The match marks the 177th meeting between Man City and Man United in all competitions, and remains an eagerly-anticipated fixture in both teams’ schedules. Man City now sit atop the table after an impressive 6-1 defeat of Southampton, while Man United carry momentum after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth. NBC Sports’ lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls the match on NBCSN, joined by analysts Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux.
This weekend’s live Premier League coverage begins Saturday at 7 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on NBCSN, followed by Cardiff City v. Brighton & Hove Albion at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN. Brighton come off a 3-1 loss to Everton, while Cardiff City suffered a narrow 0-1 loss against Leicester City last week.
Live match coverage continues Saturday at 10 a.m. ET with Leicester City v. Burnley on NBCSN and Universo. After an emotional win last weekend at Cardiff City, Leicester City return home to play in their first match at King Power Stadium since the death of their owner & chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. White calls the match, joined by Dixon.
Also Saturday at 10 a.m. ET, NBC Sports Gold presents three exclusive live matches: Newcastle v. Bournemouth, Huddersfield Town v. West Ham, and Southampton v. Watford.
Saturday’s coverage concludes with Crystal Palace v. Tottenham at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Universo. Harry Kane and Tottenham come off a last-minute 2-3 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers to jump into fourth place, while Crystal Palace fell 3-1 to second-place Chelsea last week.
Live coverage on Sunday, Nov. 11, begins at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on NBCSN, followed by third-place Liverpool v. Fulham at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo.
