Brentford’s push for European qualification continues with the visit of a Leicester City side battling the drop.

The Bees are enjoying a superb season under Thomas Frank, losing just once since October in the Premier League to move up to eighth place, one point outside the top six.

Leicester, meanwhile, are down in 16th and only out of the relegation zone on goal difference after a shocking run of five consecutive defeats in all competitions – four coming on league duty.

Their first meeting this season ended in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium in August, when Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall gave the Foxes a comfortable lead, only for the visitors to fight back through Ivan Toney and Joshua Dasilva strikes.

Kick-off is at 3.00pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League 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!
