Manchester City vs Chelsea: How to watch the Carabao Cup Final for free online and live

Carabao Cup final is the one you would want to watch if you want to see Manchester City destroy Chelsea again.

The seemingly unbeatable and unstoppable Manchester City will take on Chelsea this coming Sunday in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Now, we are not going to take the risk of suggesting that Carabao Cup is anywhere near as prestigious as the Champions League or the UEFA Cup.

In fact, many football fans actually consider the Carabao Cup as the Mickey Mouse cup of the football world.

Of course, it gets an undue amount of attention because it is actually the first piece of silverware that is available for clubs to compete for and potentially their hands on.

Moreover, this cup essentially starts the process of clubs cementing their places for doing the quadruple in any given season.

And very few football fans would argue the fact that Manchester City has put itself in a pretty decent position to do that again.

One can also not ignore the dignity that Chelsea will be looking to regain after they got trashed 6-0 just a couple of weeks ago.

It doesn’t really matter which football club you support.

The problem is that most find it difficult to watch the final of the Carabao cup.

That is especially true if you do not have access to Sky.

Indeed, without Sky, there is really no way for anyone to legitimately watch Carabao Cup final.

You cannot watch the match and you definitely cannot watch the post-match celebrations.

A lot of online consumers have to resort to various sketchy and bad quality online streams in order to watch Carabo Cup final and other such games.

Needless to say, these streams are pretty much illegal.

Not only that, they also pose a significant risk to the health of your streaming device.

Users who are living outside the UK have it even worse because there are only a handful of online broadcasters who have bought the rights to show the match to people.

Even worse is the fact that a lot of them require users to have some sort of cable subscription.

Of course, there is an alternative for you to watch the Carabao Cup final.

We will tell you the exact stream you need to access in order to watch the match in a legal way.

Our guide will take care of those people who want to watch the Carabao final overseas.

With that out of the way, now we will show you the steps that you need to take in order to watch Carabao final in your home or in your office if you are that type of a guy.

How to watch the Carabao Cup final free and online

If you are living in the United States of America, you should know that the only real way you can watch the Carabao Cup Final is by tuning in to ESPN+ service.


However, if you try to do the same outside the United States of America, the service will simply block you.

With that said, it is also true that there is a bit of good news.

And that news is that you can make use of a VPN service in order to watch Carabo Cup final in the US.

With the help of a VPN service, you can watch Carabao Final as if you were in the United States of America.

We want to let you know that a VPN service not only unblocks services such as ESPN+ outside the US but also lots of other streaming services.

If you sign up for a good VPN service then you will give yourself all the opportunity in the world to watch the Carabao final live and online from any place in the world.

Most of you would already know that ESPN+ is a subscription-based service.

However, they are generous enough to give out a free and unconditional 7-day free trial for their service.

All that you have to do in order to avail the free trial is to sign up with the service and while signing up provide them with your debit or credit card.

It is alright if you cancel your subscription before the whole 7 days expire.

Even if you do so, the service will not charge you a single penny.

What does that mean for the end user?

That means that you can potentially watch the Carabao final for free.

Again, in order to unlock ESPN+ in your home country, you will require the services of a VPN.

And there is little doubt about the fact that signing up for a VPN service will cost you some money.

However, most good VPN service providers in the market available today come cheap.

And since mostly charge you in US dollars, you can get them even cheaper if you make money in British pounds.

The other thing that we want you to know is that, for most of the good things on the internet, you only need to sign up for a single month worth of VPN service.

Our experience tells us that it is enough for a single event.

We would love to recommend a single best VPN to watch Manchester City vs Chelsea.

But we can’t.


Because the competition is too tough.

And it is hard to pick one VPN from a bunch of good ones.

Therefore, we have written a separate guide for the best VPN service providers in the world right now for you.

Click here if you want to read up on that.

Most of the services that we recommend are not only high quality, they are also decently priced.

They are fast.

And that means you will not have to deal with buffering issues.


