EPL Commentators on NBC Sports: Dec. 2, 2016


First-place Chelsea visit third-place Manchester City this Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, highlighting NBC Sports Group’s Premier League coverage this weekend. All top-five Premier League teams will be featured on NBC or NBCSN this week.

The Blues enter the match with seven consecutive Premier League wins, most recently defeating 5th-place Tottenham 2-1. Spurs’ goal in that match was the first conceded by Chelsea in six league matches. City are unbeaten in six league matches, and are coming off a 2-1 win against Burnley on Saturday. Sergio Aguero scored both goals in the match, and is now tied with Chelsea’s Diego Costa as joint-top scorers in the Premier League (10 goals). Steve Bower calls the match, joined by Graeme Le Saux at Etihad Stadium. Coverage begins at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN.

Saturday’s Premier League coverage continues at 10 a.m. ET with Tottenham v. Swansea City on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, and Crystal Palace v. Southampton on CNBC. The Swans grabbed their first win under new American manager Bob Bradley this Saturday, the club’s first win since the opening weekend of the Premier League season. The dramatic 5-4 victory over Crystal Palace featured two goals in stoppage time from Swansea’s Fernando Llorente.

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.

Premier League coverage continues this Sunday, December 4, at 7:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live, followed by Bournemouth v. second-place Liverpool. Liverpool, tied on points with third-place Manchester City and just one point behind leaders Chelsea, must cope without Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who is sidelined with an ankle injury.

Voiced by BBC presenter and former English footballer Gary Lineker, this week’s episode features the players’ recovery after their hard-fought win against Leicester City, discusses the club’s one-of-a-kind internship program, and looks back on one of the most memorable moments in the team’s history. The episode will also include a tour of the club’s training facilities, given by defender Adrian Mariappa. Click here for more information on the entire series.
