The Premier League is back and there are some serious stories to pick up on, not least of all is that of Manchester United who now sit sixth in the table after a run of three losses from the last four. Can today's trip to low-down Watford bring a good result or will this be the last game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer? Make sure you know how to watch a Watford vs Manchester United live stream wherever you are.

US soccer fans can watch a Watford vs Manchester United live stream, and many more Premier League matches, on Peacock TV for just $4.99 per month. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a US fan stuck outside the States. Those in Canada can enjoy the game free on DAZN with this 30-day free trial.

The team news is in and Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay all start for United. Paul Pogba is still serving a suspension. Meanwhile, Nicolas Nkoulou – a recent arrival on a free transfer - starts for Watford. Kuraj Kucka is suspended, while Kabasele, Sierralta and Sema are all injured.

Luckily for Solskjaer and the United faithful, Watford are one of the few teams with worse form than the Red Devils right now. Watford have lost four out of their last five including a 5-0 thumping by Liverpool in front of the home crowd which won't have pleased manager Claudio Ranieri much either.

The Hornets' most recent loss to fifth-placed Arsenal was a far closer run affair, though. Unfortunately, a second yellow to midfielder Juraj Kucka means that the Slovak will miss this weekend's home encounter. Centre half Francisco Sierralta is out injured and Turkish midfielder Ozan Tufan will undergo a late fitness test.

After a fair bit of transfer talk of interest from Real Madrid, it's expected that United's holding midfielder Donny van de Beek will get a go in the starting XI. It's particularly likely given that Paul Pogba is not only suspended but also injured after playing for France over the international break.

The match kicks off at 3pm BST today, 20th November, at Vicarage Road. Follow our guide on how to watch a Watford vs Manchester United live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.

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.
