Aston Villa are nearly out of time to avoid relegation from the Premier League this season, and their task gets no less arduous as they welcome top-four-chasing Manchester United to Villa Park this evening.
Those in the US can buy a season pass from NBC Sports Gold and watch every minute of every remaining Premier League game live for just $9.99, including Aston Villa vs Man United. (Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re a US citizen stuck away from home.) UK viewers can find the game live in 4K on Sky Sports.
The hosts are currently four points from safety, with five games remaining, so getting something from this game is surely imperative if they’re to catch Watford and West Ham United above them. Villa could even find themselves further down the league if Bournemouth get a result at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the earlier kick-off.
Standing in the way is a Manchester United side who have stepped up their top-four chase since the restart, buoyed by the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in midfield, and who will not be looking to hand out any favours this evening.
Everybody has an off day, but Dean Smith’s Villa side will probably need a perfect performance if they’re to get the win they so dearly need this evening.
Villa vs United kicks off at 8.15pm. Remember that rules on substitutions have altered slightly. Teams can now make five changes in order to combat fatigue. Read on below to find out how you can see tonight’s game in the best possible quality, wherever you are.
Watch all remaining live Premier League games for $9.99
Premier League restart rights in the US belong to NBC, CNBC and NBCSN and you can watch all the remaining games on NBC Sports Gold’s Premier League Pass for just $9.99, including Aston Villa vs Man United.
It’s only available in the US, so any US citizen stuck outside their own country during the crisis will need to use a VPN to get access.
The NBC Sports Gold app is available iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Chromecast. You can also watch EPL streams on NBCSportsGold.com.
How to watch Aston Villa vs Manchester United abroad using a VPN
US citizens away from home or stuck abroad will need a VPN to access the their NBC Sports Gold Pass streams from outside the States. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a US national.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
