How to stream Manchester United vs. Chelsea

Fact: Both Manchester United and Chelsea have won Premier League titles this decade. Also a fact: Both teams were nowhere close to the two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool last year, as Chelsea finished fourth (winning a Europa League title in the process) and Manchester United finishing sixth. They’ll both look to get back to their title-winning ways in a marquee matchup to close out the first weekend of Premier League play.

Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Manchester United vs. Chelsea, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Sling Orange + Blue

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per 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 Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Manchester United vs. Chelsea: What to watch for

Manchester United did not do the rebuild that many of its fans were hoping for. The biggest incoming player is arguably Harry Maguire, the lauded defender who most recently played with Leicester City, and the Red Devils offloaded Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan without a replacement. United still has a talented roster that includes Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, and David de Gea, but will it be cohesive as a team?

Chelsea’s big news, of course, involves one prominent player going out and one prominent player, of particular interest to American fans, coming in. Eden Hazard, who was arguably the face of Chelsea in his seven years with the club, has moved on to Real Madrid to gain Galacticos status. Christian Pulisic, the 20-year-old American star who had a solid pro debut at Borussia Dortmund, now takes on a new challenge in the Premier League. While Pulisic’s not quite a like-for-like replacement for Hazard, he’s likely going to function in that way in the lineup, so expectations for the talented player from Hershey, Pennsylvania, will be high.
