Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad kicking off the weekend’s action first on Saturday
After a lengthy two-week international break, the English Premier League gets back up and running on Saturday, with this tasty-looking clash between big guns Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad kicking off the weekend’s action first on Saturday.
The hosts will be looking to close the gap to league leaders Arsenal, while the Reds will be desperate to keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top four — with the added incentive of derailing City’s title challenge.
The break arguably came at a bad time for City, with the defending champs having won each of their last six games across all competitions. Striker Erling Haaland scored an incredible eight goals in City’s last two games against RB Leipzig and Burnley, but the Norwegian faces a late fitness test for Saturday’s clash.
Liverpool have a poor record at the Etihad, having only won one of their last 13 top-flight away meetings with City.
Boss Jürgen Klopp will nevertheless draw encouragement from his side’s 1-0 win in the reverse fixture at Anfield back in October, a match that was arguably the Reds’ best performance of the season so far.
Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.
If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.
