Manchester City travel to the King Power Stadium today to lock horns with Leicester. Pep Guardiola's table-toppers are in with a chance of the quadruple and will want to extend their 15-point advantage. The Foxes, meanwhile could do with a result to hold off the chasing pack in the hunt for a Champions League spots. Kick-off is today 17.30 BST (12.30 ET). 

The team news is in and Ben Maddison is on the bench as he continues his recovery. Ayoze Perez starts behind Iheanacho and Vardy as Leicester line up with a back three. Both Aguero and Jesus make the XI for City with de Bruyne and Mahrez completing the attack. Make sure you know how to watch a Leicester City vs Man City live stream in 4K and wherever you are.

City might be the Premier League leaders and in possession of a precious double-digit lead over second place Man United, but let's not forget that Leicester have already beaten Guardiola's men once this season. On top of that, the Foxes go into this Easter clash on the back of an impressive 3-1 win over United in the FA Cup.

Of course, the Citizens have been on an FA Cup run of their own, beating Everton 2-0 to progress to the semis a couple of weeks ago. As for City's Premier League form, it's been nothing less than spectacular: three losses out of 30 matches played this season (not to mention that record-breaking run of 21 consecutive wins).

City's embarrassment of riches upfront will no doubt stand them in good stead but the visitors will need to be wary of the home side.

The stunning Jamie Vardy hat-trick that helped Foxes to a shock 5-2 win over City at the Etihad last September will no doubt be fresh in Guardiola's mind. That being said, Leicester have won just 31 out of their 121 competitive clashes with City.

It's a 17.30 BST (12.30pm ET) kick-off at the King Power Stadium today. UK viewers can watch in 4K on Sky Sports, US viewers can catch the action on NBCSN and lucky football fans in Australia can subscribe to Optus Sport to catch all of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League matches for just AU$14.99/month.

Watch Leicester City vs Man City live stream abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch Leicester City vs Man City.

When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access – in this case, Australia. Then navigate to Optus.

You'll be able to continue using ExpressVPN from then on to watch anything else on Optus and a host of other services which may also otherwise block you.
