Cristiano Ronaldo saved Manchester United (again) on Thursday night, scoring the equaliser that secured a point for Ralf Rangnick’s side. That keeps the Red Devils within touching distance of Spurs, albeit having played more games. United haven’t won since squeezing past Norwich a couple of weeks ago, but Monday night’s opponents haven’t beaten them since an FA Cup victory way back in 1938.
A goalless draw with Tottenham last weekend took Brentford to the magical 40-point mark, all but securing another season of Premier League football in west London. The Bees are in fine form entering the last few games of the campaign, winning five of their last seven fixtures, including that 4-1 thrashing of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Can Christian Eriksen and co. cause a similar upset at Old Trafford?
Kick-off is at 8pm BST (3pm ET) on Monday 2nd May. Read on to find out on how to watch a Manchester United vs Brentford live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.
US: Manchester United vs Brentford live stream
Premier League football fans in the US can watch a Manchester United vs Brentford live stream on USA Network which can be accessed through cable-cutting services Sling and FuboTV.
Sling currently has an offer where you can get the first month of its Sling TV Blue package for $25 ($10 off the usual monthly price). Meanwhile, you can watch a Manchester United vs Brentford free live stream with the 7-day free trial of FuboTV. There are no long contracts with either service. If you’re not happy with them, you can cancel them at any time.
Of course, Sling and FuboTV are only available within the States so be sure to use a VPN if you’re a US subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it’s reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.
Watch a Manchester United vs Brentford live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Manchester United vs Brentford live stream rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are easy 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. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
How to use a VPN for Manchester United vs Brentford
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

3. Then head over to Sling or FuboTV on your browser or device and enjoy the Manchester United vs Brentford live stream.
If, for whatever reason, you can’t get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
