Aston Villa v Manchester City live stream, Sky Sports, Wednesday 21 April, 8.15pm BST

Manchester City (opens in new tab) can take another step towards the Premier League title when they travel to Aston Villa (opens in new tab) on Wednesday.  

The Citizens’ dreams of a quadruple season ended on Saturday when they were knocked out by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals. 

Pep Guardiola’s side have already secured a place in the Champions League semi-finals against PSG, while they face Tottenham on Sunday in the League Cup final.

They need to focus on the bread and butter of domestic football for now, though, after a recent dip in form.

City lost 2-1 to Leeds in their last league outing and now have two defeats in their last three games including the Chelsea setback.

Villa have hit a poor run of form too, but their hopes of a top-half finish remain within reach. 

European qualification looks unlikely now, with the Birmingham club sitting in 11th place with one win in their last six league games. 

But Leeds, Arsenal and Everton are within their reach and Villa have more games remaining on their fixture schedule than those clubs.

Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan were on target in a 2-0 win for City when the two sides met at the Etihad in January.

Kick-off is at 8.15pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab) in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch an Aston Villa 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 (opens in new tab) (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 (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

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.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
