Manchester United v Crystal Palace live stream, Sunday 5 December, 2pm GMT

Ralf Rangnick will take charge of his first game as Manchester United manager when Crystal Palace come to town on Sunday.

Rangnick was in the stands at Old Trafford for the 3-2 victory over Arsenal on Thursday, but he was unable to lead the team as his work permit had only been granted a few hours earlier. Michael Carrick was therefore on the touchline for the come-from-behind win, which was sealed by a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo - his 800th and 801st career goals.

There has been much speculation over exactly how a United side managed by Rangnick will line up, but we are unlikely to see too many new things this weekend. The German has only had a couple of days with his squad in training and it will take time for him to get his methods across, particularly with regards to what United do out of possession.

Palace head to Old Trafford on the back of two straight defeats. Patrick Vieira was disappointed by his team's display in a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa last weekend, but the Frenchman had few complaints after the 1-0 defeat by Leeds in the midweek round of fixtures.

The two performances were pretty similar: Palace broadly defended well in open play but struggled to create clear-cut chances against either opponent. That is something Vieira will be keen to work on going forward, although Palace could return to their counter-attacking roots for the trip to Old Trafford.

It will be interesting to see the starting XI Rangnick picks for his first match at the helm. He will have to make do without Raphael Varane, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Nemanja Matic could be available.

Palace remain without long-term absentee Nathan Ferguson, while James McArthur remains out with a hamstring injury. The same issue is keeping Joachim Andersen on the sidelines, while Joel Ward is suspended after picking up five yellow cards.

Kick-off is at 2pm GMT on Sunday 5 December. 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:
