What TV channel is Manchester City vs Liverpool on? Kick-off time, TV info and stream details

Manchester City will look to put a huge dent in their closest rivals’ title pursuit this Sunday.

Manchester City host Liverpool on Sunday, in what could be a title-defining match between England’s top two clubs.

The hosts have been in first place since December and at one stage held a 12-point gap on Jurgen Klopp’s men.

But a few slip-ups in recent weeks, combined with Liverpool taking maximum points from their games in hand, and embarking on an 11-match winning run, has seen that lead cut to just a single point.

It’s a deficit that would be overturned with an away win on Sunday, however a victory for the home side will see City move four points clear at the league’s summit.

It’s why Sunday’s game is so huge, and it really is a must-see occasion that could determine where the title ultimately ends up this season.

When and where is the match?

The match takes place at the Etihad stadium and kicks off at 4.30pm, on Sunday 10 April.

Is Man City vs Liverpool on TV?

There’s no way this game wasn’t going to be selected as one of TV choices by the UK broadcasters, and it’s Sky Sports who will show the meeting between Pep Guardiola’s men and the Merseysiders.

The match will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, and will be broadcast after Norwich City vs Burnley. The pre-match build-up will most likely begin ahead of the relegation battle at Carrow Road, but the main analysis starts on Sky at 4pm.

Highlights will be shown after the game via the Sky Sports & Premier League YouTube channels, while both clubs’ websites will bring the main bits of action later in the evening.

Is Man City vs Liverpool available on live stream or PPV?

The game can be live streamed for Sky customers via the Sky Sports app, while those without a subscription can purchase a one-day NOW TV pass for £11.98, which provides access to all Sky Sports channels for 24 hours.

Who is the match referee?

Anthony Taylor is set to be the man in the middle on Sunday, which has caused no shortage of comment on social media given the 43-year-old is from Greater Manchester.

Taylor will be assisted by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, while Andre Marriner is the fourth official at the Etihad.

Paul Tierney is, somewhat controversially, in charge of VAR for the match. The referee is certainly not the preferred choice of Klopp, who was heard on camera saying to the official earlier this season: “I have no problems with other referees, only you.”

However, Tierney gave Liverpool a helping hand when the sides last met in the league, as he failed to give James Milner a clear second yellow for his challenge on Bernardo Silva.
