Brighton v Manchester City live stream: How to watch the Premier League from anywhere in the world
Watch a Brighton v Manchester City live stream to enjoy the Saturday evening action from the Premier League
Brighton v Manchester City live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 23 October, 5:30pm
Looking for a Brighton v Manchester City live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.
Brighton will be looking to keep their fine start to the season going as they welcome Manchester City to the Amex Stadium.
The Seagulls are perched in fourth coming into this encounter, having won four and lost only one of their eight games so far - although they have drawn their last three, including successive 0-0s against Arsenal and Norwich.
Graham Potter's side have scored just eight goals in those eight games - only six teams have managed fewer - but they do boast the second-best defensive record in the top flight with five goals conceded, behind City and Liverpool on three.
City have not tasted defeat since losing at Tottenham on the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign, and the champions head to the south coast having trashed Brugge 5-1 on the road in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The visitors' last trip to the Amex, on the penultimate weekend of last season, ended in defeat as they blew a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 - albeit with ten men and having already secured the title.
Brighton will be without Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate on Saturday, while Adam Webster is a doubt - but Yves Bissouma could start after returning to the squad at Norwich last weekend.
Ferran Torres is still out for City after fracturing his foot while on international duty with Spain earlier this month, but John Stones could be involved after missing the Brugge game for personal reasons.
Kick-off is at 5:30pm BST on Saturday 23 October, and UK viewers can watch live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
