Liverpool v Manchester City live stream, Sky Sports, Sunday 7 February, 4.30pm GMT
Manchester City have the chance to knock Liverpool out of the Premier League title race at Anfield on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side looked to be back to their best after impressive victories over West Ham and Tottenham, but a 1-0 defeat by Brighton on Wednesday means this has become a must-win game for the defending champions. Liverpool were deservedly beaten by Graham Potter’s side in midweek, and are now as close to eighth place as they are to top spot. Indeed, were Liverpool to lose on Sunday they would find themselves 10 points adrift of City, who have played one game fewer.
Pep Guardiola’s men extended their winning run to nine games last time out, as they eased to a 2-0 triumph over Burnley at Turf Moor. That was City’s 13th clean sheet in 21 matches this season, and their sixth on the bounce in the Premier League. It is that defensive solidity that is driving them towards their third title in four campaigns, although Guardiola will certainly not be getting carried away just yet.

Liverpool will hope to have Sadio Mane available again, but Klopp will be wary about reintroducing him to the starting XI too quickly. Fabinho is expected to be available again and could partner Jordan Henderson at centre-back, with neither Ben Davies nor Ozan Kabak likely to be handed his debut in such a big game.
Alisson missed the Brighton defeat with illness but should return between the sticks for the visit of the league leaders. Naby Keita and Diogo Jota are still a few weeks away from full fitness, while Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip are likely to miss the rest of the season with serious injuries.
City will have to make do without Kevin De Bruyne, who might not return from a thigh injury until next month. Nathan Ake is still on the treatment table, and Sergio Aguero “will need a few weeks to come back” after suffering from COVID-19, according to his manager.
Gabriel Jesus scored the opening goal against Burnley and will hope to again get the nod up front, although Guardiola has been known to tinker with his team selection and formation for this fixture in particular.
Kick-off is at 4.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Liverpool v Manchester 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
