It’s a blockbuster Premier League showdown as sharp-shooting strikers Harry Kane and Erling Haaland face off in North London.
Fifth-placed Spurs welcome second-placed Man City to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday in what looks set to be a thrilling match to round off a weekend of English Premier League football. City boss Pep Guardiola’s team will be hoping for more of the same as they come into this match brimming with confidence following their 1-0 win in the FA Cup against league leaders Arsenal.
Tottenham also eased their way through to the next round of the competition after a professional 3-0 win away at Preston North End last weekend, but will be without boss Antonio Conte for this crucial game, with the Italian recuperating after undergoing surgery to remove his gallbladder earlier this week.
The match looks set to provide a tantalizing battle between two strikers at the top of their game, as Spurs skipper Harry Kane lines up against City’s Erling Haaland.
Haaland currently leads the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with 25 goals so far this term, while Tottenham hitman Kane is second on 16 and still looking to beat Jimmy Greaves’ all-time Spurs record.
Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

How to watch the Spurs vs. Man City game online from anywhere using a VPN
If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Quick tips for streaming the Premier League using a VPN
With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming EPL matches may vary.
If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location.
And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
