The match is on NBCSN and NBC Sports Gold; these streaming services provide fans the opportunity to catch Premier League action throughout the season.

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $30 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here. Sling Blue also brings Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and Headline News as part of its regular slate of channels, with Fox Business Channel available for those who get the Sling Blue News Extra add-on.

If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $45 per month.

Other features include a Free Cloud DVR tier for all subscribers (allowing 10 hours of recording a month), the ability to record all live linear channels, and no VOD preemption on any channels. New subscribers get $10 off the first month.

To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Best of Spanish + Sling Orange for $35 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Arsenal vs. Manchester United: Preview, recent form, odds, upcoming fixtures

Arsenal (Last 5 Premier League matches: WLDDL) lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to Chelsea over the weekend to drop to 12th in the table. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the opening goal in Arsenal’s impressive first-half performance, but the defense gave up two late goals to absorb yet another defeat. The first goal came courtesy of Jorginho, who many thought should have been off for a second yellow, and the second goal was the result of a mistake from the much-maligned Shkodran Mustafi, who suffered a head-to-head collision just moments before. Yet the fact remains: Arsenal has now just one win in its last 12 Premier League matches. These are the dark times. 

Manchester United (Last 5 Premier League matches: WDLWW) bounced up to fifth in the standings with a 2-0 win over Burnley. Anthony Martial, on a bit of a roll lately, scored the opener, with Marcus Rashford providing a late insurance goal in stoppage time. While it’s still a bit more of a climb to break into the top four, United only finds itself four points behind an inconsistent Chelsea squad heading into the New Year. 

Odds

The William Hill oddsmakers call this one pretty even: Arsenal’s at +170 odds (wager $100 to win $170), United’s a slightly more favored foe at +150, and a draw is set for +260.

Upcoming Fixtures

Arsenal, Monday, Jan. 6 vs. Leeds United (FA Cup); Saturday, Jan. 11 at Crystal Palace (Premier League)

Manchester United, Saturday, Jan. 4 at Wolves (FA Cup); Tuesday, Jan. 7 vs. Manchester United (League Cup)
