How to watch Man City vs Arsenal: Live stream, channel guide and free audio

How to watch Man City vs Arsenal: The game being billed as the Premier League title decider is finally here. Here’s how to watch City vs Arsenal live online in the UK.

During every title race, sometimes towards the back end of the season, the two teams in contention tend to meet in a game that can determine the likely direction of the coveted Premier League trophy.

That game is tonight. Manchester City host Arsenal with the title race on a knife edge. The inevitable City march towards a third straight title is underway and, thus far, Arsenal have struggled to withstand the onslaught.

The Gunners have drawn their last three games 2-2, 2-2, and 3-3 respectively and a big lead at the top of the table is now down to five points, with City having two games in hand.

The title race is still in Arsenal’s hands, but only if they win tonight. Any other result would mean City could win out to claim the title and there’d be nothing Arsenal could do about it.

As a Liverpool fan writing this guide, it’s a familiar story and there’s a modicum of sympathy for Arsenal’s plight and the inevitability of the next few weeks of going up against a heavily funded nation state that allegedly broke over 100 Premier Leaguer financial rules on the way to dominating the division.

That’s another story for another time though. Tonight’s all about the football and Arsenal will need the biggest performance of the season to keep a rampant City at bay. Something tells me there may be a Gabriel Jesus moment in this game as the former Man City man returns to the Etihad with Arsenal.

Here’s how to watch Man City vs Arsenal on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