Most of all, all of the VPN service providers that you will find in our list are easy to understand and use.

Of course, you could go with the usual big names such as NordVPN and IPVanish but there are lots of other good VPN service providers that might be better for you based on your preferences and likes.

We suggest that you check out a couple of VPN service providers or more so that you get the best VPN that is best for you.

From that, you should also understand that when it comes to the top VPN service providers, they all offer the same service, the same features, and the same performance.

We are not saying that they are all the same.

But more or less, they provide the same quality of service and are only differentiated via the user’s preferences.

Now what you need to do here is to follow the exact steps that we have mentioned below in order to watch the full match Manchester City vs Chelsea Carabao Cup Final.

Here are the steps.

Step 1: First sign up for a good VPN service

As expected, this should always be your first step.

The VPN services that we recommend, just to take an example, like ExpressVPN and others are the ones you should probably stick to if you do not want to take any chances.

So sign up for one of the VPN service providers that we have mentioned in our guide.

Click here to read that guide.

And while doing so, keep in mind that it is always around 50 percent cheaper for users if their sign up for any VPN service’s yearly package.

With the yearly package, you can watch all the football matches along with all the sports.

However, if you only want to watch the final of the Carabao Cup then you only need a 1 month VPN package.

Step 2: Download the VPN app

Now, once you have managed to sign up for a given VPN service provider, what you need to do next is to download the official VPN app of the VPN service.

If you sign up for a great VPN service provider, then it should provide you with dedicated VPN apps for mobile devices.

You should be able to download the mobile version of VPN apps from places such as Google Play Store.

However, elite VPN service providers also provide the .apk files on their mobile devices.

By making use of a laptop or a computer machine, we feel that it is much easier to simply go to the official website of the VPN service that you have signed up with and then go to their Products section.

From there you should download the app.

Step 3: Connect to a VPN server that is located in the United States of America

Now you need to open up the VPN app that you have downloaded and hopefully installed and then you should log in with your new VPN account details.

After that, we need you to connect to a VPN server that is located in the United States of America.

The easiest way to do that is by pressing the option that says Choose Location which appears on the main screen of your VPN app.

And after doing that you should select the option that says the United States.

Then you need to press the button that says Connect if there is a need for it.

If you have signed up for a good VPN service provider then it should allow you to connect to a VPN server within 1 or 2 clicks.

Step 4: Sign up with a streaming service like ESPN+

Now that you have connected to a VPN server located in the United States of America you need to visit the official website of ESPN+.

When that is done, you need to press the button that says Start My 7 day free trial.

After that, it is all a matter of pressing the button that says Sign Up.

And then you need to enter the exact details as the page requires you to.

The next step is for you to press the button that says Sign Up.

After that, you have to enter some details from your credit card or your debit card (whichever you are using).

Remember, the service will not charge you initially for the 7-day free trial.

Then you need to input a zip code that belongs to the US.

There are many options for you to try out here.

You can use 94310.


Or 10013.

Or how about 90272.

Once done you need to press the button that says Start 7 day free trial.

Now you should see that the website takes around a couple of seconds before it accepts your payment details.

Then all you have to do is to press the button that says Get Started.

Step 5: Now you just need to enjoy your match.

Remember, that once the streaming service has accepted your payment details, you will have all that you need in order to watch Manchester City vs Chelsea live and online when they finally go head to head in the Carabao Cup final.

So log in before the kick-off.

Of course, you will first need to connect to the proper VPN server of any VPN service that we have mentioned in our guide.

Predictions for the Carabao Cup Final.

Look, we highly recommend that you stay away from things such as betting.

You may win one or two, but in a span of a year or so, you will definitely lose money.

There are people here on this earth that simply get annoyed when they go to a fruit machine but then end up losing a few bucks or quids.

These people should stay away from betting.

And so should everyone else.

However, the one thing that things such as betting do is tell the people who all the bookies feel is actually going to win the match.

That is of interest to people who like to watch football.

