Looking for an Arsenal vs Manchester United live stream? We’ve got you covered with our handy guide.

Arsenal (opens in new tab), fresh from a fine midweek win over Chelsea (opens in new tab), will kick off the weekend looking to put clear daylight between themselves and Manchester United (opens in new tab) – who are somehow still just about in the race for the top four.

United were dismantled by arch-rivals Liverpool (opens in new tab) for the second time this season on Tuesday night, going down 4-0 at Anfield – a result which interim boss Ralf Rangnick described as “embarrassing”.

The Gunners' 4-2 victory Stamford Bridge – which featured an Eddie Nketiah brace – snapped a run of three straight defeats and breathed fresh life into their bid to qualify for the Champions League.

But for United, it is now one win and three losses from five games in all competitions; they need a big reaction at the Emirates, but it’s a mark of their sorry state that no such thing can be expected.

Team news

Mikel Arteta remains without Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey for this clash, but Takehiro Tomiyasu could return to the squad.

As for United, Scott McTominay is fit again – which is just as well considering Paul Pogba was forced off injured in the week. Rangnick may also have Raphael Varane back available, but Luke Shaw, Fred and Edinson Cavani are still sidelined.

Statistically speaking...

This will be United’s fourth Premier League game played on St George’s Day; they have won the other three without conceding a goal. Arsenal won the last St George’s Day meeting between these teams 5-2 back in 1960.

Kick-off is at 12.30pm BST and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate (opens in new tab) in the UK.

For a limited time, you can get five copies of FourFourTwo for just £5 (opens in new tab)! The offer ends on May 2, 2022.

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:
