Five games into the new Premier League season and this much is clear — there's still a lot of football left to be played. And this Sunday sees two Top 5 teams going at it, with Arsenal and Leicester City closing out the weekend.

How to watch Arsenal vs. Leicester from anywhere

If you're not going to be in your usual neck of the woods and still want to watch Arsenal and Leicester, you'll need a slight workaround. And that comes in the form of a VPN. A Virtual Private Network allows you to route all of your network traffic through a specific set of servers in a specific country — effectively make it appear that your computer (and thus the eyeballs watching it) also are in that country.
