Man City vs. Tottenham Livestream: How to Watch Premier League Soccer From Anywhere

Kevin De Bruyne's City host Harry Kane's Spurs at the Etihad Stadium, with both sides looking to bounce back after damaging derby defeats.

Both teams come into this crucial English Premier League clash off the back of stinging derby defeats. Man City coach Pep Guardiola saw his men give up an early lead to go down 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford in controversial circumstances last Saturday, while Spurs were brushed aside by their North London rivals Arsenal in a 2-0 defeat at home the following day.

A win here for Manchester City would see them cut the gap to current EPL leaders Arsenal to five points, while a victory for Antonio Conte's Spurs would leave them just two behind fourth-placed Newcastle.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane could surpass Spurs legend Jimmy Greaves' club record of 266 goals in this match, with Kane just one behind the late forward's tally, which has stood for over 50 years. City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, meanwhile, is eyeing up a landmark of his own, with the Belgium star just four short of 100 assists after 228 appearances in England's top flight.

Below, we'll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

Man City vs. Spurs: When and where?

Manchester City hosts Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Thursday, Jan. 19. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. local time in the UK (3 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. PT in the US).

How to watch the Man City vs. Spurs game online from anywhere using a VPN

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. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. 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.
