Manchester City host Chelsea at the Etihad today in what could be the last big Premier League clash of the season. Can City can win their seventh English domestic crown – and get one over on their fellow Champions League finalists? Kick-off is at 5.30pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch a Man City vs Chelsea live stream in 4K and wherever you are.
The team news is in and City start with both Aguero and Gabriel Jesus as they search for their Premier League-winning points. Chelsea go with an attack of Pulisic, Werner and Ziyech. N’Golo Kante and young Billy Gilmour take the midfield.
Outside today’s personnel. Tuchel and City boss Pep Guardiola are rumoured to be locked in a battle to sign £60m Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski this summer.
Man City vs Chelsea live stream
Man City vs Chelsea is always a cracking game, but with it a dress rehearsal for the Champions League Final on 29th May it’s now a must-see match for any fan of the beautiful game. To add even more spice to proceedings, it’s Manchester City’s first chance to secure the English league title at home – another tick for Pep Guardiola, who stands on the verge of becoming City’s greatest-ever manager.
Man City might be top of the Premier League with 80 points but fourth-place Chelsea beat the Sky Blues 1-0 when the two teams contested the FA Cup semi-final last month. Furthermore, Chelsea have yet to lose an away game under Thomas Tuchel and dominated Real Madrid to make it an all-English Champions League Final, so today’s clash could be one of the hardest-fought games of the season.
It’s a 5.30pm BST kick-off at the Etihad stadium this afternoon. UK viewers can watch in 4K on Sky Sports. US viewers can catch the action on NBCSN and lucky football fans in Australia can subscribe to Optus Sport to catch all of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League matches for just AU$14.99/month.

Watch Man City vs Chelsea live stream abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch Man City vs Chelsea.
When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access – in this case, Australia. Then navigate to Optus.
You’ll be able to continue using ExpressVPN from then on to watch anything else on Optus and a host of other services which may also otherwise block you.
