Here’s the line-up:

Monday, August 25:

Manchester City vs Liverpool, 3pm, NBCSN and mun2 and NBC Sports Live Extra; Arlo White & Graeme Le Saux

Two days after playing against Arsenal, Tim Howard makes his season broadcast debut in the studio with NBC Sports Group joining Lee Dixon and ITV Sport’s Matt Smith at the Manchester City-Liverpool match for a live on-site studio appearance for Premier League Live at 2 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

It’ll be Smith’s debut on US television, so it’ll be interesting to see how he does in place of Gary Lineker who’s presumably unavailable due to other commitments. Smith will be an unfamiliar face to many soccer fans in the United States, except for the hardcore viewers who may have seem him on ITV in the past.
