Manchester City vs Leeds live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 3 October, 5.30pm BST

Managerial masterminds Marcelo Bielsa and Pep Guardiola go head-to-head for the first time in English football on Saturday when Leeds welcome Manchester City to Elland Road. 

The Lilywhites have been worth the wait so far on their return to the Premier League after 16 years away, with 15 goals being scored in their three matches so far. 

And Bielsa will chase an upset after overseeing back-to-back victories and watching Guardiola’s side collapse to a 5-2 defeat at Leicester last weekend.

There are no injury issues in the Leeds squad, but they face one selection blow as on-loan midfielder Jack Harrison can’t face his parent club.

Ezgjan Alioski appears set to step into the starting line-up, with Pablo Hernandez still facing more time on the sidelines.

Manchester City splashed a reported £65 million on Benfica centre-back Ruben Dias during the week, and the Portugal international could go straight into Guardiola’s team as he looks to tighten up a leaky defence.

Fellow defender Aymeric Laporte is also in contention to start for the first time this season, having recovered from Covid-19.

But Oleksandr Zinchenko, Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan are still unavailable. 

These two sides haven’t faced each other in a competitive fixture since a 4-0 FA Cup victory for City in 2013, while the last time they faced off at Elland Road Leeds ran out 2-1 winners in March 2004. 

With eight, Leeds have equalled the record set by Bolton in 2001 for the most goals scored by a promoted team after three games. Five of them have come from set pieces, the most in the division. 

City’s defeat to Leicester marked the first time a team managed by Guardiola had conceded five goals in a single game, and the first time City had done so in 12 years. 

The Spaniard has reason to be confident though, as he is undefeated in three previous head-to-heads with Bielsa, winning twice when his Barcelona faced the Argentinian’s Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.

AND Premier League live stream best VPN: how to watch every game from anywhere in the world

Use a VPN to watch a Manchester City vs Leeds 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 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal. 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:
