Two of English football's biggest rivals battle it out in the Premier League in what we expect to be a full-blooded encounter. Don't miss a moment with our Man United vs Liverpool live stream guide.

These two sides finally go toe-to-toe in this rescheduled encounter after it was originally called off on May 2 due to safety concerns caused by fan protests.

Players and staff could not make it to Old Trafford on that date due to the extraordinary scenes around the stadium that saw thousands of United fans campaigning against the failed European Super League project and the Glazer family's ownership of the club.

The Red Devils were back in action only two days ago with a defeat to a Champions League-chasing Leicester side officially handing the title to local rivals Man City.

Before City can lift that trophy, United must host now-dethroned Liverpool at Old Trafford as they look to keep themselves in Champions League contention.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games and, despite being rank outsiders for a top four spot, are still mathematically in the running as things stand.

Now may be the perfect time for Liverpool to face United with their old adversaries coming into the game on the back of a defeat coupled with the off-the-field drama causing something of a fixture pileup at this late stage. United will also have one eye on their upcoming Europa League Final.

This rivalry game never disappoints so it's sure to be an entertaining watch regardless of how it plays out. Read on to find out how to watch a Man United vs Liverpool live stream, no matter where you are in the world.
