Relegation-threatened Peterborough beat promotion-chasing QPR to book this glamour tie against Pep Guardiola's formidable Manchester City side – and an unlikely win could give the Posh just the boost in confidence they need to help in their fight to stay up. Dan Butler remains absent for Peterborough, although Mark Beevers makes the bench along with Jonson Clarke-Harris, who was an unused substitute in their defeat to Hull at the weekend.

Man City have won 16 of the their last 18 FA Cup ties, the most recent being the 4-1 win over runaway Championship leaders Fulham at the start of February. The Cottagers took the lead that day, but goals from Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones and a Riyad Mahrez brace sent City through. Pep Guardiola has taken the opportunity to rotate his squad tonight, with Nathan Aké coming in at the back, Fernandinho getting a rare start in midfield, and Gabriel Jesus and Jack Grealish starting alongside Riyad Mahrez in attack.

Kick-off in this 5th round FA Cup fixture is tonight, Tuesday 1st March, at 7.15pm (GMT) and 2.15pm (ET). Read on for more details on how to watch a Peterborough vs Manchester City live stream, wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Peterborough vs Manchester City live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Peterborough vs Manchester City rights holders, you won't be able to access 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. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet, so you can access local streaming services from anywhere.

We recommend 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.
