Week 17 of the Premier League 21/22 fixtures gives us a batch of midweek games — and they might be the last we get for a while. Unfortunately, we’re seeing multiple cancellations due to a major Covid outbreak in the U.K., and there are now calls for the weekend’s fixtures to be shelved.
Premier League 21/22 key fixtures
The 21/22 Premier League is now underway. Full Week 17 fixtures below.Today’s big game (Thursday, December 16):► Liverpool vs Newcastle United• 8 p.m. GMT / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT• U.K. — Watch on BT Sport• U.S. — Watch on Peacock (requires Premium or Premium Plus subscription)• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free
Manchester United’s game against Brentford on Tuesday was the first casualty of the Covid outbreak, followed by yesterday’s game between Burnley and Watford and now Leicester vs Spurs, which was to have taken place today.
With multiple Premier League players known to have tested positive for the virus, and with some 25% of EPL stars reportedly unvaccinated, there are real fears that the situation will soon be untenable, with teams unable to find enough players for a starting 11.
Today’s remaining two games are due to go ahead as it stands, with Liverpool taking on Newcastle and Chelsea playing Everton and Leicester City hosting Tottenham. Both of those matches are vital in the Premier League title battle, and they could well be just as important when it comes to relegation. Nor is that just a reference to Newcastle, as Everton are only 7pts above the drop zone and have lost four out of five.
This could be the last Premier League action we get for a while, so you won’t want to miss out. So read on to find out how to watch the Premier League 21/22 season, wherever you are.

Every Premier League 21/22 game will be streamed live online somewhere in the world. The trick is in finding out where.
In the U.K., for example, only 200 of the 380 will be streamed live — but in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, soccer fans can watch all of them.
That’s good news wherever you are, because a VPN — or impian private network — will let you tune into U.S. coverage from anywhere on the planet. And the same goes for every other country. So, if you’re an American on vacation in the U.K., you’ll be able to use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live on your usual services.
Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams in the US

Soccer fans in the U.S. can watch all 380 games of the 2021-2022 Premier League campaign via NBC Sports. The games will be spread between NBC, the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), CNBC and the Peacock streaming service, as well as being available on the NBCSports.com website. We’ll include full details of which one you need for each game in our fixture listings below.
Bear in mind that you’ll also need to subscribe to one of two special passes to access the Premier League action. The Matchday Pass costs $39.99 and will show 140 live matches, while the more comprehensive Premier League Pass is $64.99. This will include all 380 matches on-demand, and totally ad-free. Plus, you get highlights and analysis packages, including some from Sky Sports in the U.K.
If you’ve cut the cord and don’t have cable, you have plenty of options, too. Our pick of these would be Sling TV: the Sling Blue package costs just $35 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including NBC and NBCSN. Plus, right now Sling is offering a 30-day trial for the bargain price of $10.
Fubo.TV is another option. This costs $65 per month but gives you more than 117 channels, including NBC and NBCSN, plus lots more for sports fans to enjoy.
To watch the games on Peacock, meanwhile, you’ll need either the Peacock Premium service ($4.99/month) or ad-free Premium Plus ($9.99/month) version.
If you already use those services but aren’t in the U.S. right now, you can watch the Premier League 21/22 live streams by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN.How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams with a VPN
If you’re not in your home country during the Premier League 21/22 season and are unable to live stream a game from wherever you are, you can still tune in via a impian private network, or VPN. A VPN makes it appear that you’re surfing the web from your home town — meaning that you can access the streaming services you already pay for. It’s all totally legal and easy to do.
We’ve tested many different VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN; it offers superb speeds, excellent customer service and a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out first to see if it’s right for you. But you’ve got other VPN options too, so check out our full list of the best VPN services.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we’ve said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
dua. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you’re in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you’d select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBC, Peacock or another service and watch the game.

Canadians are just as lucky as their southern neighbors, because they can watch every Premier League 21/22 live stream on DAZN.
What’s more, DAZN offers new customers a 30-day free-trial period, with the service then costing $20 CAD per month thereafter, or $150 CAD for the year. DAZN, if you’re unfamiliar, has apps on every single streaming platform there is.
Canadians stuck abroad that still want their low-price alternative can use a VPN such as ExpressVPN to trick their streaming device to thinking it’s back in the great white north.How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams in the UK

Strangely, considering the Premier League is English, you can’t watch every EPL game live in the U.K. — instead, a total of 200 games will be streamed live across three services: Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.
Sky Sports has the majority of them, with 128 live games plus huge amounts of supporting coverage including highlights and analysis packages. If you already have a Sky subscription that doesn’t include Sports, you’ll need to pay £22/month to add those channels. Or, if you just want the soccer action, Sky is currently offering a deal on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Premier League that gives you both channels on top of your existing non-Sports package, for £18/month.
Whichever package you go for, you’ll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.
If you don’t want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £9.99 or month-long access for £33.99 but once again, Sky is currently offering a great deal here: you can sign up for six months of access for just £25/month right now. Now Sports is available on virtually every streaming device out there and is a great option if you don’t already have Sky.
Over on BT Sport you’ll be able to watch 52 games in the 2021-22 Premier League. Prices differ hugely depending on whether you already have BT TV and a BT broadband subscription. If you have both, you can add the Sports package for £15/month plus a £20 upfront fee, or go for the £40/month Big Sports package which also includes all of the Sky Sports channels, giving you a total of 160 live streams.
Another option for non-BT subscribers is the BT Sport Monthly Pass (£25), which is similar to Now Sports in that it lets you watch via an app for a fixed time.
Finally, 20 games will be shown on Amazon Prime, which is handy if you already have a subscription. And as always, highlights will also be available on the BBC’s Match of the Day show, available free-to-air via the BBC iPlayer.
All sounds great, right? But if you’re not in the U.K., you can still follow the games by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN. How to watch Premier League 21/22 live streams in Australia
