Seven places may separate Chelsea and Manchester United but a much-needed home win for the Red Devils would allow them to leapfrog Saturday’s visitors to Old Trafford. With five games already played such big jumps won’t be so easy very soon. Make sure you know how to watch a Manchester United vs Chelsea live stream.
In the UK you’ll need a Sky Sports subscription to watch Manchester United vs Chelsea in 4K. To watch in HD, non-Sky customers can purchase a Now TV pass. (Make sure to use a VPN if you’re a UK citizen trying to access your stream from abroad.) In the States the game is available on NBSCSports and with a 7-day free trial on fuboTV.
A big win in Europe for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have been just what the doctor ordered ahead of this game against Chelsea. The United boss has defended forward Mason Greenwood. The under-fire youngster has been left out of United’s last two games and has reportedly been turning up to training late. Nonetheless, he makes the bench today, alongside Axel Tuanzebe after the defender’s excellent performance against PSG.
Timo Werner may prove a trickier opponent, though. With a decent display against Southampton, the German striker looks to be hitting some form. The rest of the new boys in the Chelsea attack might just be getting to know one another too.
Manchester United vs Chelsea kicks off at 5.30pm BST (12.30 ET) on Saturday 23rd October and is set to be a fascinating marker of the season to come for both of these teams.

Watch Manchester United vs Chelsea from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League services, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
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.

When can you watch Match of the Day online and on iPlayer?
Match of the Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match of the Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?
Match of the Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.
The show won’t be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match of the Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it’s broadcast.
You can download Match of the Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.
Match of the Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
