How to watch Man City vs Liverpool for free: FA Cup semi-final TV and live stream info

How to watch Man City vs Liverpool for free! The FA Cup semi-final takes place on Saturday as City and Liverpool meet again. Here’s how to watch the latest Klopp vs Pep battle.

We’ve barely caught our breath after last weekend’s pulsating league game between these two massive rivals. Now we have to do it all over again, as Man City and Liverpool meet again in the first FA Cup semi-final on Saturday afternoon.

The teams couldn’t be separated in a 2-2 draw last time out, but there has to be a winner on Saturday with extra time and penalties in prospect and a spot in the FA Cup Final on the line.

City enter the game reeling from a victorious, but brutal trip to Atletico Madrid in midweek and are contending with injuries to key players like Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne. Liverpool were able to rest and rotate many of the starting XI against Benfica at Anfield on the same night.

In theory the Reds should go into the game mentally and physically fresher, but City certainly had the better of the game last Sunday. It’s anyone’s ballgame.

Here’s how to watch Man City vs Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
