How to watch a Manchester derby live stream from anywhere on Earth

Can United cause an upset at City? The first Manchester derby of the Premier League season is here and yours to stream live

The first derby weekend is here for the city of Manchester in the 2018/19 Premier League. Man City vs Man United is always a hot fixture for dedicated fans and neutrals alike, but this one is looking particularly tasty. And we'll tell you how to watch – even if you're outside the UK.

To the hosts first of all. The current Premier League champions have carried their dominant form of their title winning season into this one. Even with Kevin De Bruyne sidelined through injury, Manchester City boast a ridiculously star-studded first eleven: Aguero, Sterling, Silva (x2), Mahrez, Sane, Ederson. Need we go on. And their championship defence has gone to plan thus far, without a single league loss to their name.

Before last Wednesday most people would have agreed that Manchester United's season so far has been a bit of a bust. But that last minute win against Juventus and Mourinho's post-match antics suggest a turning of the tide. Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini were the unlikely heroes that night, but the Red Devils will need the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku to step up to the plate if they want to embarass their cross-town enemies.

The action takes place today at the Etihad Stadium, with kick-off at 4.30pm GMT (so 5.30pm in mainland Europe, 11.30am ET, 9.30am PT). This one's on Sky in the UK, and we'll let you know how to live stream Man City vs Man United in the Premier League from absolutely anywhere.
