Manchester City are on the brink of Premier League glory as they welcome Chelsea to the Etihad. Don't miss a moment with our Man City vs Chelsea live stream guide.

City could secure their seventh English top-flight title with a win today. With local rivals Manchester United the only side that can catch them, the Citizens could have already won the league had United failed to beat Liverpool last weekend. That game was postponed after fan protests meaning the chance to wrap up the title race is now in City's hands.

Today's game is equally important to visitors Chelsea who are chasing down a top-four finish in order to qualify for next season's Champions League.

In mid-week, both of the teams found safe passage to this season's Champions League final, setting up a second all-English final in three years.

Man City denied French champions PSG a second successive final appearance with a Riyad Mahrez brace wrapping up a 4-1 aggregate win.

After a 1-1 away leg, Chelsea used home advantage to see off the Champions League's most successful side Real Madrid, with Timo Werner and Mason Mount finding the back of the net.

There's plenty to play for on both sides today. Read on to find out how to watch a Man City vs Chelsea live stream, no matter where you are in the world.