We’re not here to give you tips on how to go about predicting who will win a given football match.

What we will say is that you should enjoy the game regardless of who wins the match in the end.

What do we think?

We think that it is about time that Manchester City made its mark in the list of clubs with the most trophies in the EPL.

And it can do that by winning the Carabao Cup final game this Sunday.

Of course, Chelsea is not just going to sit there and allow them to do that.

Chelsea is, after all, a pretty strong team and even though they haven’t had the best of results lately, they are as likely as any other club to win the match and take the trophy home with them.

At the time of writing this report, Chelsea sat close to the 6th position in the league.

That isn’t great.

But it is not bad either.

Depending on how other teams play in the coming weeks, it is quite likely that Chelsea would have many opportunities to quickly jump back up to the fourth position in the league and even higher.

However, we would like to mention here is that Chelsea for all its greatness did have to go through the humiliation of 6-0 thrashing that Manchester City gave them a short time ago.

Now, we do not know if you watched the game or not.

And we would not recommend for you to do so right now via YouTube.

But what we will tell you is that, Manchester City ripped Chelsea apart in that game.

And we’re pretty sure that as good as a club like Manchester City has become, they are certainly not as good as a 6-0 on Chelsea each and every time they come up against them.


Chelsea did lose 6-0.

But do not get expect them to lose by that margin or something even close to it again.

Again, we would like to mention here that most of the experts are going with Manchester City this time around.

And we can understand why they would want to do so.

In other words, it is a horrible time to be a Chelsea supporter.

Manchester City currently has the heavier hand and there is nothing that Chelsea can do about it.

Almost all sporting sites that we follow have Manchester City winning against Chelsea.

And perhaps Manchester City deserves their first title of the year for all the performances that they have given us in this season alone.

How did Manchester City and Chelsea get here though?

Well, let’s take a look at some of the results that both had to manage before getting through to the final of the Carabao Cup final.

Manchester City had to play their semi-final against a team called Burton Albion.

No surprises that Manchester City managed to breeze through the semi-final and thrashed Burton Albion with a 9-0 scoreline in the first leg of the tie and then won again with a score of 1-0 on the day of the 2nd leg.

Now, readers should know that Manchester City had to work much harder in the quarterfinals.

They met Leicester City there.

And they needed the full 90 minutes plus some more in order to progress after a penalty shootout.

On the other hand, we had Chelsea.

Chelsea had to endure a tough semi-final against a team like Tottenham.

Tottenham, we know from their history, was never going to give Chelsea any easier time.

Both are intense rivals of each other.

Spurs actually managed to knock out the other team in the form of Arsenal.

They did that in the quarterfinals of the tournament.

However, Spurs could not continue the momentum and eventually lost to the great Chelsea on penalties when it finally came time to play in the semifinals.

Then, by the time the end of December came around, Chelsea actually beat Bournemouth in the Semi-Finals.

Chelsea actually bored everyone by winning 1-0.

Is there something new in this year’s Carabao Cup final?


And no.

If you have not managed to pay a lot of attention to this tournament or even to the knockout stages of this tournament, then we totally understand you.

After all, it is what you call the lesser cup.

But if you back and watch some replays, you should have noticed that the tournament did not have one extra-time throughout its group and knockout stages till the final.

What we mean to tell you here is that matches that do not give the viewers a result within 90 minutes of play went directly to the stage of a penalty shootout.

However, if we are talking about the final only then that rule is going to change to the normal stuff.

More specifically, if Manchester City and Chelsea play in the final for the full 90 minutes and are not able to beat each other, they would first have to play some extra time before moving on to penalties.

Moreover, VAR has had a good time operating on various games in the Premier League and we expect nothing less from it when it comes to the final of the Carabao Cup final.

All evidence indicates that VAR would still be used in the Premier League come next year.

And we think the management of the EPL for giving us the opportunity to see how the VAR works in such a high-paced football league.

What are you waiting for?

Let’s go.
