Mohamed Salah and defending champions Liverpool visit James Rodriguez and first-place Everton in the Merseyside Derby this Saturday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo, highlighting this weekend’s Premier League action.
Liverpool opened their season with three consecutive wins before a stunning 7-2 loss at Aston Villa before the international break. Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton look to remain perfect this season, following a 4-2 victory over Brighton on Oct. 3. Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored six goals this season for the Toffees, tied for the Premier League lead with Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son.
NBC Sports’ lead Premier League play-by-play commentator Arlo White and analyst Lee Dixon, a former Arsenal player, will call a doubleheader on Saturday, beginning with Everton v. Liverpool from Goodison Park, followed by Manchester City v. fourth-place Arsenal from Etihad Stadium at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC & Universo. This is the fourth time White and Dixon will call a doubleheader for NBC Sports, and the first since they called West Ham-Arsenal and Chelsea-Newcastle alongside Graeme Le Saux on Jan. 12, 2019.
Following Everton-Liverpool on Saturday, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea host Southampton at 10 a.m. ET (NBCSN, Universo). At 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC, Manchester City aim to improve on their 1-1-1 record following a draw with Leeds United. Arsenal, who signed midfielder Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid on last week’s Transfer Deadline Day, topped Sheffield United, 2-1, in their most recent match behind goals from Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe.
