Manchester City v Aston Villa live stream: how to watch the Premier League wherever you are in the world

Manchester City v Aston Villa live stream

Manchester City v Aston Villa live stream, BT Sport, Wednesday 20 January, 6.00pm GMT

Aston Villa are the next team in Manchester City’s crosshairs in the Citizens' march towards the top of the Premier League table.

Pep Guardiola’s side have been in unstoppable form of late, winning eight consecutive games in all competitions and scoring 20 goals in that time.

City haven’t lost since their 2-0 defeat at Tottenham on 21 November, an unbeaten run of 15 games, nine of which have been in the Premier League.

Latest odds from Grosvenor Sports where new customers can bet £10 and get £20 in Free Bets:

Man City win: 1/4

Draw: 27/5

Aston Villa win: 21/2

They showed no signs of slowing down with a 4-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace last time out, a result that moved the Citizens into second place, two points off top with a game in hand over leaders Manchester United.

Villa, meanwhile, travel to the Etihad after back-to-back defeats against United in the league and Liverpool in the FA Cup.

It has been a tough run of fixtures for Dean Smith’s side, who drew 1-1 at Chelsea before those losses, but they are enjoying a fine season and currently occupy 10th place.

That position is a little misleading, though, as Villa have three games in hand over seven of the teams above them, and two games in hand over the remaining two – City and Everton.

Kick-off is at 6.00pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Manchester City v Aston Villa 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:
