The Premier League title race continues to heat up. Midweek, Liverpool played its makeup game to get back to the same number of games played as Manchester City. After 26 games, Liverpool trails last season’s Premier League champions by just three points.
However, Liverpool has the weekend off, at least in Premier League action. The Reds battle Chelsea in the EFL Cup Final on Sunday.
On the other hand, Manchester City looks to bounce back from a shocking, and thrilling, defeat against Tottenham on Saturday. City travels to Goodison Park to play a struggling Everton side just two points outside of the drop zone.
Another club that is disappointing this season is Leeds. The club is three points off the drop zone. However, Marcelo Bielsa’s side played two more games than both Everton and Burnley. This weekend, Leeds plays a pivotal game against Tottenham, which is on a poor run of form themselves. Having defeated league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad, Antonio Conte’s club followed up its best result of the season with a loss at 18th-placed Burnley, 1-0.
The most intriguing fixture of the weekend in the Premier League is between Wolves and West Ham. While not necessarily the favorites to qualify for Europe, both clubs are in contention for a top-six finish. To start, West Ham United is currently in fifth. However, one win in the club’s last five EPL games has them four points behind Manchester United. Then, Wolves is on a scintillating run of form. Six wins in the club’s last eight EPL fixtures shot Wolves into seventh, close behind Arsenal, West Ham and Manchester United.
Coverage begins on Friday, however, with Southampton hosting bottom-of-the-league Norwich.
Rebecca Lowe returns from her time with NBC’s 2022 Olympics coverage to host NBC’s studio coverage. Joining Lowe behind the desk are Robbie Earle and Tim Howard.
Premier League Mornings is the pre-game show before the first game or games on Saturday and Sunday. Then, Premier League Live serves as filler coverage between games. Finally, Goal Zone wraps up all the day’s action on both Saturday and Sunday.
