Heading into the third week of the 2019-20 Premier League season, Liverpool and Arsenal are the only clubs who have won both of their first two matches. Salah and Aubameyang shared the 2018-19 Golden Boot Award (along with Sadio Mane), and each have already netted goals for their teams this season. Arlo White calls the match, joined by Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux.

Saturday’s Manchester City-Tottenham was the most-watched match of the weekend with 1.3 million viewers across NBC Sports, NBCSports.com, the NBC Sports app, and Telemundo Deportes. Chelsea-Leicester City was the most watched match on Sunday, posting a TAD of 736,000 viewers, up 44% from NBCSN’s August -September 2018 average for the Sunday 11 a.m. ET Premier League window.

    After watching the Bundesliga on FS2 today, I switched to NBCSN to watch the rest of Aston Villa v. Everton. After the game NBCSN went to Sky Sports feed from Villa Park. Kelly Cates, Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville interviewed Aston Villa coach Dean Smith. After a minute or so, Rebecca Lowe cut to a commercial break. We never got to see the full interview. I thought NBC is doing business with Sky Sports. What kind of idiot is running the EPL on NBC. They’re beyond awful.

      You’re so whiny. It’s painful.

        The truth is painful. Why don’t you answer the question. What was the point of showing the interview for a minute or so? Keep in mind, Goal Zone was an hour long yesterday. All the talk about doing business with Sky Sports. What has changed with NBC’s coverage this season? Nothing. I’m not fooled by them.

          Again, another hugely whiny post.

          Congrats with your obsession over the way a television network does business.

          “You’re not fooled by them”….Hahahahaha. What does that even mean? Get a grip.

    I’m glad to see Efan Ekoku featuring regularly this season, I hope it continues. No, he’s not excitable but he offers good insight.

      Sadly Ekoku won’t get much chance in the Norwich game. Drury will be too busy yakking non stop about Chelsea and screaming any of their players name if they look like having a shot, taking a good throw-in or lacing their boots in an amazing way that only a Chelsea player could think of.
      Please NBC – broadcast the game with good surround sound so that the commentary can be turned down without losing the sound of the crowd.
      Brighton 1 Saints 2. Enjoy the weekend everyone.

        I haven’t tried the surround sound idea. My friend and I just turned the sound down low on the Villa game, which unfortunately also mutes the crowd excitement. In Canada we’ll have had Drury 10 times in 2 1/2 weeks by the end of the weekend (9 EPL, 1 Carabao Cup). For me that is the worst side-effect of losing Jon Champion.

      I enjoy Efan Ekoku too, though not as much as I enjoyed watching him play for Norwich City!
