How to watch Arsenal vs Man City: Live stream the FA Cup semi-final online

Watch Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Man City live from Wembley anywhere in the world

The first FA Cup semi-final will see Mikel Arteta go up against his former mentor Pep Guardiola as Arsenal face Manchester City on Saturday, 18 July. The game will be broadcast live from London’s Wembley Stadium on BT Sport in the UK from 7pm, with kickoff at 7:45pm.

Both teams faced each other almost exactly a month ago in one of the first return games after the Premier League took a three-month break because of the coronavirus pandemic. In that game, hosts Manchester City won 3-0 with Raheem Sterling, Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden finding the back of the net. However, Arsenal were playing with 10-men for most of the game as defender David Luiz was sent off early in the second half.

Since then, Arsenal have won five Premier League games, lost two and drawn one. The Gunners can take consolation from the fact that their latest victory was against newly-crowned Premier League champions, Liverpool, who played with a full-strength side on Wednesday. Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 20 goals in the Premier League so far this season, and Arteta will be hoping the Gabanoese forward is wearing his shooting boots come Saturday.

Manchester City, meanwhile, have been one of the better sides since the league’s resumption last month. Since their victory against Arsenal almost a month ago, Guardiola’s side have lost just two matches, winning six – most by an average of three goals.

While Arsenal hold the FA Cup record with 13 wins, Man City are the defending FA Cup champions and have been one of the most dominant Premier League teams in the last decade. Last season, City won the domestic treble of the Premier League, EFL and FA Cup. With the Premier League out of their grasp, Guardiola will want to add the FA Cup to his domestic 2019-2020 cabinet this year, along with the EFL Cup that they won earlier this year.

The winner of Saturday’s game will face the winner of Manchester United vs Chelsea on Sunday in the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 1 August, 2020.

How to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Man City abroad: use a good VPN service

All of the aforementioned streaming services are geo-blocked, meaning you won’t be able to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Man City outside the country unless you use a reputable VPN service. Apart from keeping all your browsing activity completely anonymous, VPNs work by tricking your PC into thinking you’re in a different country.

In this way, you’ll be able to stream content through streaming services that may not be available in the country where you reside. While there are many free VPNs, they won’t let you unblock streaming services and other paid-for VPN services can be too slow or deny you access to servers abroad. With this in mind, we’ve chosen the two best VPN services that will let you access any of the streaming services from abroad.
