Tottenham-Man City live stream: How to watch EPL game online, on TV

The Tottenham-Machester City match appears uneven upon first glance, mainly with injuries.

Tottenham could have a bit of confidence heading into the match thanks to some injuries on the other side. Three key players didn't appear to travel with City on Sunday: Aymeric Laporte, John Stones and Benjamin Mendy appeared to be MIA.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola has been experimenting with an array of formations that have been proving to make fans nervous as he searches for what fits.

Tottenham is winless in six Premier League games against Man City.

Here's how to watch Sunday's Tottenham Hotspur-Manchester City match online and on TV.

Crystal Palace-Arsenal live stream: How to watch EPL game online, on TV

Arsenal will visit Crystal Palace on Saturday and hope to keep up their winning ways, but it'll be a test.

The Eagles have a few players sitting out in Andros Townsend and Jeff Schlupp who sustained injuries. Luka Milivojevic is suspended. 

Palace has an impressive defense allowing only 23 goals in 21 matches, but only scoring 19 goals themselves is not ideal, to say the least. 

They break even in their last six matches with a 2-2-2 record, so if anything, they could do this for that tiebreaker. 

The Eagles have a laundry list of injuries to worry about which could ultimately be the biggest hindrance for the club.

Here's how you can watch Crystal Palace-Arsenal:

Sacramento Republic FC to be next MLS expansion team after long chase

Sacramento Republic FC to be next MLS expansion team after long chase

After years of trying, Sacramento officially is getting a Major League Soccer team. 

Sacramento Republic FC will be the league's 29th team, MLS commissioner Don Garber announced in a Monday morning press conference alongside California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, and club investors Ron Burkle, Matt Alvarez and Kevin Nagle. Republic FC will join the league in 2022.

Monday's announcement was the culmination of a five-year effort from the city and investors to bring an MLS team to California's capital. Republic FC has played in the second-tier United Soccer League since 2014, but the club has had its eyes on MLS all along. But in 2017, MLS told Sacramento that its proposed ownership group "was not as well capitalized as the league wanted it to be," according to The Sacramento Bee. 

That changed when Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner and billionaire investor Ron Burkle purchased a controlling interest in Republic FC in January, giving Sacramento's MLS hopes a financial boost alongside business partner Matt Alvarez. In April, the MLS board of governors unanimously voted to expand the league to 30 teams, inviting Sacramento to bid. 

"Well, I'm not sure it's a relief," Garber told reporters in Sacramento on Sunday night (H/T KXTV's Lina Washington). "It's exciting. This is a city that we really think is on the rise. It's got a great vibe to it and a great energy. There's a lot of activity going on downtown. We love this idea of urban stadiums, and this is going to be one of them.

"The railyards project is something that even reverberates in our offices back in New York."

Shortly before the board of governors vote, the Sacramento City Council approved a non-binding term sheet with Republic FC, calling for the club to build a $252 million stadium on undeveloped land in the downtown railyards. The term sheet also called for the city to provide a $33 million incentive package, including $27 million to repay the club for building infrastructure around the stadium and $2.4 million in tax rebates.
