Man City kick off their Premier League title defence against Spurs today at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The breaking news is  that Harry Kane is not in the Spurs squad. "He needs to keep on working until he's ready to help the team," Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo told Sky Sports

Canadian soccer fans can stream Spurs vs Man City free on DAZN with this 30-day free trial. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're stuck outside Canada. Spurs vs Man City will be exclusive to Sky Sports in the UK, and NBCSN in the US. Make sure you know how to get a Spurs vs Man City live stream from anywhere in the world.

Spurs vs Man City live stream

Date: Sunday 15th Aug 2021

Kick off: 4.30pm BST / 11.30pm ET

Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Canada stream: DAZN (30-day free trial)

Watch anywhere: Try ExpressVPN risk-free

US stream: Sling TV ($10 initial offer)

UK stream: Now (£10/month)

AUS stream: Optus Sport ($15/month)

The team news is in and Grealish, Torres, and Sterling start for Manchester City. Stones and Walker are on the bench. Lucas, Son and Lloris start for a Kane-less Tottenham Hotspur. 

Manchester City splashed out £100m for Jack Grealish last month, now the five-time Premier League champions are said to be in hot pursuit of Harry Kane, one of the world's best strikers. Want-away Kane is expected to show up at the Etihad any minute now, which could make Sunday's blockbuster clash pretty awkward.

"He’s a player for Tottenham and if they don’t want to negotiate then it’s finished," said Guardiola. "If they are open to negotiation… but Man City and all the clubs in the world want to sign him."

Man City will be eager to get their Premier League 2021/22 campaign off to a
winning start after a late Kelechi Iheanacho penalty saw them lose 1-0 to Leicester in the Community Shield last weekend. 

However, a quick glance at the match stats reveals that City have lost 15 Premier League Matches against Spurs, including a 2-0 defeat in this fixture last season. That said, Manchester City have won their first league match of the season in each of their last ten Premier League campaigns.

Watch a Spurs vs Man City live stream for free

Premier League football fans in Canada can watch every Premier League game – including Spurs vs Man City – live on DAZN.  

A subscription to the streaming service costs $20 a month or $150 a year. Better yet, DAZN Canada offers a 30-day free trial, so you can watch for free.

Of course, the DAZN free trial is only available within Canada so be sure to use a VPN if you're stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it's reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. 

Watch a Spurs vs Man City live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Spurs vs Man City live stream 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. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. 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.

USA: watch a Spurs vs Man City live stream

Spurs vs Man City will be shown live on NBC Sports Network in the US. Coverage begins at 11am ET  with commentary from Arlo White, Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux.

Don't have cable? Sling TV carries NBC Sports Network, as well as NBC and CNBC. You'll want the Sling Blue package, which is on special offer right now. Your first month is $10 (saving you $25), then it's $35 a month thereafter. There's no contract, so you can cancel anytime.

Of course, Sling TV is only available within the United States. So if you're away from home, you'll need to use a VPN to access the service without being blocked. We recommend ExpressVPN as it comes with a risk-free 30-days money-back guarantee.

Another good option is Fubo TV. The respected streaming service carries NBC and NBC Sports Network. At $65 a month it's not cheap but you do get access to almost every premium channel you can think off, including a huge amount of live sports.

UK: watch a Spurs vs Man City live stream

Sky Sports has the exclusive rights to show Spurs vs Man City live in the UK. Kick off is this Sunday, 15th August, at 4.30pm BST.

If you're in Australia, local streaming service Optus Sport will provide live coverage of the Premier League 2021/22 – including Sunday's Spurs vs Man City clash – for just AU$14.99 per month or AU$68 a month.

Stuck outside Oz at the moment? Don't forget that you can use a VPN to access a live stream without being blocked.

Premier League 2021/22 live stream: what TV channel, how to watch the football online

Let's not forget the wireless. Both the BBC and talkSPORT have rights to broadcast live football matches, with around 260 being aired over the season.

BBC gets first dibs on matches played from 3pm on Saturdays, the prime time slot, in addition to commentary rights to broadcast radio coverage on Fridays, Mondays, and two Sunday slots.

You can listen to live commentary of selected games on BBC 5Live via the BBC Sport website or via Freeview, Freesat, Sky or Virgin Media.

talkSPORT is the only commercial radio broadcaster with live Premier League football rights. It has the audio rights to three time slots on Saturdays, including matches played at 12.30pm, 3pm and 5.30pm, plus exclusive rights for all matches scheduled to kick-off at 12pm on Sundays.

When can you watch Match of the Day online and on iPlayer?

Premier League 2021/22 live stream: what TV channel, how to watch the football online

Match of the Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match of the Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

Match of the Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.

The show won't be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match of the Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it's broadcast.

You can download Match of the Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match of the Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
