Man City v Sheffield United live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 30 January, 3pm GMT
Manchester City will be looking to strengthen their grip on top spot of the Premier League when they face Sheffield United on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola’s side thrashed West Brom 5-0 in midweek to climb to the summit of the standings ahead of rivals Manchester United. City have been in magnificent form in recent weeks, winning each of their last seven Premier League matches to cement themselves as title favourites.
Somewhat surprisingly, City’s success so far this season has been built on a rock-solid backline: Tuesday’s clean sheet at The Hawthorns was their fourth on the bounce, and no team in the division has conceded as few goals as their 13. Pleasingly for Guardiola, his team also seem to have rediscovered their attacking verve of late, hitting four goals past Crystal Palace just over a week before the demolition of West Brom. City are in terrific shape right now, even without Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne.
Sheffield United recorded one of the biggest upsets of the season when they beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday. It was a huge win for Chris Wilder’s side, and victory at the Etihad Stadium would come as an even bigger shock. Despite their success in midweek, the Blades remain 10 points adrift of safety and will require an extraordinary upturn in form to preserve their Premier League status this season.
De Bruyne faces a few weeks on the sidelines with a muscular problem, but Aguero could return to the matchday squad after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. Aymeric Laporte is fit and available again, but Nathan Ake is still on the treatment table. Ilkay Gundogan will be looking to continue his fine goalscoring form, with the midfielder having found the net seven times in his last eight top-flight outings.
Kick-off is at 3pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Man City v Sheffield United 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:
