NBC has announced the commentators for this weekend’s Premier League matches that will be shown on television and Internet across the United States.

Here’s the line-up:

Chelsea vs Leicester, 10am, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra; Daniel Mann & Tony Gale
Crystal Palace vs West Ham, 10am, NBC Sports Live Extra and movie theaters; Tony Jones & Alan Curbishley
Southampton vs West Brom, 10am, NBC Sports Live Extra; Joe Speight & Barry Horne
Swansea vs Burnley, 10am, NBC Sports Live Extra; Gary Weaver & Andy Hinchcliffe
Everton vs Arsenal, 12:30pm, NBC and mun2 and NBC Sports Live Extra; Arlo White & Lee Dixon

Sunday, August 24:

Hull vs Stoke, 8:30am, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra; Jim Proudfoot & David Pleat
Spurs vs QPR, 8:30am, CNBC and NBC Sports Live Extra; Ian Darke & Clive Allen
Sunderland vs Manchester United, 11am, NBCSN and Telemundo and NBC Sports Live Extra; Jon Champion & Danny Mills

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.
