EPL Commentators on NBC: April 6, 2018

NBC Sports Group presents a blockbuster Saturday of double-derby Premier League action, highlighted by Manchester City hosting rivals Manchester United this Saturday, April 7, at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Telemundo, with a chance to clinch the Premier League title. With a win in Saturday’s Manchester derby, Manchester City would secure their third Premier League title in the last seven seasons. They have been dominant all season with 27 wins, three draws, and only one loss, and if they beat the Red Devils on Saturday, it would be the earliest a team has ever clinched the Premier League title.

Saturday’s coverage begins at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN, followed by Everton v. Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. The Reds come off a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, with a goal from the Premier League’s leading scorer Mohamed Salah (29 goals), maintaining their third-place Champions League position. Everton look to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to league-leaders Manchester City.

NBC Sports Group’s lead play-by-play commentator Arlo White and analyst Lee Dixon will call both Everton v. Liverpool and Manchester City v. Manchester United, traveling from Liverpool to Manchester between matches. White and Dixon will also provide pitch-side commentary during build-up to the Manchester Derby.

Immediately following the Manchester Derby, NBC presents a live Goal Zone at 2:30 p.m. ET. Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Live, joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, and former U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Kyle Martino.

Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBCSN hosts coverage of Brighton & Hove Albion v. Huddersfield Town, with Bournemouth v. Crystal Palace at 10 a.m. ET on CNBC. Also Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold presents four exclusive matches: Stoke City v. Tottenham; Leicester City v. Newcastle; Watford v. Burnley; and West Bromwich Albion v. Swansea City.

Live Premier League coverage on Sunday, April 8, begins at 8 a.m. ET on NBCSN with Premier League Live followed by Arsenal v. Southampton at 9:15 a.m. ET. The Gunners come off a 3-0 win over Stoke, with all three goals coming in the final 16 minutes of the match. Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice, with one goal from Alexandre Lacazette. Match coverage continues Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET with Chelsea v. West Ham United on NBCSN and Telemundo.

    Really.. a double dose of the cricket commentator… I rarely watch NBC anymore…and Arlo is the reason why…

    For completeness, the world feed teams for those two NBC-only commentaries:

    Merseyside derby – Jon Champion & Kevin Kilbane
    Manchester derby – Peter Drury & Jim Beglin

    It is the Arlo show. It’s not about quality commentating on the games, its all about drama and showing how he can cover 35 miles and do two games in one day. Who cares. Nobody is tuning in to watch that.

    Might of been more convenient for Derek Rae to do the Merseyside Derby so Arlo White doesn’t have two games in one day

      It does seem rather unnecessary and a bit of a publicity stunt to have Arlo’s crew do both. I would have enjoyed Derek Rae or (the underrated) Steve Bower on the early game.
