The Manchester City vs Liverpool live stream is the biggest fixture of the season so far: the Premier League top two separated by a single point and with just eight games to go. It doesn’t get much better than this – and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN (opens in a new tab).
The idea that these two teams would be locked in a real title chase would have seemed fanciful not too long ago. Manchester City had a 12-point lead in January and appeared to be heading for the trophy. But defeat to Tottenham and draws with Southampton and Crystal Palace, coupled with a 10-game winning streak for Liverpool, brought them back to the stage where Liverpool even went top (briefly) on Saturday.
The winners here won’t be champions of course, but they would have the momentum and the lead, and those two factors count for a lot. A draw would slightly favor City, especially as they have the theoretically easier run, with only West Ham and Wolves among the top teams yet to play; Liverpool have yet to face Tottenham, Man Utd and Wolves.
Both faced tough matches in the Champions League yesterday, and both won. But Man City had the toughest time, with a single goal from Kevin de Bruyne shattering Atlético Madrid’s massive defense as Liverpool won 3-1 at Benfica.
Neither team has major injury problems, so it’s more a question of who Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola confide in for this biggest of big games. Jota, Mané and Salah ahead of Liverpool? Or will there be room for the in-form Diogo Jota? Sterling, Mahrez and Foden for Man City? Where could Jack Grealish enter?

How to watch Manchester City vs Liverpool live stream wherever you are
The Manchester City vs Liverpool live stream will be shown on many different channels around the world, but what if you’re not in your home country and want to watch it on your regular service ?
The answer is to use a VPN or Virtual Private Network. A VPN will allow you to connect to your home coverage wherever you are, which means that if you are abroad you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the matches live as if you were in your living room.
Our current favorite is ExpressVPN (opens in a new tab), thanks to its combination of blazing speed, great customer service, and great device support. It also offers a 30-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, so you can check it out without having to sign up long term.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we said, ExpressVPN (opens in a new tab) is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you want to connect to in the VPN app. For example, if you are in the UK and want to view a US service, you would select US from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Peacock or another service and watch the game.
