NBC Sports Group presents 20 Premier League matches in five days, highlighted by fourth-place Manchester City visiting last season’s champions, Leicester City, this Saturday, Dec. 10, at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC, and a triple-header of matches on NBCSN this Sunday, Dec. 11, beginning at 7 a.m. ET.

This week’s Premier League coverage begins Saturday at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Live, followed by Watford v. Everton at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN. Coverage continues Saturday at 10 a.m. ET when second-place Arsenal host Stoke City on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, and Swansea City host Sunderland on CNBC. Arsenal are coming off a 5-1 win over West Ham United, which featured a hat trick from the Premier League’s joint-leading scorer, Alexis Sanchez (11 goals). The Gunners are on a 13-match unbeaten streak in the league, having not lost since their opening game of the Premier League season.

Saturday’s coverage continues at 12:30 p.m. ET when Leicester City host Manchester City on NBC and NBC UNIVERSO. Manchester City are looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Chelsea, which snapped their six-match league unbeaten streak. NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls the match, joined by analyst Graeme Le Saux at King Power Stadium.

Coverage on Sunday begins at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live, followed by first-place Chelsea v. West Bromwich Albion at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN. The Blues, who are on an eight-match Premier League winning streak, are led by the league’s joint-leading scorer Diego Costa (11 goals). Sunday’s triple-header continues when sixth-place Manchester United host fifth-place Tottenham at 9:15 a.m. ET on NBCSN and TELEMUNDO. The Red Devils have won only once in their last eight league matches, and are in search of a much-needed three points. Tottenham are coming off a 5-0 win over Swansea City, with two goals each from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen. White calls the match, joined by Le Saux and Lee Dixon at Old Trafford.

Weekend coverage concludes Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET when third-place Liverpool host West Ham United on NBCSN and TELEMUNDO. Liverpool dropped from second to third this weekend, when Bournemouth came back from 2-0 and 3-1 down to defeat the Reds 4-3.

Sunday at 2 p.m. ET, NBCSN presents the third episode of Behind the Badge: Watford FC, a four-part series that provides an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the Hornets. Voiced by BBC presenter and former English footballer Gary Lineker, this week’s episode focuses on Watford’s squad management amongst injuries and suspensions, highlights the club’s connection to legendary singer Elton John and follows the Under 18 squad as they prepare for a 3rd Round FA Youth Cup match.
