EPL Commentators on NBC Sports: Oct. 16, 2020

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.

This weekend’s coverage kicks off Saturday at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on NBCSN. Saturday’s coverage concludes on Peacock Premium starting with Premier League Live at 2:30 p.m. ET, followed by Newcastle v. Manchester United at 3 p.m. ET and Goal Zone at 5 p.m. ET.

Rebecca Lowe hosts Goal Zone, Premier League Mornings, and Premier League Live on Saturday and Sunday, joined by former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe, and former Premier League and U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard. Ahmed Fareed hosts Monday’s coverage, alongside Mustoe and Howard.

Sunday’s live Premier League coverage features Harry Kane and Tottenham, who are unbeaten in their last three PL matches and topped Manchester United, 6-1, at Old Trafford on Oct. 4, facing West Ham at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo.

Sunday also features a trio of Peacock Premium matches, beginning at 7 a.m. ET with Sheffield United hosting Fulham, followed by Brighton & Hove Albion visiting rivals Crystal Palace at 9 a.m. ET. At 2:15 p.m. ET on Peacock Premium, Jamie Vardy and third-place Leicester face Jack Grealish and second-place Aston Villa, who look to remain perfect this season.

On Monday, Premier League coverage begins at Noon ET with Premier League Live on Peacock Premium, followed by West Brom v. Burnley at 12:30 p.m. ET. The weekend’s match coverage concludes at 3 p.m. ET as Leeds United host Wolverhampton Wanderers (NBCSN, Universo).

    I forgot how awful it is to listen to Drury in a “big game” as he tones down the act somewhat for the lesser matches and allows the football to be the attraction. Both derbies were him at his worst, knowing that every big moment will feature on the season highlights show.

    cm asia: I expected NBC to use CNBC to show games instead of Peacock. I’m paying for the channel as are millions of others. The markets are closed today, CNBC has no live programming on the weekend. We’re still allowed to criticize NBC/Peacock, it’s a free country. If WST is silent, does not mean the people who post on here have to be. When does the greed stop or is that their business model?

    I bet 90% of Arse fans wish their game was on Peacock. They wouldn’t have had to suffer it then.
    Great/pathetic seeing Lpool fans moaning about a dodgy decision. 99% of the time they go their way. Welcome to the real world you glory supporting plastic ‘let’s support the best team’ types.
    Please cry some more. It’s superb!
    Oh – and ‘hi’ Chelsea fans. What a great subtle header that was by Vestergaard. Lampard out!

    Bad enough NBC ruins one game per week with Arlo White. This week they have to ruin two of them with that screaming, blithering idiot.

    Old news, Azer.
    175 games on Peacock this year.
    Did you expect all of them to be West Brom v Burnley?

    On Saturday October 17th, at 1:30PM ET NBCSN will show IMSA Auto racing, relegating Newcastle vs Manchester United to Peacock. On Sunday October 18th, at 2PM ET NBCSN will show a replay from Liga MX, Guadalajara vs Atlas relegating Leicester City vs Aston Villa to Peacock. Shame on them. How do you people feel about this?

    Love how you think Everton will beat Liverpool that easily. I know they lost 7-2 but that was a blip, plus 4 defected goals. Everton have as good of a chance as ever to beat Liverpool, but if they do it won’t be by 3 goalsm and they definitely won’t keep a clean sheet. Let me remind you that Everton are yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season. They conceded to each against West Brom and Brighton, and Liverpool are a whole different beast going forward.

    John G. – you’ll beat Lpool 3-0 and will on cloud 9 all week.
    Come midday ET on Sunday next week – you’ll be back to reality 🙂

    I would not be happy about it, if it were to happen, I should have said.

    Glad you’re happy about that SaintsFan… I’m not, because Everton are away at St. Mary’s next weekend.

    The train from Liverpool to Manchester takes like 40 minutes. There’s no need to take a helicopter unless NBC just wants to show off.

    I do like having the world feed as much as possible, though.

    Good to see Arlo White and Lee Dixon having a double stint. They work well together. I prefer Dixon to Le Saux. Plus 10x better than having Drury screaming out the name of whatever star player he fancies this week – regardless of whether they actually did anything worth screaming about.

    Shame we have to suffer him for the Spurs v West Ham game but no complaints. Bring on the weekend. Chelsea 0 Saints 1. 3rd 1-0 win a row. The new Burnley.

  13. John G.

    October 16, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    We did get one indisputable bon-bon… Martin Tyler calling the Leeds United-Wolves match at Elland Road. Even NBC hesitates to preempt Martin Tyler… as they should.

  14. John G.

    October 16, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    Arlo White is taking the M62… or, more likely, a helicopter… from the Merseyside Derby at Goodison to the Etihad for Man City-Arsenal. Why couldn’t they have just given us the world feed for the Derby? They’re not putting it on national TV… just cable.
