Ready for kickoff? There's less than an hour to go now so you need to get a move on. Let's help you get ready by tracking down all the best options to watch an Aston Villa vs Man City live stream. Watching the EFL Carabao Cup Final online is easier than you think and we've got you covered, wherever you are in the world.

City might not be winning the Premier League this season, even with Liverpool picking up their first league defeat of the season last night, but they're in buoyant form after coming from behind to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League earlier this week. They're the hot favorites to pick up their fifth League Cup win in seven seasons.

Aston Villa are four points off the very bottom of the Premier League though and are coming into the match on a string of three defeats in a row. So you can bet they'll be going all out to give their fans something to cheer about and boost morale to climb out of the relegation zone before the season wraps up in a few months. 

Whichever side you're on, the clash looks set to be one to remember, with both teams having so much to win and lose over those 90 minutes - unless we get extra time that is. If you don't want to miss a single second of it, you're going to need to know the best EFL Cup Final live stream options. We're running through kickoff and coverage times as well as the best way to catch an Aston Villa vs Man City live stream this weekend.
