The Brighton vs Man Utd live stream is a vital game for the Red Devils, who must better Newcastle's result against Brentford to guarantee European soccer next season — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

Brighton vs Man Utd live stream, Date, Time, Channels

The Brighton vs Man Utd live stream takes place Sunday (May 19).
Time: 4 p.m. BST / 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 1 a.m. AEST (Monday, May 20)
• U.S. — Watch on CNBC (via Sling TV) or Peacock
• Watch anywhere — try NordVPN 100% risk free

Brighton XI: Steele, Gross, Webster, Igor Julio, Barco, Baleba, Lallana, Moder, Adingra, Welbeck, Joao Pedro.

Man Utd XI: Onana, Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Martinez, Dalot, Amrabat, Mainoo, Diallo, McTominay, Garnacho, Fernandes.

Calculators at the ready. Four teams are in the mix for European qualification on the final day of the EPL season, with Man Utd needing help from elsewhere.

Whatever happens this weekend, Erik ten Hag's side have a second chance. If they win the FA Cup Final later this month, they will advance to the Europa League. But if Man City triumph at Wembley Stadium on May 25, Man Utd will need to have finished seventh in the EPL to qualify for the Europa Conference League.

Thanks to a 3-2 victory over Newcastle on Wednesday, Man Utd are eighth ahead of their trip to Brighton. They are level on points with Newcastle but have an inferior goal difference. As such, they must better the Magpies' result against Brentford in order to finish seventh. Realistically, that means beating Brighton and hoping for a favor at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brighton have nothing tangible left to play for, although Roberto De Zerbi will be keen to secure a top-half finish ahead of his departure after this game. The Seagulls are an attack-minded team and they will fancy their chances of causing Man Utd's shaky backline some problems.

The visitors to the Amex Stadium will have to soak up pressure against opponents that tend to dominate possession. When the ball changes hands, Man Utd will look to get up the pitch quickly. 

Neither team has a particularly good defensive record, so goals should be on the cards.
