The Liverpool vs. Man United live stream starts at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. ET today (Sunday, Jan. 17).
In the U.S. you'll watch on Peacock Premium, while U.K. viewers can tune into Sky Sports for the broadcast.

It's time for the Liverpool vs. Man United live stream, a confrontation between the first- and second-place teams in the Premier League that also happen to be the most successful clubs in English soccer. And the last time Manchester United found themselves at the top of the Premier table this late in the season, the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of the club. 

So the Red Devils are hoping their return to the top isn't a brief one, but rivals Liverpool are standing in their way. Defending champs Liverpool would pull even with Man United with a win, while a loss would put the Merseyside team six points behind their rivals.
