Peacock does hold Premier League rights, however most big matches like Man City vs Liverpool are very likely to be featured on traditional TV. Usually, those games are not available on Peacock. The exception to this is Saturday’s 12:30 PM ET games on NBC – those are often simulcast on Peacock as well as TV.

ESPN+, for FA Cup and League Cup games, is $10.99/month, or $109.99 annually. The Disney Bundle is also available, which pairs ESPN+ with Disney+ and Hulu, adding a ton more content for $14.99/month.

History of the Liverpool vs Man City rivalry

The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester goes beyond soccer. It dates back to the Industrial Revolution era when manufacturing and shipping were massive industries in both cities.

However, this did not necessarily translate to Liverpool vs. Manchester City games. The Reds’ more traditional Mancunian rivals have historically been Manchester United. And Liverpool had far more success in terms of trophies, both domestically and internationally, than City.

But the 2008 takeover of City by Abu Dhabi United Group shook up the status quo in the English game. Since then, City have been more dominant on the field than Liverpool, heightening the importance of matchups between the two.

In 2014, City edged out Liverpool for the EPL title by just two points on the final day of the season. They’d meet in the League Cup Final in 2016 (City won on penalties), and in the 2018 Champions League, Liverpool trounced City 5-1 on aggregate in the quarterfinals. Twice more City won the EPL title, with Liverpool finishing in second, on the final day of the season – in 2019 and 2022.

Thanks to the modern business of the global game, the Liverpool-City rivalry extends to, of all places, Major League Baseball. City Football Group co-owns MLS’s New York City FC with the New York Yankees (who also host the club at Yankee Stadium). Meanwhile, Fenway Sports Group owns both Liverpool FC and the Yankee’s biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox.
