Newcastle will be looking to avenge their recent defeat by Manchester United in the final of the EFL Cup when the two teams go head-to-head at St James' Park.

The Magpies were beaten 2-0 at Wembley in February but they are still very much alive in the race for the top four.

Indeed, Eddie Howe's side would overtake United with a triumph in front of their own fans on Sunday.

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

Newcastle won back-to-back games prior to the international break, beating Wolves and Nottingham Forest to move within two points of the top four.

Manchester United lost 7-0 to Liverpool last month, before being held to a 0-0 draw by Southampton. However, they then beat Fulham in the last eight of the FA Cup.

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 including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
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!
