How to stream Manchester City vs. Bournemouth

So, it looked like Manchester City was going to pull out a late victory against Spurs to keep its Premier League lead last week, but cruel, cruel video review came into play and nullified what appeared to be a Gabriel Jesus winner. The good news for City fans is that the club is still unbeaten in the very young season, with a chance to get another win on Sunday at Bournemouth.

Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Bournemouth vs. Manchester City, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Sling Orange + Blue

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Manchester City vs. Bournemouth: Why it matters

OK, so no one expected City to go 38-0-0 this season, but it is perhaps telling that it drew against the first big team it faced this season. There were certainly positives to take from the match: Kevin de Bruyne had two assists in the match, setting up Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero nicely. They also did get that Aguero goal after Spurs equalized via Erik Lamela. But then Lucas Moura scored on a corner in his very first action as a sub in the game, and City couldn’t find a winner. (Though, if not for Gabriel Jesus finding a stray hand on his stoppage-time shot, the Cityzens would have.) 

Bournemouth, meanwhile, beat Aston Villa 2-1 to move all the way up the table to seventh place. Joshua King converted a PK in the second minute, Harry Wilson added one in the 12th, and then they just hung on for the ride. It’ll be more of a test for Manchester City to come to Vitality Stadium than many might expect, but it also wouldn’t be surprising if City went full City and put up four or five goals.
