With Mohamed Salah in the red corner and Romelu Lukaku in blue, there's some serious firepower on show. It's important, then, to read on for your full guide to getting a Liverpool vs Chelsea live stream and watching the Premier League game online from anywhere.
Liverpool host Chelsea in the first genuine heavyweight clash of the season. The campaign may be in its infancy, but both sides fancy themselves as title contenders.
With Liverpool's title defence a disaster, the silver lining for Jurgen Klopp's men is that expectations have been lowered for this season, with Chelsea and Man United instead under the greatest pressure to challenge Man City's supremacy.
Lukaku got straight down to business on his second debut for Chelsea, scoring and running riot against Arsenal, and his battle with fellow man-mountain Virgil van Dijk should be something to behold. Nobody will want to be the meat in that sandwich, that's for sure.
We've got all the info on how to live stream Liverpool vs Chelsea from anywhere. And if you're out of the country and can't access your preferred domestic broadcaster, you can always use a VPN to bypass any geo-restrictions (opens in new tab).

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 a Liverpool vs Chelsea 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 its 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, including VPN for Mac, VPN for Android smartphones, an iPad VPN, and even a range of fairly nifty free VPNs.
- Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it.
- To live stream Liverpool vs Chelsea, all you need to do is select a UK server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions, with the likes of Sky Go 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 (opens in new tab).
