Crystal Palace vs Arsenal may rank a fair way down the list of spiciest London derbies, but Monday night's clash does rank as the biggest Patrick Vieira derby going. The totemic ex-Arsenal midfielder has started his spell in the Palace dugout in fine style and will have his eyes on a Selhurst Park scalp after being denied three points at the Emirates by a 95th-minute Alexandre Lacazette equaliser earlier in the season. Make sure you know how to watch a Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live stream wherever you are.

US soccer fans can watch a Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live stream, and many more Premier League matches, on USA Network with Sling TV or FuboTV. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a US fan stuck outside the States. Those in Canada can enjoy the game on DAZN while UK fans can watch on Sky or Now.

The teams are in and Crystal Palace make three changes from their previous outing against Everton in the FA Cup. Vicente Guaita replaces cup keeper Jack Butland in goal, Jeff Schlupp comes in for the injured Michael Olise in midfield and Jordan Ayew gets the nod ahead of Ebere Eze in the front three. Wilfried Zaha starts after recovering from an injury picked up on international duty with Ivory Coast. Eze, Odsonne Edouard and Christian Benteke start on the bench.

The big news for Arsenal is that Aaron Ramsdale returns in goal. The England man is one of two changes Mikel Arteta makes to his Gunners side which beat Aston Villa 1-0 a fortnight ago, as Nuno Tavares replaces the injured Kieran Tierney at left-back. Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and top scorer Emile Smith Rowe all start, with Gabriel Martinelli on the bench.

A glance at Crystal Palace's recent form would indicate a side struggling for consistency, yet there is definitely something stirring in south-east London. The Eagles have soared into the FA Cup semi-finals and their resilient 0-0 draw with Manchester City last time out in the league was testament to their boss' tactical acumen.

Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher has forced his way into Gareth Southgate's England reckoning, while Wilfried Zaha now has the talents of Micheal Olise, Ebere Eze and Odsonne Edouard in attacking positions. Zaha, a one-time Arsenal target, and Olise face late fitness tests.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have surged into fourth place and look a good bet for a return to the Champions League next season. The Gunners have won six of their last seven league games – tasting defeat only against in-form Liverpool – as Arteta seems to have found the right balance between defence and attack.

The match kicks off at 8pm BST tonight, Monday 4th April. Follow our guide on how to watch a Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access 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. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. 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 ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
