Newcastle United v Manchester United live stream, Monday 27 December, 8pm GMT

Manchester United will return to Premier League action for the first time since December 11 on Monday.

Ralf Rangnick's side had back-to-back games postponed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the camp. Several matches have been called off at short notice and there is a chance of that happening here, but at the time of writing the fixture looks set to go ahead as planned.

United (opens in new tab) have won three league encounters on the bounce to boost their chances of a top-four finish. They were sixth in the standings, five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal (opens in new tab) but with two games in hand, ahead of the Boxing Day fixtures and will now be looking to close the gap separating them from the Champions League spots.

Newcastle (opens in new tab) will require a significant uptick in the second half of the season in order to avoid relegation. They are second-bottom as things stand and defeat on Monday would leave them on 10 points at the midway stage of the campaign.

Back-to-back losses to Liverpool (opens in new tab) and Manchester City (opens in new tab) were to be expected, and this is another game from which Eddie Howe will not necessarily expect his side to get a result.

Manchester United remain without Paul Pogba until the new year, but Rangnick could have several players available again. Centre-back duo Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof may be available for selection, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is also an option after shaking off a knee injury.

Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial, all of whom have been linked with a January exit, will all need to be assessed.

Newcastle will have to make do without Isaac Hayden after the midfielder collected his fifth yellow card of the campaign last time out.

Jonjo Shelvey could undergo a late fitness test as he looks to speed up his recovery from a muscular injury, and Javi Manquillo is expected to be available after a bout of illness. Federico Fernandez, Jamal Lewis and Paul Dummett are definitely out. 

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT on Monday 27 December, and UK viewers can watch live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
