In what is traditionally one of the biggest fixtures of the season, Manchester United faces its first massive test of the season after a relatively easy schedule during the beginning of the season. Its opponent, Chelsea, couldn’t be any stronger — currently undefeated and seemingly invincible.

For viewers in the United States, the Noon ET kickoff will be shown live on free-to-air NBC.

Here’s today’s TV schedule for viewers/readers in the United States:
