Manchester City may need to win all six of their remaining games to retain their Premier League title, with Liverpool just a point behind them in second place. 

Their form has been a tad patchy in recent weeks, with two draws in their last five matches (granted one of these was against Liverpool), but Pep Guardiola’s men cannot afford any slip-ups here.  

Meanwhile, Watford are facing a very different sort of challenge. They're currently languishing in the relegation zone and in danger of being cut adrift. A win here seems unlikely, but a point would certainly help. 

Here's how they line up:

Manchester City: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, Rodri, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Sterling, Grealish, Jesus.

Watford: Foster, Ngakia, Samir, Kabasele, Kamara, Sissoko, Cleverley, Louza, Sarr, Dennis, King

How to watch the Manchester City vs Watford live stream wherever you are

The Manchester City vs Watford live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to NBCSN, Peacock or another service and watch the game.
