Swansea v Manchester City live stream, BT Sport, Wednesday 10 February, 5.30pm GMT

Manchester City will be looking to extend their winning run when they face Swansea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s side thumped Liverpool (opens in new tab) 4-1 on Sunday to move five points clear of the chasing pack in the Premier League title race. City (opens in new tab) also have a game in hand on most of the teams below them, which makes them strong favourites to finish in first place for the third time in four seasons. City are also targeting success on other domestic fronts, having already booked their place in the League Cup final and now seeking a spot in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Victory at the Liberty Stadium  would be their 15th on the bounce in all competitions.

Overcoming Swansea on their own patch will not be straightforward, though, even if Steve Cooper’s side are in the Championship. The Swans beat Norwich 2-0 last time out to move to within two points of top spot in the second tier. They have now won six of their last seven games between Championship and FA Cup, and their defensive solidity could force the visitors to south Wales to be patient on Wednesday night.

Manchester City will again be unable to call upon the services of Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne, although Guardiola hopes to have both players available again in the coming weeks. 

Nathan Ake is the only other absentee, and fringe members of the squad such as Ferran Torres, Zack Steffen, Tommy Doyle, Eric Garcia and Benjamin Mendy will hope to start. Guardiola will make his team selection with an eye on Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Tottenham (opens in new tab).

Swansea will have to make do without Liam Cullen, who is expected to miss the rest of the season with an ankle problem. The long-serving Wayne Routledge, who has made close to 300 appearances during a decade at the club, is also out. Cooper is likely to name a strong team in a bid to maintain Swansea’s positive momentum as the business end of the campaign gets closer.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Swansea v Manchester City live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
