Brentford stunned Arsenal in the unforgettable reverse fixture, a rousing 2-0 victory that kicked off the season and secured the Bees' first-ever Premier League points, and the Gunners will be eyeing retribution. This could get fierce, so keep reading for your full guide to getting an Arsenal vs Brentford live stream and watching the Premier League game online from anywhere. 

Arsenal are still erratic but they've improved considerably since that chastening night in August. Still, you don't forget humiliations like that in a hurry, and Mikel Arteta's side, who have racked up the joint-most red cards in the league this season, will have to keep cool heads and let their football do the talking.

Thomas Frank's men ended a run of six successive defeats with a stalemate against Crystal Palace last weekend, but they've slipped perilously close to the relegation spots.

We've got all the info on how to livestream Arsenal vs Brentford from anywhere. And if you're out of the country and can't access your preferred domestic broadcaster, you can always use ExpressVPN to bypass any geo-restrictions.

How to live stream Arsenal vs Brentford if you're abroad

If you're out of the country right now, you can still get access to a live stream - simply drop a shoulder and a shimmy, and use the best VPN around to get past those geo-restrictions. 

With most domestic broadcasters locking streaming services to their country, you may hit a wall when it comes to accessing the likes of Peacock or Optus Sport when overseas. However, by getting yourself a handy streaming VPN, you can hop on a server within the US or UK (or anywhere else for that matter depending on where your online content is geo-restricted to), and this will switch your IP address to make it appear as if you're browsing right from the comfort of your own home.

ExpressVPN is the top dog of VPN providers

Can you watch Arsenal vs Brentford in the UK?

Unfortunately, no broadcasters are showing the Arsenal vs Brentford game in the UK because of that pesky Saturday afternoon blackout.

The rule prevents any football that's being played between 2.45 pm and 5.15 pm from being broadcast live in the UK.

However, there are plenty of games on TV both before and after, with BT Sport showing West Ham vs Newcastle at 12.30 pm GMT, and Sky Sports showing Fulham vs Huddersfield at 12.30 pm, and Man City vs Tottenham at 5.30 pm.

If you aren't in the country right now, using a VPN will allow you to tune in just like you would if you were at home.

How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions

If you're outside of your preferred broadcaster's boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and watch an Arsenal vs Brentford live stream as if you were right at home. Here's our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

  • VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anonymity as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
  • As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
  • Most VPNs offer a list of locations where their servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
  • When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, as well as nifty free VPNs.
  • Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means of using a VPN, sign up and install it
  • To livestream Arsenal vs Brentford, all you need to do is select the right server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions, with your broadcaster of choice opening its online gates to you.
  • We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk-free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money-back guarantee.
