The Aston Villa vs Brentford live stream sees both sides looking to return to winning ways after disappointing results in midweek — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN

Aston Villa vs Brentford live stream, Date, Time, Channels

The Aston Villa vs Brentford live stream takes place on Saturday, April 6.
Time: 3 p.m. BST / 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 2 a.m. AEDT (Apr. 7)
• U.S. — Watch on USA via Sling TV
• Watch anywhere — try NordVPN 100% risk free

Aston Villa XI: Martinez, Digne, Konsa, Torres, Diego Carlos, Bailey, McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Rogers, Tielemans, Watkins.

Brentford XI: Flekken, Collins, Ajer, Zanka, Roerslev, Jensen, Damsgaard, Jane;lt, Reguilon, Mbeumo, Wissa.

Aston Villa remain well positioned in their bid to qualify for the Champions League, for which a top-five finish will probably be sufficient.

Unai Emery will hope to have Ollie Watkins, Emi Martinez and Jacob Ramsey back from injury, while John McGinn is definitely available following suspension. Villa will need a very different game plan against Brentford, who will have much less of the ball than Man City did last time out.

The Bees drew 0-0 with Brighton in the midweek round of matches, leaving them just six points above the relegation zone. Only Luton Town have collected fewer points over the last eight games, with the Bees duly lacking confidence.

Thomas Frank will hope Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa can exploit Aston Villa's high defensive line. Yet Emery's men begin the game as strong favorites.

Read on below for details of how you can watch the Aston Villa vs Brentford live stream. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.

Watch Aston Villa vs Brentford from anywhere

Aston Villa vs Brentford live streams will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

You can still watch Aston Villa vs Brentford live thanks to the wonders of a VPN (Virtual Private Network). The software allows your devices to appear to be back in your home country regardless of where in the world you are, making it ideal for soccer fans away on vacation or on business. Our favorite is NordVPN.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, NordVPN is our favorite.

2. 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 Sling or another service and watch the game.

Unfortunately, there will be no Aston Villa vs Brentford live stream in the U.K. That's because long-standing rules — designed to protect attendances at English league matches — prevent games kicking off at 3 p.m. on a Saturday from being broadcast on live TV.

U.S. fans visiting the U.K. can use one of the best VPN services to access their usual streaming service from abroad. We recommend NordVPN.

As it stands, live Premier League rights are split three ways in the U.K. between Sky Sports, TNT Sports and Amazon Prime Video.

For the 23/24 season, Sky Sports is set to show 128 matches live, while TNT Sports will show 52 matches live, including every Saturday lunchtime kick-off. Amazon Prime Video broadcast 20 matches earlier in the season.
