Crystal Palace v Man City live stream, BT Sport, Saturday 1 May, 12.30pm BST

Manchester City will win the Premier League title this weekend if they beat Crystal Palace and Manchester United lose to Liverpool.

It has been a good week for Pep Guardiola and his players. Last weekend, City produced perhaps their most dominant performance of the season in beating Tottenham 1-0 in the League Cup final. The game might ultimately have been decided by a header from a set-piece in the final 10 minutes, but City were superb all afternoon and could easily have won by three or four goals.

Then, on Wednesday, Guardiola’s side came from behind to beat PSG 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final. City were outplayed in the first half and fell behind to a Marquinhos header, but they regrouped at the break and turned the game on its head in the second period. The tie is not done yet, but City are in pole position to advance to the Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history.

Crystal Palace, in contrast to their upcoming opponents, have little to play for in the remaining weeks of the campaign. Roy Hodgson’s side are 11 points clear of the drop zone going into the weekend, and it would take an extraordinary turn of events for them to suffer relegation from here. Palace are also unlikely to finish in the top half, with eight points currently separating them from 10th place.

Despite the fact his team could get their hands on the title this weekend, Guardiola is likely to rest some of his regulars ahead of Tuesday’s return fixture against PSG. John Stones is suspended so will definitely miss out, with Aymeric Laporte set to partner Ruben Dias at the back.

Gary Cahill will need to be assessed by Palace’s medical team ahead of Saturday’s contest, but James Tomkins, James McArthur, Mamadou Sakho, Nathan Ferguson and Connor Wickham are definitely out.

Kick-off is at 12.30pm BST and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Crystal Palace v Man City live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of 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.

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.View Deal
