One of English football’s biggest rivalries resumes at Anfield on Sunday when Liverpool look to close the yawning gap separating them from Manchester United in the Premier League standings.

It has been a forgettable campaign so far for Jurgen Klopp’s men, but a home clash against their fiercest rivals could ignite their season.

Liverpool have enjoyed an upturn in league form recently, winning three and drawing one in their last four outings, most recently a 2-0 win over Wolves.

That streak catapulted the Reds into sixth place, but they remain six points outside the top four and ten points adrift of high-flying United.

The Red Devils are in superb form and head to Merseyside after knocking Barcelona out of the Europa League, winning the League Cup and knocking West Ham out of the FA Cup.

Erik ten Hag’s side are also fighting hard on the Premier League front, where they are unbeaten in four games and sit in third place. 

Kick-off is at 4.30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Team news

Thiago Alcantara, Luis Diaz, Calvin Ramsay, Joe Gomez and Arthur Melo are out for Liverpool, while Naby Keita is also sidelined.

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!
