Aston Villa are aiming for a third consecutive Premier League win when they host Leicester City on Saturday.

Unai Emery has led his team to a good run, climbing into 11th place following three wins and a draw in the last four outings – albeit they did slip up badly in the FA Cup by losing to Stevenage.

Leicester are on a dreadful run, losing four straight league games before a 2-2 draw with Brighton last time out stopped the rot.

The Foxes progressed in the FA Cup with a narrow 1-0 win over Walsall last weekend, but need league points to steer clear of the drop zone, which they are currently only one point above.

Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

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.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
