Chelsea vs Man United live stream: how to watch online, on TV and in 4K

Chelsea vs Manchester United has been one of the more entertaining fixtures of recent years, with both clubs traditionally aiming to play attacking, easy-on-the-eye football. And this weekend’s fixture has everything in place to continue that tradition, with both sides in decent form following shaky starts.

Chelsea and United started the season with fresh-faced ex-players in the hot seat but following the sacking of Frank Lampard, it’s Thomas Tuchel who will bump fists with Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer on Sunday (kick-off 16:30pm GMT).

Chelsea vs Man United live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, 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.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There’s 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you’ll be surprised how simple it is.

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 Chelsea vs Manchester United.

When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access – in this case, Australia. Then navigate to Optus.

You’ll be able to continue using ExpressVPN from then on to watch anything else on Optus and a host of other services which may also otherwise block you.
