EPL Commentators on NBC Sports: Dec. 14, 2018

The Premier League’s fight atop the table continues this weekend when Mohamed Salah and first-place Liverpool host Manchester United in a highly-anticipated match on Sunday, Dec., 16 at 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo. Liverpool jumped into first place after a 4-0 rout of Bournemouth last weekend, while Manchester United also scored four goals in the team’s victory over Fulham. NBC Sports’ lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls Liverpool v. Manchester United on NBCSN, joined by analysts Graeme Le Saux and Lee Dixon. The trio will also offer pre-match commentary from a pitch-side desk at Anfield.

This weekend’s live Premier League coverage begins Saturday at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on NBCSN, followed by 2nd-place Manchester City v. Everton at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. 2nd-place Manchester City sit one point behind Liverpool after their first loss of the season to 4th-place Chelsea, while Everton look for a win after back-to-back draws.

Last Saturday’s Chelsea-Manchester City game, which was the showcase match at the “Premier League Mornings Live” Fan Fest in New York City, averaged 1.1 million viewers on NBC to rank as the most-watched Premier League match this season.

NBCSN’s live coverage continues Saturday at 10 a.m. ET with 3rd-place Tottenham v. Burnley. Tottenham come off a 2-0 win over Leicester City, while Burnley look for a second straight victory after defeating Brighton & Hove Albion last week.

Also Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold presents four exclusive live matches: Crystal Palace v. Leicester City, Huddersfield v. Newcastle, Watford v. Cardiff City, and Wolverhampton Wanderers v. Bournemouth.

Live match coverage concludes on Saturday with Fulham v. West Ham at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Fulham aim to win their third match of the season, while West Ham look to extend their three-match winning streak. White calls the match, joined by Dixon.

Live match coverage on Sunday, Dec. 16, begins at 7:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on NBCSN, followed by Brighton & Hove Albion v. 4th-place Chelsea. Brighton & Hove Albion come off a narrow 1-0 loss to Burnley, while Chelsea look continue their momentum after handing Manchester City their first loss of the season. Derek Rae calls the match, joined by Danny Higginbotham.

Also at 8:30 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold presents coverage of Southampton v. fifth-place Arsenal. Southampton look to win their second match of the season, while Arsenal will hope to break into the league’s top-4.

    Why is Southampton vs Arsenal not being shown on CNBC? Answer: Money & Greed. I’m not an Arsenal fan but I enjoy watching them play. Please people, do not be fooled by NBC Sports and their ”Gold” service, there is nothing golden about it. If it’s not 24K pure gold I’m not buying it. Liverpool vs Manchester United will have a three men commentary team, Why? Is NBC Sports ever going to learn how to be professional or will they continue to be childish? I’m not betting on it.
