EPL Commentator Schedule

EPL Commentators on NBC: Nov. 5 to Nov. 7

The Manchester Derby highlights another set of ten games in the Premier League this upcoming weekend. Sure, it is not a top-of-the-table clash, but that shows how important the game is for both teams.

However, coverage starts before that 8:30 a.m. kickoff on Saturday. In fact, we have another Friday game ahead of us. Aston Villa travels to the south coast to play Southampton at 4 p.m. ET. Aston Villa, which entered the season as dark horse top-seven candidate, currently sits three points outside the relegation zone. Southampton is just one point ahead of Villa.

Then, Saturday’s coverage kicks off with Premier League Mornings before the Manchester Derby. This is the eighth time since 2013/14 that the two sides enter the fixture both in the top-five in the EPL table. Pep Guardiola’s squad suffered a shock defeat last time out against Crystal Palace. The Citizens are five points behind league-leaders Chelsea.

Similarly, Manchester United enters the game on a mixed run of form. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s squad ended their EPL skid last weekend with a 3-0 win over Tottenham. The Red Devils are in fifth, three points behind City and West Ham.

Taking it back to Tottenham, Antonio Conte makes his return to management in Premier League action on Sunday as Tottenham takes on Everton. Conte last managed Inter Milan to a Scudetto. Now, he picks up the pieces in North London with Tottenham losing three of their last five in league play.

Also on Sunday, West Ham hosts Liverpool in a matchup between the fourth- and second-placed teams in the table, respectively. David Moyes is on a hot streak with three-consecutive wins in the Premier League.

Arsenal, who now sits at sixth in the Premier League, looks to make it eight unbeaten in the league when they host Watford.

NBC Coverage for Gameweek 11

As usual, Premier League Mornings get the games set on Saturday and Sunday. Ahead of the second and third windows for games, Premier League Live acts as the pregame content to get you set. Following the conclusion of all games, Goal Zone wraps up the major storylines from throughout the day.

This week, Robbie Mustoe and Robbie Earle join Rebecca Lowe behind the desk. Paul Burmeister fills in for Lowe on Friday.

Finally, following Goal Zone on Sunday, the Men in Blazers Show has its season debut. Everton manager Rafa Benitez joins Roger Bennett and Michael Davies at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Now, here are the commentator crews to be heard on NBC. All times are Eastern Time. Remember, the clocks fall back Saturday night.

    She’s new to calling matches, comes from a pundit/host background. She’ll get better. Watched snippets of the match, didn’t think she was all that bad.

    @RBJ I was thinking the same. She’s OK but I wouldn’t be thrilled to get her every week, if I’m honest.

    Jacqui Oatley needs to talk less. Much less.

    @Jon Agree about Kevin Hatchard. Hard to listen to. That Mainz goal tho—what a strike, off the post and in!

    @Nathan. Nice. What I wouldn’t give to be able to watch Sky Sports regularly here in Canada.

    Very enjoyable comms from Jim Proudfoot and David Prutton today, especially in contrast to the truly awful Bundesliga duo of Hatchard and Kevin McKenna. I loved McKenna as a player but he struggles to find the words to complete any sentence he starts. Prutton was such a scrappy players it’s almost surprising how smooth and articulate he is.

    Back to rationality with the better matches on NBCSN and the others on the ‘cock.
