Week 5 of the Premier League 21/22 fixtures starts today (Friday, September 17), with the season shaping up nicely and one particularly big game to look forward to.

Premier League 21/22 key fixtures

The 21/22 Premier League is now underway. Full Week 5 fixtures below.
Today's game (Friday, September 17):
8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT
Newcastle United vs Leeds United
• U.K. — Watch on Sky Sports
• U.S. — Watch on NBCSN via Sling or Fubo.TV
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The top teams have been in European action this week, with mixed results: Manchester City ran out 6-3 winners over Bruges, Liverpool beat Milan 3-2 and Chelsea won 1-0 against Zenit. But Manchester United lost 2-1 away at Young Boys, despite another Cristiano Ronaldo goal.

Ronaldo also scored twice against Newcastle last weekend, in a 4-1 victory that moved them to the top of the Premier League table. They take on West Ham on Sunday in one of the weekend's most attractive fixtures. The biggest game, though, has to be Chelsea (in second place) vs Spurs (a point behind them in seventh). That's also on Sunday. 

Before all that, we can look forward to the likes of Liverpool vs Crystal Palace, Manchester City vs Southampton and Aston Villa vs Everton tomorrow.

However, the weekend's action starts today, when two of the league's bottom teams, Newcastle and Leeds, meet in what already looks like a crucial game for both. The team news is in and Newcastle have dropped goalkeeper Freddie Woodman, who has conceded 12 goals in his first four Premier League games. Leeds, meanwhile, have given Daniel James a start.

It promises to be an exciting weekend, and the good news is that you can watch it all wherever you are. In fact, if you know where to look you can watch all 380 Premier League 21/22 live streams this season. Read on for our full guide.

How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams of every game

Every Premier League 21/22 game will be streamed live online somewhere in the world. The trick is in finding out where.

In the U.K., for example, only 200 of the 380 will be streamed live — but in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, soccer fans can watch all of them. 

That's good news wherever you are, because a VPN — or virtual private network — will let you tune into U.S. coverage from anywhere on the planet. And the same goes for every other country. So, if you're an American on vacation in the U.K., you'll be able to use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live on your usual services.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

Soccer fans in the U.S. can watch all 380 games of the 2021-2022 Premier League campaign via NBC Sports. The games will be spread between NBC, the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), CNBC and the Peacock streaming service, as well as being available on the NBCSports.com website. We'll include full details of which one you need for each game in our fixture listings below.

Bear in mind that you'll also need to subscribe to one of two special passes to access the Premier League action. The Matchday Pass costs $39.99 and will show 140 live matches, while the more comprehensive Premier League Pass is $64.99. This will include all 380 matches on-demand, and totally ad-free. Plus, you get highlights and analysis packages, including some from Sky Sports in the U.K.

If you've cut the cord and don't have cable, you have plenty of options, too. Our pick of these would be Sling TV: the Sling Blue package costs just $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including NBC and NBCSN. Plus, right now Sling is offering a 30-day trial for the bargain price of $10

Fubo.TV is another option. This costs $65 per month but gives you more than 117 channels, including NBC and NBCSN, plus lots more for sports fans to enjoy.

To watch the games on Peacock, meanwhile, you'll need either the Peacock Premium service ($4.99/month) or ad-free Premium Plus ($9.99/month) version. 

If you already use those services but aren't in the U.S. right now, you can watch the Premier League 21/22 live streams by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

Sling TV offers two packages, both of which cost $35 a month. The Sling Blue plan comes with 30-plus channels, including NBC and NBCSN. Sling is currently offering $25 dollars off the first month.View Deal

If you love sports, you might want to check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front and has dozens of sports channels, including NBC and NBCSN. View Deal

In addition to showing selected Premier League 21/22 live streams, Peacock also has a huge library of licensed content drawn from various brands. That includes shows like 30 Rock, The Voice, Battlestar Galactica, Law & Order: SVU and This Is Us.View Deal

How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams with a VPN

If you're not in your home country during the Premier League 21/22 season and are unable to live stream a game from wherever you are, you can still tune in via a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN makes it appear that you're surfing the web from your home town — meaning that you can access the streaming services you already pay for. It's all totally legal and easy to do.

We've tested many different VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN; it offers superb speeds, excellent customer service and a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out first to see if it's right for you. But you've got other VPN options too, so check out our full list of the best VPN services.

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.View Deal

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBC, Peacock or another service and watch the game.

Canadians are just as lucky as their southern neighbors, because they can watch every Premier League 21/22 live stream on DAZN

What's more, DAZN offers new customers a 30-day free-trial period, with the service then costing $20 CAD per month thereafter, or $150 CAD for the year. DAZN, if you're unfamiliar, has apps on every single streaming platform there is.

Canadians stuck abroad that still want their low-price alternative can use a VPN such as ExpressVPN to trick their streaming device to thinking it's back in the great white north.

Strangely, considering the Premier League is English, you can't watch every EPL game live in the U.K. — instead, a total of 200 games will be streamed live across three services: Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.

Sky Sports has the majority of them, with 128 live games plus huge amounts of supporting coverage including highlights and analysis packages. If you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £25/month to add those channels. Or, if you just want the soccer action, Sky is currently offering a deal on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Premier League that gives you both channels on top of your existing non-Sports package, for £18/month.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £9.99 or month-long access for £33.99 but once again, Sky is currently offering a great deal here: you can sign up for six months of access for just £25/month right now. Now Sports is available on virtually every streaming device out there and is a great option if you don't already have Sky. 

Over on BT Sport you'll be able to watch 52 games in the 2021-22 Premier League. Prices differ hugely depending on whether you already have BT TV and a BT broadband subscription. If you have both, you can add the Sports package for £15/month plus a £20 upfront fee, or go for the £40/month Big Sports package which also includes all of the Sky Sports channels, giving you a total of 160 live streams.

Another option for non-BT subscribers is the BT Sport Monthly Pass (£25), which is similar to Now Sports in that it lets you watch via an app for a fixed time.

Finally, 20 games will be shown on Amazon Prime, which is handy if you already have a subscription. And as always, highlights will also be available on the BBC's Match of the Day show, available free-to-air via the BBC iPlayer.

All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the U.K., you can still follow the games by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN

Those lucky Aussies can watch all 380 Premier League 21/22 live streams on Optus Sport. Optus can be accessed via a dedicated mobile or tablet app, and also on Chromecast and Apple TV — plus it costs a very reasonable $14.99 AUD per month. An Annual Pass is also available for $139 AUD/year, but a current offer knocks that back to a bargain $99 AUD.

Not in Australia right now? You can simply use a VPN to watch all the action on your Optus account, as if you were back home.

Spark is available via web browsers plus loads of streaming devices including Chromecast and Apple TV, so there's no shortage of ways to watch it. And as well as the EPL action you also get cricket, NBA basketball, F1 racing and more.
