Manchester United v West Ham United live stream, Saturday 22 January, 3pm GMT

Manchester United will be looking to build on their victory over Brentford on Wednesday when West Ham visit Old Trafford this weekend.

The Hammers won at this ground in the League Cup earlier this season, but plenty has changed since that tie in September. For starters, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is no longer in the hot seat at Old Trafford. 

Ralf Rangnick has been in charge for almost two months now, but it is fair to say he is still getting to grips with the job. United have been inconsistent both within and between matches during the German's tenure, and finishing in the top four will be a tall order despite the fact United are just two points adrift of the final Champions League qualification spot.

United beat Brentford 3-1 in midweek, but their performance left a lot to be desired. Still, there are signs that the Red Devils are starting to move in the right direction, with Bruno Fernandes looking sharp again and Anthony Elanga bringing some youthful dynamism to the attack.

West Ham are fourth heading into the weekend, although they have played more games than most of their fellow contenders for the top four. After a run of three consecutive victories either side of the New Year, David Moyes' men lost 3-2 to Leeds last weekend. That was a blow, and Moyes might be slightly concerned that his side have kept just one clean sheet in their last six league outings.

West Ham will have to make do without Kurt Zouma, Mark Noble and Angelo Ogbonna through injury. Algeria have been eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations, but Said Benrahma is unlikely to start having only returned to the country in the last couple of days. Moyes expects to have Tomas Soucek available again following a bout of Covid-19.

Manchester United will be unable to call upon the services of Paul Pogba, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, Edinson Cavani and Eric Bailly. Jadon Sancho is likely to be involved, but Victor Lindelof will not play after the defender decided to remain at home with his family following a break-in. Cristiano Ronaldo could miss out with a neck issue but will be assessed in the run-up to kick-off.

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT on Saturday 22 January. 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:
