EPL Commentators on NBC: Sept. 9, 2016

manchester-derby

Live Premier League match coverage continues this week with a blockbuster Manchester Derby, as unbeaten clubs Manchester United and Manchester City face off this Saturday, September 10, at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and TELEMUNDO. For the second time in league history, both Manchester City and Manchester United have won their first three league games in the same season, the first being the 2011-12 season, when Manchester City won the Premier League title and Manchester United finished second (on a goal difference tiebreaker).

This season’s first installment of the Manchester Derby is one of the most anticipated fixtures of the year as both clubs have new managers in charge, with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. The two world-class managers have a heated history from their time overlapping in Spain (2010-2012), where Mourinho led Real Madrid while Guardiola was in charge of archrivals Barcelona. Now, the managerial foes are in the same city, bringing an extra layer of intrigue to the always-electric Manchester Derby. Coverage begins Saturday at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN.

NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League play-by-play commentator Arlo White calls the match, joined by Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux. Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Live, joined by former Major League Soccer and U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Kyle Martino and former Jamaican National Team Player Robbie Earle.

Live Premier League coverage continues Saturday at 10 a.m. ET with Arsenal v. Southampton on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, and Stoke City v. Tottenham on CNBC. All matches not on NBCSN or CNBC in the Saturday 10 a.m. ET television window will be available on Premier League Extra Time, a bonus television package available to MVPDs at no extra cost for customers who receive NBCSN. In addition, beginning this Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET, the Premier League’s new Goal Rush product will be featured on Premier League Extra Time as well as via the NBC Sports app and on NBCSports.com. Goal Rush will provide the most compelling action in real time and on replay so viewers won’t miss a single score or key play. Premier League host John Dykes will host the program, which will focus on Arsenal v. Southampton this week, and feature live look-ins on action at all the grounds.

Saturday’s live Premier League match coverage wraps up with Liverpool v. Leicester City, at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, followed by a live Goal Zone at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Coverage on Sunday, September 11, begins at 10 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN followed by Swansea City v. Chelsea at 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN and TELEMUNDO. This week’s live match coverage wraps up on Monday, September 12, at 2 p.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN followed by Sunderland v. Everton at 3 p.m. ET.
