Man City vs Newcastle live stream: Can you watch for free?

Seeking to become the first team in FA Cup history to reach the semifinals in six straight years, Manchester City take on Newcastle at Etihad Stadium today. The Citizens are undoubtedly favorites to advance, but as we saw during the League Cup back in September, Eddie Howe’s side can’t be overlooked.

The match is kicking off momentarily, at 1:30 p.m. ET, and will stream exclusively on ESPN+. That means there’s no way to watch it completely, but the value of ESPN+ is immeasurable for anyone at all interested in the FA Cup.
