Today's game may have come too soon for Edinson Cavani and Carlos Vinicius but expect a cracker nonetheless. Reguilón makes his first start at left-back for Spurs with Son and Ndombele also in the XI. Here's all you need to know on how to watch a Manchester United vs Tottenham live stream.

In the UK you'll need a Sky Sports subscription or Now TV pass to watch Manchester United vs Tottenham.

Tottenham's window is looking like one of the best in memory for the Lilywhites and, even if the jury's out on Mourinho for many fans, there is at least the good feeling that he'll be playing with a team of his own creation. Both full-back positions been strengthened with first-choice options, there's added steel to the midfield, Harry Kane finally has back-up and Gareth Bale has returned.

That said, don't expect anything too different from today's line-up. Bale isn't fit and Vinicius won't make an appearance having only just picked his bags up off the carousel. 

Like Lenny Kravitz, United's window ain't over til it's over. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's capture of Cavani is undoubtedly a coup but it's the irons in the fire which will keep supporters on the edge of their seats until deadline day. Jadon Sancho, Luka Jovic, N'Golo Kante, David Alaba, Samuel Umtiti, Kalidou Koulibaly and Ousmane Dembele are all good names to be linked with.

As for today's encounter, there are no fresh injury concerns. Many of the first team players were rested for the mid-week cup game. Fresh legs will be the big advantage given Tottenham have already played three games over the previous seven days.

Manchester United vs Tottenham kicks off at 4.30pm on Sunday 4th October and is set to be a fascinating marker of the season to come for both of these teams.

Watch Manchester United vs Tottenham from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League services, you won't be able to use 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. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. 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 or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

Match of the Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match of the Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

You can download Match of the Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match of the Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
