus Sport.

For someone living in Australia, Optus Sport grabbing the rights to the Premier League has been a godsend. No longer do soccer fans have to sign up for an overpriced Foxtel subscription, packed with channels you have no interest in. Now you just pay a monthly fee and have access to practically every Premier League match. You also get Champions League matches as well.

It's essentially Netflix for soccer, and it's awesome. It starts at AU$15 per month.

How to watch the Premier League in the UK

This one's a little more complex. Considering how lucrative the Premier League is in the UK, the TV rights have been split between BT Sport and Sky Sports
