First-place Liverpool won their second consecutive PL match last weekend with a 2-1 victory over West Ham behind goals from Salah, who is tied for third in the Premier League with seven goals this season, and Diogo Jota, who has scored in two straight Premier League games. Manchester City topped Sheffield United, 1-0, last weekend as Kyle Walker scored his first goal of the season. Arlo White will call the match, joined by former Premier League player Lee Dixon, live from Etihad Stadium.

    good to see them finally discuss it

    What do you propose NBC does about it? They have no control over the kickoff times.

    Being on the West Coast with VERY early matches, the inability to record Peacock is a real minus. Couldn’t Peacock at least give a FIRM indication at what time the replay will be made available, e.g. not more than two hours after the game.

    @Rick. Or… for those that cut the cord and don’t pay a lot more for a live tv stream service or cable or Sat Tv to get NBC sports network, but instead only pay $5 a month for Peacock stream service… get a real treat for going the cheaper route and get to enjoy the match of the week! (And not just only relegation bound clubs).

    If you already pay to get NBC Sports network, i hardly think $5 more a month is going to break your bank.

    Yea, maybe i sound harsh… but all this whining being done at practically every article posting about the greed of NBC since Peacock launched is just getting tiresome.

    Maybe folks only want to read posts that actually relate to the topic of the article. .

    >> Jim Proudfoot on a Southampton game is always a nice pairing
    Agree. Especially when it’s commentating on an easy 2-0 win to go top of the league.
    Top of the bleedin’ league. Bring it on!

    Liverpool vs Man City should’ve been on NBC network- would’ve got big ratings. This is all about greed with NBC- making viewers pay more during a recession and paramedic. Pathetic.

    I agree, Chris. It was a rare treat to hear Nigel Adderley, and it didn’t hurt that the game was a 7-goal thriller.

    I’m interested to hear Conor McNamara as commentator; I’ve only heard him as a reporter. Jim Proudfoot on a Southampton game is always a nice pairing.

    Looking forward to the weekend!

      It’s interesting because this is the second week in a row where we’ve had a BBC 5 Live commentator making his Premier League debut on the world feed. Last Sunday, it was Nigel Adderley, which is a rare treat on TV.
