Two of the pace-setters meet in a clash that will give us more of an idea as to who has the mettle to make a genuine challenge for the Premier League trophy this season.

Live stream info.

Leicester City vs Man United kicks off at 12.30pm on 26th December. UK football fans can watch the match on BT Sport in 4K.  In the US, subscribers to NBCSN can watch on TV and stream it on the NBCSN live web player. Remember to use a VPN when trying to stream away from home in another country. Those without cable can watch on FuboTV. New subscribers can use this free 7-day trial to get started.

And the teams are in good shape. Brendan Rodgers has declared Jamie Vardy fit for the match. The Foxes striker was substituted in the final moments of Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Spurs, which saw Leicester secure second place in the league, but he’s ready to do battle once more on Boxing Day.

Leicester are currently a point above Man United in the Premier League but the Red Devils have won four of their last five matches. With the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the form of their life, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are growing in confidence by the day.

Former defender John O’Shea has even claimed that United are on the cusp of recapturing the glory days of Rooney, Tevez and Ronaldo.   

“You see the amount of goals they score, it’s a sign they want to get that attacking flowing football going again, the counter-attacking style with that speed,” O’Shea told Talksport earlier this week. 

Leicester City will be up for a fight and will be doing everything in their power to avoid a repeat of July’s 2-0 defeat to United – especially with Vardy due to start. The 33-year-old talisman has racked up 11 goals in 13 outings, putting him behind only Mo Salah in this season’s list of top Premier League goalscorers.

It’s an 12.30pm kick-off at the King Power Stadium on Saturday 26th December. Read on to find out how to watch a Leicester City vs Man United live stream, wherever you are in the world.

Watch Leicester City vs Man United anywhere in the world 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 NordVPN.

Nord VPN 3 months FREE + 30-day money-back guarantee
You can get three months free when you sign up to a two-year plan, bringing VPN access to six simultaneous smart devices including desktop computers, laptops, mobiles and tablets running Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android. Nord 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, and pick a server 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.
