Liverpool vs Man United live stream: how to watch the football in 4K

Liverpool vs Manchester United is a football game almost as old as time itself, made all the juicier by the finely-balanced state of the Premier League. A win for the Red Devils creates some dangerous distance for Liverpool. A Klopp-coloured victory reels the old foes back in. Make sure you know how to watch a Liverpool vs Man United live stream, wherever you are in the world.

UK football fans will need a Sky Sports subscription to watch Liverpool vs Manchester United in 4K. To watch in HD, non-Sky customers can purchase a Now TV pass. In the US, the game is on Peacock TV which costs just $4.99 per month for a glut of Premier League football games. Remember to use a VPN when trying to stream away from home in another country.

The game is very much a test for this revitalised Manchester United team which hasn’t lost in its last 13 league encounters. Their excellent form has drawn them all the way up to the top of the table but there have been some bumps in cup competitions along the way.

Losses to superior opposition, in the form of neighbours Manchester City and RB Leipzig, lie fresh on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s mind who sees this fixture against as an indicator of how good his side really are. Luckily for United, there are few real injury problems. Defender Victor Lindelof may not feature given his back complaint, particularly with the successful return of Eric Bailly last Tuesday against Burnley.

Liverpool, of course, have to cope without star defender Virgil van Dijk for the campaign which isn’t helped much by the absence of Joe Gomez either. Fortunately, the injury list has considerably shrunk in recent weeks otherwise, with only Diego Jota and Naby Keita missing further forward.

Nonetheless, this is a game that Liverpool would expect to win, were their fans allowed into the stadium. On a quiet night in Anfield, though, anything is possible. Can Jurgen Klopp lend the focus to his men that they’ll need to put United away and rekindle their run for the title?

It’s a 4.30pm GMT (11.30am ET) kick-off at Anfield on Sunday 17th January. Read on to find out how to watch a Liverpool vs Man United live stream, wherever you are in the world.

Liverpool 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 NordVPN.

Nord VPN from £2.86 per month

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.
