For the twice-annual Premier League clashes, those games are on NBC platforms. That’s the Peacock streaming service, USA Network and the main NBC channel. In Spanish-language, games air on Telemundo and Universo. Liverpool-City, as a marquee game, would almost certainly be highlighted on TV and not always exclusive to streaming on Peacock.
Fubo has all the channels that air the Premier League, so it’s a good bet to see Liverpool-City EPL games.

While NBC holds the rights to the Premier League, there are other competitions that could see the two sides meet up.
If Liverpool and City get drawn together in the FA Cup or League Cup, those games will be shown on ESPN+. Most English FA Cup matches are streamed exclusively on ESPN+. However, later-round games such as the final may also be shown on the main ESPN/ESPN2 cable networks.
If a UEFA Champions League or Europa League matchup is in the cards, look to CBS/Paramount+. Every game is live on Paramount+, with select games simulcast on CBS affiliate channels. Univision/TUDN have UEFA games in Spanish.
Fubo (with access to Premier League games) is $74.99/month and offers a free 7-day trial.
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.
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.
