Man City vs Liverpool live stream: watch the Premier League on TV and online

Manchester City are back in Premier League action on Sunday with a home clash against defending champions Liverpool. Kick-off is set for 4.30pm at the Etihad and, with both teams tipped for the title, this should be a sensational match. Make sure you know how to watch a Man City vs Liverpool live stream.

Football fans in the US can watch a Manchester City vs Liverpool live stream on Peacock TV for $4.99 per month. (Make sure to use a VPN if you’re a US citizen trying to access your stream from abroad.) Those in the UK will need a Sky Sports subscription to watch Manchester City vs Liverpool in 4K. To watch in HD, non-Sky customers can purchase a Now TV pass.

Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero has been ruled out of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool, along with Benjamin Mendy and Fernandinho. That presents an opportunity for forward Gabriel Jesus, who could make his second Premier League start of the season following a goalscoring midweek appearance against Olympiakos.

First-placed Liverpool are set to welcome back defender Joel Matip, who has missed the last two games through injury. Jurgen Klopp will also have Naby Keita at his disposal, but Thiago Alcantara is still out.

The last time Manchester City beat Liverpool with the Reds as reigning champions was October 1977. Can Pep Guardiola change that?

Man City vs Liverpool kicks off 4.30pm GMT (11.30 ET) on Sunday 8th November and is set to be a fascinating marker of the season to come for both of these teams.

Watch Man City vs Liverpool from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League services, 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 or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

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 the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.

Match of the Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match of the Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

Match of the Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.

The show won’t be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match of the Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it’s broadcast.

You can download Match of the Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match of the Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
