STAMFORD, Conn. – November 15, 2016 – Manchester United host Arsenal this Saturday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC UNIVERSO, kicking off NBC Sports Group’s Premier League coverage this weekend. Prior to the international break, Manchester United’s leading scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic led the Red Devils with two goals in their 3-1 defeat of Swansea City on Nov. 6. However, United will have to do without Ibrahimovic in their match against the Gunners, as he is serving a one-game suspension due to yellow card accumulation. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League matches, most recently drawing 1-1 with Tottenham in the North London Derby on Nov. 6. Coverage kicks off at 6:30 a.m. ET with Premier League Live on NBCSN.
Live match coverage continues Saturday at 10 a.m. ET when first-place Liverpool visit Southampton on NBCSN. The Reds claimed the top spot in the league after a 6-1 victory over Watford on Nov. 6, featuring goals from Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.
All matches not on NBCSN in the Saturday 10 a.m. ET television window will be available on Premier League Extra Time, a bonus television package available to MVPDs at no extra cost for customers who receive NBCSN. In addition, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. ET, the Premier League’s Goal Rush product will be featured on Premier League Extra Time as well as via the NBC Sports app and on NBCSports.com.
Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET, fifth-place Tottenham host West Ham United in a London derby on NBC and NBC UNIVERSO.
