Liverpool vs. Man United Livestream: How to Watch Premier League Soccer From Anywhere

Jurgen Klopp's men host ancient rivals Man Utd at Anfield on Sunday, needing a victory to keep alive their hopes of a top-four finish.

The two most successful clubs in English football history renew their rivalry at Anfield on Sunday, for the 180th league meeting between the two giants.

It's been a season to forget so far for the hosts, but Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool side nevertheless come into this clash unbeaten in their last six league games against United, and will be desperate to extend that record as they look to continue their push for Champions League qualification.

There's an added incentive for Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah to get on the score sheet on Sunday, with the Egyptian star needing just one more goal to equal Robbie Fowler's club record tally of 128 goals for the Reds.

Now 11 matches without defeat, following an FA Cup win over West Ham in midweek, United boss Erik ten Hag will be looking for his side to complete a home-and-away league double over Liverpool, following his side's 2-1 win in the reverse fixture back in August.

No side has accumulated more points in the EPL than United since the return to action after the World Cup break, and a win here against their greatest adversaries would further strengthen their claims to be considered as an outside bet for the title. 

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

How to watch the Liverpool vs. Man United 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. 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.
