EPL commentator assignments on NBC Sports, Gameweek 17

NBC Sports and the Premier League will welcome fans to this season’s second Premier League Mornings Live supporter event this weekend in Miami Beach. The festivities will kick off on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7 a.m. ET at Miami’s historic Clevelander South Beach Hotel.

The two-day fan festival will feature live action from nine Premier League fixtures across five match windows, culminating with the Arsenal v. Manchester City showdown on Sun., Dec. 15 at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo. Third-place Manchester City fell 2-1 to Manchester United in the Manchester Derby last weekend, while Arsenal are coming off a 3-1 victory over West Ham. Arsenal’s victory marked the Gunners’ first win under interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg, who took over following the firing of Unai Emery. Arlo White calls the match, joined by Lee Dixon.

NBC Sports’ studio team of host Rebecca Lowe and analysts Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino, and Robbie Mustoe will broadcast Premier League Mornings Live, presented by Barclays, live from the event all weekend.

Live coverage begins Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings Live, followed by first-place Liverpool v. Watford on NBCSN and Universo at 7:30 a.m. ET.

The event will feature the Premier League trophy and club mascots, as well as appearances from former Premier League players Jay DeMerit and Nigel Reo-Coker.

In addition, Miami-based Telemundo Deportes – the exclusive Spanish language home of the Premier League in the U.S. – will have its biggest-ever fan festival presence with special production on location, including pre-game coverage featuring on-air experts Andres Cantor, Manuel Sol, Miguel Gurwitz and Copan Alvarez alongside Ana Jurka, co-host of Telemundo Deportes’ news and entertainment nightly show, Titulares y Más.

Cantor will call Sunday’s Arsenal-Manchester City match (11:30 a.m. ET) live from the fan fest, where fans can observe his play-by-play and famous goal call in person.

On Saturday, match coverage following Liverpool v. Watford continues with Christian Pulisic and fourth-place Chelsea hosting Bournemouth at 10 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Three other matches during the 10 a.m. slate will be shown on NBC Sports Gold: Burnley v. Newcastle, second-place Leicester City v. Norwich City, and Sheffield United v. Aston Villa.

At 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, NBC presents coverage of Southampton v. West Ham as White calls the match, joined by Graeme Le Saux.

Fans will return to Miami Beach for a second day of festivities on Sunday, Dec. 15, as Premier League Mornings Live kicks off the day with a two-hour show beginning at 7 a.m. ET. Sunday’s show features Miami Heat all-star Jimmy Butler speaking with the 2 Robbies about his soccer fandom. Next, sixth-place Wolverhampton Wanderers host seventh-place Tottenham at 9 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo. Spurs, led by Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, are coming off a 5-0 win over Burnley last week and have won three of their four PL matches under new head coach Jose Mourinho. Wolves, who drew with Brighton & Hove Albion, 2-2, last weekend, haven’t lost a Premier League match since a defeat to Chelsea on September 14.

Also at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday, Everton visit fifth-place Manchester United at Old Trafford on NBC Sports Gold. The weekend’s matches conclude on Monday, Dec. 16, with Crystal Palace v. Brighton & Hove Albion at 2:45 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

The Miami Beach fan festival is the second of three Premier League Mornings Live supporter events that NBC Sports and the Premier League have presented this season, following October’s event in Austin, Texas.

Viewers across the country can share in the fun by checking in on social media using #MyPLMorning wherever they are watching.
