How to watch the FA Cup in Australia

ViacomCBS picked up the rights to the FA Cup in Australia with all games from the quarter-finals onwards streamed live and exclusively via Paramount Plus.

If you've tracked this year's FA Cup competition the entire time you're likely confused why the broadcast has changed mid-tournament.

The reason for that was the FA Cup was always meant to be on Paramount Plus, but due to some tech issues it wasn't ready. That meant the opening rounds were available for free via Channel 10 and 10 play. You can see more information on streaming the FA Cup in Australia here.

Man City vs Liverpool FA Cup match preview

These 2 sides met on the weekend with the English Premier League title firmly on the line. Manchester City led the game twice, only to have Liverpool peg them back on both occasions to split the points.

With these 2 teams you can generally guarantee goals, momentum swings and highlights aplenty.

With both sides fighting for multiple titles, there won't be any easing off or selection cloak and daggers. What it will be is an epic battle and Liverpool's run of going unbeaten in 21 of 22 matches across all competitions since Christmas suggests they are the form side of world football.

We think they might sneak through to another final.
