EPL Commentators on NBC: Nov. 27 and Nov. 28
The managerial carousel is in full effect. Last week, three managers made their debuts with new teams. Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard picked up wins with new clubs. Meanwhile, Eddie Howe watched from afar as Newcastle drew with Brentford.
This week, interim-manager of Manchester United Michael Carrick oversees a flailing Red Devils side against top-of-the-table Chelsea. American Christian Pulisic bagged a goal in Chelsea’s comfortable win over Leicester, 3-0. This game is the weekend finale on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET.
While United-Chelsea may be the most important game in terms of history, Sunday’s Manchester City against West Ham game is the most important in regards to this season. West Ham, despite a 1-0 loss at Wolves last weekend, sits at fourth in the EPL table. Meanwhile, Manchester City looks to build on their second-place standing that sees them trailing Chelsea by just three points.
To get things started, Premier League Mornings start at 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Then, Arsenal hosts Newcastle in what should be Eddie Howe’s actual debut with the Magpies.
In between each window of games, Rebecca Lowe, Tim Howard and Robbie Mustoe host Premier League Live. Then, Goal Zone wraps up the day’s action on both Saturday and Sunday.
Last week, Goal Rush, the whiparound coverage for the busy windows of games saw 23 goals over just six games. To ensure you do not miss that same action, Goal Rush returns on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, there are three games in the 10 a.m. window. Then, on Sunday, there are four games at 9 a.m.
However, for those that want to focus on just the Manchester City versus West Ham game, Andrés Cantor calls his second English-language game this season. Danny Higginbotham joins Cantor in the booth from the Etihad, solely on Peacock.
