EPL Commentators on NBC Sports: Oct. 27, 2017

NBC Sports Group’s Premier League coverage this weekend is highlighted by a clash of two title contenders, as second-place Manchester United host third-place Tottenham this Saturday, October 28, at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Coverage also includes two matches on NBC, as fourth-place Chelsea visit Bournemouth this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET (also available on Universo), and Leicester City host Everton this Sunday, October 29, at Noon ET (also available on Telemundo).

The Red Devils look to bounce back from their first Premier League loss of the season, as they were defeated by newly promoted Huddersfield Town 2-1 on Saturday. Tottenham, who are level on points with Manchester United, come off a 4-1 win over Liverpool. Premier League leading scorer Harry Kane (8 goals) scored two goals in the match, the first coming in the fourth minute.

Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBCSN presents first-place Manchester City visiting West Bromwich Albion, with Liverpool v. Huddersfield Town on CNBC. City and their leading scorer Sergio Aguero (7 goals, tied for second-most in PL) come off a 3-0 win over Burnley, their seventh consecutive Premier League victory.

Also Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold’s “Premier League Pass” presents three matches: Arsenal v. Swansea City, Crystal Palace v. West Ham United, and Watford v. Stoke City. Arsenal come off a 5-2 win at Everton, including goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

“Premier League Pass” will feature more than 1,000 hours of additional non-match content throughout the season. Fans can purchase by visiting NBCSportsGold.com for the 2017-18 season of “Premier League Pass,” priced at $49.99.

NBC’s first of two matches this weekend will feature Bournemouth v. Chelsea Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET. Reigning champions Chelsea recently defeated Watford 4-2, highlighted by two goals from Michy Batshuayi – his first two of the Premier League season.

NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League play-by-play commentator Arlo White calls the match, joined by analyst Graeme Le Saux at Vitality Stadium. Immediately following the match, NBC presents a live Goal Zone at 2:30 p.m. ET. Rebecca Lowe hosts Goal Zone and Premier League Live, joined by former Jamaican National Team player Robbie Earle and former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe.

Coverage on Sunday, October 29, begins at 8:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN, followed by Brighton & Hove Albion v. Southampton at 9:30 a.m. ET. Sunday at Noon ET, NBC hosts coverage of Leicester City v. Everton. Both teams are expected to play under interim managers, as Leicester City are currently led by Michael Appleton following the firing of Craig Shakespeare, while David Unsworth is currently in charge of Everton after the Toffees fired Ronald Koeman on Monday.

White calls Leicester City v. Everton joined by Le Saux at King Power Stadium.

Live match coverage wraps up this Monday, October 30, with Premier League Live at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN followed by Burnley v. Newcastle at 4 p.m. ET.

    Well, well well, 10 round into the PL season and the table is “as predicted”: “Big 6” hold spots 1-6, with Man City pulling away and Liverpool barely holding on to spot 6.

    The PL title may be decided by New Year’s Day if Man Utd continues to play like AC Milan circa 1994-1995.

    Only the relegation zealots will be watching PL after that. The glory hunters will move on to something else. The TV ratings on NBCSN and NBC will be down again.

    Arlo White has turned himself into the “Dave O’Brien” of “English Football” announcers. Way too busy performing scripted material and telling stories, not enough pxp at the start of a match.

    Rebecca and the Two Robbies are calling out United, especially the Special 1, for playing “tactical” football.

    Man Utd have turned into AC Milan circa 1994-1995 under the Special 1.

    Only one team was able to solve AC Milan in 1994-1995: a loaded AFC Ajax beat AC Milan 3 times in the UEFA Champions League.

    Derek Rae tweeted that he is at the studio of NBC Sports Group on Saturday morning as an observer.

    He was in New York to call NFL Thursday Night Football off monitor with Tommy Smyth for Amazon Prime Video.

    When Martin Tyler is fully alert, he can still be excellent, as he was two weeks ago.

    The problem: you don’t know whether the good Tyler or the bad Tyler will show up in the booth.

    Stop the hate on Peter Drury. He isn’t nearly as bad as some of you would describe.

    Arlo White, on the other hand, is an “American soccer announcer” with a British accent. “Up top”, “outshot”, etc. Keep that up and he will be banished and sentenced to a lifetime of calling American women’s college soccer on ACC ESPN Network and SEC ESPN Network with the likes of Markgraf, Whitehill, and Lilly.

    I always appreciate this resource as I plan my weekend’s viewing.

      Me too. Knowing in advance that Drury ain’t on the Saints game is bliss. No waiting with dread as they say ‘over to Falmer where the commentary comes from….. ‘.
      Enjoy the weekend everyone.
