Two sides looking to keep their European qualification hopes alive go head-to-head on Saturday as Liverpool host Brentford at Anfield.

The Reds came into this weekend’s fixtures four points clear of Brighton in what now looks likely to be a race between the two sides to secure fifth place in the Premier League, with fourth-place Man United now seemingly too far ahead to be caught, despite their defeat to the Seagulls on Thursday. 

While it seems likely the hosts will miss out on a Champions League spot, the fact they’ve recovered enough from their indifferent form for most of the season to be in with a chance of Europa League qualification will be taken as a positive for boss Jurgen Klopp.

They now face a Brentford side that appears to be hitting some form again having won their last two. The Bees remain in the mix for a Europa Conference League place, and the nature of Thomas Frank’s side comeback late on to beat Nottingham Forest last week suggests a difficult evening is in store for the hosts.

Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

How to watch the Liverpool vs. Brentford game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the Premier League using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming EPL matches may vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
