Watch Liverpool v Manchester City Capital One Cup Final online
If you’ve tried searching for a way to watch Liverpool v Manchester City online then I’m sure you, like me have come across tons of questionable websites. I actually fear even clicking on most of them because of bad experiences in the past of ending up with a computer filled with trojans and viruses.
Not to mention that those sketchy websites are highly illegal.
The great news is there is an official US online streaming service called Fubo.tv that offers a 24 hour free trial. The even better news is that they’ll be streaming Liverpool v Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final live online.
If you try to visit the Fubo website in the UK or elsewhere outside the US then you’ll be restricted to only a few channels of which none show any matches.
Fubo.tv without a VPN
The good news is for both Liverpool and Manchester City fans is there is a small tool called a VPN that allows you to appear as if you are in the US and unlock all the available channels on Fubo.tv.

Where to get a VPN for Fubo.tv
VPN services are available from tons of different companies, some are good, some are bad. To stream video from the US to yourself wherever you are you need a reliable and fast VPN service.

A good VPN service should cost you about £4-6 per month (US$6-10).
