EPL Commentators on NBC: Aug. 9, 2019

NBC Sports’ coverage of the 2019-20 Premier League season kicks off this Friday, August 9, when Liverpool host Norwich City at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Coverage continues throughout the weekend, highlighted by Manchester United v. Chelsea, featuring the expected debut of U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder Christian Pulisic with Chelsea, this Sunday, August 11 at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo.

Continuing its annual tradition of launching the season in the U.K., NBC Sports’ U.S.-based Premier League team will open the season on the road, as the entire announce team is together on-location in the United Kingdom to kick off the 2019-20 Premier League season. NBC Sports’ opening weekend coverage will feature commentary and discussion from its full Premier League broadcast team on-site at Anfield, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Old Trafford.

For the kickoff of the 2019-20 Premier League season, Rebecca Lowe will return to her native U.K. to host the Premier League Live pre- and post-match show on-site throughout the weekend, joined by a revolving combination of analysts, including the U.S.-based team of Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino and Robbie Mustoe. Arlo White will call the matches, and host pre-match and post-match appearances from NBC Sports’ pitch-side locations. Earle, Martino and Mustoe will each call a match with White. They will join NBC’s U.K.-based team of Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux for live on-site Premier League coverage across the three days.

Live coverage from Anfield begins Friday at 2 p.m. ET with Premier League Live, followed by Champions League winners Liverpool v. newly promoted Norwich City at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Lowe, Dixon, and Mustoe will host coverage in the studio, while Earle and Le Saux join live from the pitch alongside White, who will call the match with Martino.

Newcastle, led by Steve Bruce, will begin life after Rafa Benitez, who left the club in the summer. Meanwhile, Arsenal hope to reclaim a spot in the top-4 after finishing fifth last season. Also at 9 a.m. ET, Leicester City host Wolverhampton Wanderers on CNBC. Wolverhampton Wanderers look to build on their successful 2018-19 campaign, in which they finished as the best newly promoted side in the Premier League since 2000-01 (7th place).

Live coverage from the U.K. concludes on Sunday, August 11 from Old Trafford with Manchester United v. Chelsea at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo.

    My god, I hope they do not integrate American commentators. Listening to Kyle Martino commentate is like dragging a fork through word salad. Keep it authentic! Shame NBC, shame.

    how can we get nbcsn?

      If you have cable or satellite check with your provider. You may have to pay extra for adding a bundle that includes NBCSN.
      Alternately, you can subscribe to a streaming service, like Fubo or Sling, and get the package that includes NBCSN.

    Interesting that as of 11:50 am Eastern, West Ham Manchester City is available on replay on the app in Spanish under the Telemundo Deportes section yet the English feed is embargoed.

        How do you find out the world feed commentary?

    NBCSN will not have a post game show on Friday as NASCAR starts at 5PM ET. We won’t see any interviews with players/managers at Anfield today. It is possible that Jurgen Klopp stops by the NBCSN desk like he did last season but I’m sure they’ll tell us to watch it online.
    I’ll be watching the 1st round of the DFB Cup this weekend & on Monday on ESPN3 Darek Rae is commentating 2 games. There are 8 games streaming live. Check it out.

    it was funny yesterday how Lee Dixon wasn’t allowed on the Transfer show inside the Sky studios as an ITV analyst

      Considering they let Alex Scott work for the BBC and also let Gary Neville work for ITV… I’d say your theory is a non-starter.

    Thanks for posting this up again this season.
    All looks good. What’s happened to Lee Dixon as a co-commentator? Just a short break? Or has he left NBC?

    • Christopher Harris

      Lee Dixon will be in the studio as an analyst this weekend for NBC Sports. No commentaries this weekend, but he’ll be fully involved this season with NBC Sports.

        Cool. Hated him as a player but really like him as a co-commentator.

        I did wonder if his contract with ITV prevented him from joining in on the Sky Sports studio stuff the other day. As we read in the Clive Tyldesley article, domestic exclusivity is sometimes part of the job.
