EPL Commentators on NBC Sports: Jan. 13, 2017

Second-place Liverpool visit Manchester United in a clash of English football’s two most successful clubs this Sunday, Jan. 15, at 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN and TELEMUNDO. Liverpool (18 top-flight titles) are unbeaten in their last six league matches, while Manchester United (20 top-flight titles) are coming off six straight league wins. The teams last met in October, a 0-0 draw at Anfield.

NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League play-by-play commentator Arlo White calls the match, joined by analyst Graeme Le Saux at Old Trafford. Sunday, beginning with Premier League Live at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN, White and Le Saux will report live from a pitch-side desk at Old Trafford, joined by former Premier League footballer Danny Higginbotham, with the latest news and analysis leading up to the match. Higginbotham made 210 career Premier League appearances for five clubs (Manchester United, Derby County, Southampton, Sunderland and Stoke City).

Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Live from NBC Sports Group’s International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn., joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle and former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe.

This weekend’s Premier League coverage begins this Saturday, Jan. 14, at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN followed by third-place Tottenham v. West Bromwich Albion at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO. Spurs have won their last five league matches, and are coming off a 2-0 win against first-place Chelsea thanks to two goals from Dele Alli.

Saturday’s coverage continues at 10 a.m. ET, as NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO present Swansea City v. fifth-place Arsenal, and CNBC hosts coverage of West Ham United v. Crystal Palace.
