With Manchester City and Manchester United occupying the top two spots in the English Premier League (EPL), this weekend’s Manchester derby has the potential to be a feisty affair. While City are on the march to a third EPL title in four years, United have earned a reputation for turning big games into 0-0 bore fests. While this game could yet turn out that way, it is still a must-see EPL game, wherever you are in the world.
Here’s how you can live stream Manchester United vs. Manchester City this weekend on all of your devices including Amazon Firestick, Android TV, PC & Smartphones.

The game takes place on Sunday 7th March at 16:30 UK time. If you’re watching outside of the UK, here are some of the key timings for the timezones where the EPL is most popular:
- 11:30 US Eastern Time
- 08:30 US Pacific Time
- 02:30 Australian Eastern Standard Time

Manchester United vs. Manchester City Live Streaming
The best way to watch Manchester United vs. Manchester City is using a virtual private network (VPN). Not only does using a VPN help you maintain your privacy online, but it also means you can watch the game on your device from anywhere in the world. This is ideal if you’re a fan of either team and want to watch the game via your usual methods while outside your home country.
Please note we’re talking here about streaming via official content providers and not from the unlicensed streams that are easy to find. As well as potentially loading harmful content on your device, unlicensed streams also tend to be slower, of lower quality, and lag terribly. If you’re talking to your friends on WhatsApp while watching the game, they’ll be talking about a goal five minutes before you see it hit the net!
Stick to your usual or trusted sources of EPL content and use a VPN to enjoy the highest quality that you’re used to.
Follow the below process to set up your VPN to watch the game:
- Sign-up with a suitable VPN provider. Our recommendation is to use ExpressVPN, one of the most reliable VPN providers out there.
- Download the ExpressVPN app or browser extension on the device you’ll be using to watch the game.
- Log in and connect to a server in your home country.
- Navigate to the website or open the app where you’re going to watch the game.
- Before kick-off, try watching something else. This ensures you can actually watch the source without any problems and gives you time to iron out any issues you have before you want to sit down and watch the game on Sunday (or Monday if you’re in the Far East or Australia!).
Once you’re all set and ready to go, you just need to make sure you have a subscription with the relevant provider. If you don’t already have a TV or streaming subscription, here’s a look at how you can access Manchester United vs. Manchester City this weekend as well as other EPL games over the coming months.
Tip: You may use the free streaming sources mentioned below from any country if you are using a VPN. The VPN service we recommended also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
