EPL Commentators on NBC: Oct. 2, 2020

Patrick Bamford and Leeds United host Manchester City, who were last season’s Premier League runners-up, and champions the prior two seasons, this Saturday, Oct. 3 at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Universo, highlighting this weekend’s Premier League action.

After opening the season with a close loss at defending champions Liverpool, Leeds have won their past two Premier League outings, including a 1-0 win at Sheffield United last Sunday in which Bamford scored an 88th-minute winner. Manchester City are looking to bounce back after last weekend’s 5-2 defeat against Jamie Vardy and Leicester City at Etihad Stadium. Arlo White will call the match on NBC, joined by former Premier League footballer Lee Dixon, live from Elland Road.

Rebecca Lowe hosts Goal Zone, Premier League Mornings, and Premier League Live, joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, and former Premier League and U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard.

This weekend’s coverage kicks off Saturday at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on Peacock Premium, followed by Chelsea hosting Crystal Palace at 7:30 a.m. ET. At 10 a.m. ET, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Everton – who’ve won their opening three Premier League games – host Brighton & Hove Albion on NBCSN and Universo. Saturday’s coverage concludes on Peacock Premium starting with Premier League Live at 2:30 p.m. ET, followed by Newcastle v. Burnley at 3 p.m. ET and Goal Zone at 5 p.m. ET.

Sunday’s live Premier League coverage features a trio of Peacock Premium matches in the morning, beginning at 7 a.m. ET with Jamie Vardy and top-of-the-table Leicester City hosting West Ham, who recorded their first victory of the season in a 4-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday. Also at 7 a.m. ET, Southampton host West Bromwich Albion, who are still looking for their first Premier League victory since rejoining the Premier League this season. Following at 9 a.m. ET, Arsenal host Sheffield United.

Sunday’s tripleheader on NBCSN begins with Wolverhampton Wanderers v. Fulham at 9 a.m. ET (NBCSN, Telemundo), followed by Premier League Live at 11 a.m. ET and Tottenham visiting Manchester United at 11:30 a.m. ET (NBCSN, Telemundo). Spurs are coming off a 1-1 draw with Newcastle last Sunday, while Manchester United fought back in dramatic fashion to beat Brighton & Hove Albion, 3-2, last weekend. White and Dixon will call Manchester United-Tottenham, which sees Jose Mourinho return to Old Trafford, on NBCSN.

At 2:15 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo, defending champions Liverpool visit Aston Villa in a clash of so-far perfect clubs at Villa Park, followed by Goal Zone at 4:15 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
