Liverpool go into this game just one point behind Man City, with seven games remaining. However, Liverpool have by far the tougher run-in, with a local derby against Everton at the weekend, plus Tottenham still to play, a Champions League semi-final against Villarreal and the FA Cup final against Chelsea to negotiate. That makes this a must-win game for Jürgen Klopp's team.

Man Utd may have mixed feelings about this fixture: Liverpool are their fierce rivals going back decades, but a win here would go a long way towards sending the Premier League title to the blue half of Manchester. 

Selection-wise, Bruno Fernandes was involved in a car crash yesterday, but was unhurt and should be available to play. However, Cristiano Ronaldo will not feature, following the tragic death of his baby son. Surprisingly, centre-back Phil Jones makes only his second league appearance since January 2020.

For Liverpool, Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip are the only changes from the team that beat Man City in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final. Here's how they line up:

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho, Salah, Mane, Diaz.

Manchester United: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Lindelof, Jones, Wan-Bissaka, Matic, Pogba, Fernandes, Elanga, Rashford.

How will this one play out? You can find out by watching the Liverpool vs Manchester United live stream. Read on and we'll show you how to do that.

How to watch the Liverpool vs Manchester United live stream wherever you are

The Liverpool vs Manchester United live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

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.

ExpressVPN

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.

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 Sling or another service and watch the game.

Fubo.TV is another option for live TV. Their Pro Plan costs $70 per month but gives you 121 channels, including USA, plus lots more for sports fans to enjoy.

Canadians can watch the Liverpool vs Manchester United live stream on DAZN

Sadly, DAZN no longer offers new customers a 30-day free-trial period, so you'll have to pay the $20 CAD per month fee, although you can save a little by buying annually ($150 CAD). 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 into thinking it's back in the great white north.

Sky Sports has the Liverpool vs Manchester United live stream in the U.K., so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £25/month to add those channels. 

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. 

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