Manchester City vs Bournemouth live stream: TV schedule, team news, kick-off time and more


Freshly promoted Bournemouth came hot out of the blocks to comfortably defeat Villa last weekend, but this Saturday’s clash with champions Manchester City is likely to be a slightly different story.

Both City and Bournemouth opened their accounts with 2-0 victories last weekend, but by far the most talked-about point is the sheer lethality of the Sky Blues’ new target man Erling Haaland. Despite some teething issues and some necessary work to fit into playmaker Kevin De Bruyne’s style, securing a brace in his Premier League debut will no doubt strike fear into those yet to face him.

Bournemouth will also be on a high. Their win against Villa should give Scott Parker’s men some well-deserved confidence that they really can kick it with the big boys, with Kieffer Moore certainly proving himself worthy with a towering header to secure the victory. While today’s outing to the Etihad may well be an exercise in damage control, there’s the potential for some very interesting shake-ups indeed.

Kick-off is at 3pm BST (10am ET) this afternoon. Read on to find out on how to watch a Manchester City vs Bournemouth live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.

Of course, Sling and FuboTV are only available within the States so be sure to use a VPN(opens in new tab) if you’re a US subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it’s reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch a Manchester City vs Bournemouth live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Manchester City vs Bournemouth live stream rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are easy to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
