Arsenal come into the final game of the season against Everton at home with their hopes of winning the title for the first time in 20 years very much in the balance.

With Manchester City two points ahead at the top of the table coming into the season's concluding fixtures, the Gunners need to beat the Toffees today and hope that West Ham can cause a shock and take points off City to stand any chance of becoming champions.

They face an Everton side that are likely to make the Gunners work hard for the points they so desperately need. The Toffees have climbed their way clear of relegation despite points deductions for breaching financial rules, with their 17 points claimed since the start of April only bettered by Manchester City, Chelsea and their opponents today. 

Below, we'll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

Arsenal vs. Everton: When and where?

Arsenal host Everton at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, May 19. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. BST local time, which is 11 a.m. ET or 8 a.m. PT in the US and Canada, and 1 a.m. AEST on Monday, May 20, in Australia

How to watch the Arsenal vs. Everton game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game, that's where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it's also a great idea if you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins. 

With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this. 

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you're streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the Premier League using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play -- your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN -- your experience and success when streaming EPL matches may vary.
  • If you don't see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the "search for city or country" option.
  • If you're having trouble getting the game after you've turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs -- like Roku -- don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you're using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network's sports app, you'll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you're using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
