Looking for a Brighton & Hove Albion vs Aston Villa live stream? We've got you covered. 

Unai Emery's side will take charge of his third game as Villa (opens in new tab) boss after two clashes with Manchester United (opens in new tab) in recent days. The first, in the Premier League, ended in a 3-1 victory which featured Villa's best performance of the campaign to date. It moved them up to 13th place in the table and eased relegation worries, even though Emery's side are still only three points above the drop zone. 

United managed to avenge that Premier League defeat by beating Villa 4-2 in the Carabao Cup on Thursday. The game came to life in the second half after a dull opening 45 minutes, but Villa were ultimately outgunned by the hosts at Old Trafford. Emery will be keen to see his new players bounce back at the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Brighton (opens in new tab) advanced to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, as they ran out 3-1 winners over Arsenal (opens in new tab) at the Emirates Stadium. The Seagulls have now found their feet under Roberto De Zerbi, having now won three matches on the bounce in all competitions.

Brighton's last Premier League encounter came against Wolves (opens in new tab), who went down 3-2 at home to De Zerbi's men. That win leaves Brighton in sixth spot in the standings heading into the weekend.

Villa will have to make do without Philippe Coutinho and Diego Carlos once again, but Emery has no fresh injury concerns to contend with. The Basque manager makes three changes from the team that beat Manchester United 3-1 last weekend. Boubacar Kamara starts for the first time since injury in September, with Danny Ings and captain John McGinn also included in the XI. Leon Bailey and Leander Dendoncker are among the substitutes, but there is no place in the squad for Ollie Watkins.

Brighton make two changes from last weekend's win at Wolves. Levi Colwill and Danny Welbeck come in for Adam Webster and Kaoru Mitoma, who are both ill. Jakub Moder is still sidelined.

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, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
