Two wins from their remaining fixtures would give Arsenal a sniff of a Europa League spot and, perhaps more importantly, the chance of finishing above Spurs. For Aston Villa, this game is about no such small wins. It’s survival. A victory could lift them out of the drop zone just when it counts. Make sure you know how to watch an Aston Villa vs Arsenal live stream wherever you are.
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 Arsenal. (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.
As we reach kick-off, Villa will already know that the great escape is on. Seventeenth-placed Watford are trailing by a typically large Manchester City scoreline which will meet the four-goal swing that Villa need to drag themselves out of the mire should they beat Arsenal. But there’s a good reason that the Birmingham club are where they are and they’ll need something special to get the win at the Emirates.
Mustafi is out with a hamstring problem but forward Eddie Nketiah starts once again after his red card suspension, but it’s going to be more of a question of motivation rather than personnel for Arsenal. Will the Gunners be more interested in their FA Cup Final and making sure they don’t pick up any more injuries?
For Villa, it’s all very different. Dean Smith’s side is fighting for its life with no such regards for future fixtures. Expect full commitment from front to back – high energy, high pace and maybe a fair few goals from both sides.
Aston Villa vs Arsenal 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 to watch an Aston Villa vs Arsenal live stream in the best possible quality, wherever you are.

How to watch Aston Villa vs Arsenal 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.
