Aston Villa vs West Ham United live stream, Sunday 28 August, 2pm

Aston Villa and West Ham will both be looking to kick-start their seasons when they go head-to-head this weekend.

Steven Gerrard's side have already registered their first victory of the campaign, but the mood around Villa Park is not particularly positive right now. That 1-0 win against Everton (opens in new tab) was somewhat unconvincing, and Villa's performances in away defeats by Bournemouth (opens in new tab) and Crystal Palace (opens in new tab) left a lot to be desired.

The visitors to Selhurst Park actually took the lead last weekend, but Villa (opens in new tab) were outclassed for the remainder of the match. Their defence was prised open by Palace time and time again, and the home team could easily have won by a wider margin than the final 3-1 scoreline.

Gerrard had a bright start to his Villa tenure but there have been few signs of progress in recent months. The former Rangers (opens in new tab) boss was backed in the transfer market and the supporters now want to see results.

West Ham (opens in new tab) are rooted to the foot of the table after three rounds of fixtures. David Moyes' men have not going yet, suffering defeats by Manchester City (opens in new tab), Nottingham Forest (opens in new tab) and Brighton (opens in new tab). After two consecutive seasons of European qualification, the fear is that West Ham might take a step back this term.

The Hammers were victorious on Thursday, though, securing their place in the Europa Conference League group stage with a 6-0 aggregate triumph over Viborg. That could give the Londoners a lift going into Sunday's contest at Villa Park.

Gerrard will have to make do without Ludwig Augustinsson and Diego Carlos, the summer signing who is out until 2023 after tearing his Achilles.

West Ham will be unable to call upon the services of Nayef Aguerd and Craig Dawson, while Vladimir Coufal will need to be assessed after concussion. Gianluca Scamacca is pushing for his first start in the Premier League following a summer switch from Sassuolo.

Kick-off is at 2pm BST on Sunday 28 August. See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

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

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
