Manchester United need just a point from their final two games to confirm Champions League football qualification as Erik Ten Hag’s first season in charge comes to a close.
With both remaining Premier League fixtures at Old Trafford, the Red Devils will be confident of getting the job done, and they would be forgiven for having half an eye on next week’s FA Cup final against local rivals Manchester City.
It has been a much more disappointing season for Chelsea, who will finish the season with their worst-ever Premier League points total and a bottom-half place.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Lisandro Martinez and Marcel Sabitzer are both out for Manchester United, but Marcus Rashford – named by FourFourTwo this week as one of the best Premier League players this season – is likely to be available.
Chelsea have – deep breath – Benoit Badiashile, Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell, Armando Broja, Marc Cucurella, Reece James and Marcus Bettinelli in the treatment room.
Manchester United: WWLLW
Referee: Stuart Atwell
Assistants: Ian Hussin and Richard West
Fourth official: Anthony Taylor is the fourth official
VAR: Michael Salisbury
Old Trafford will be played at Old Traffford in Manchester.
Kick-off and channel
Manchester United vs Chelsea kick-off is at 8pm BST on Thursday May 25 in the UK. The game is being shown on Sky Sports.
In the US, kick-off time is 3pm ET / 12pm PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
