Virgil van Dijk and the unbeaten Reds host Sergio Aguero and the two-time defending champions as Manchester City aim to close the current six-point gap at the top of the table. Arlo White and Graeme Le Saux, who will call the match, begin Sunday morning’s coverage from a special pitch-side desk at Anfield and will be joined by players and managers at the desk throughout the day.
This week’s match coverage kicks off on Friday with Norwich City v. Watford at 3 p.m. ET. The match will be presented via unauthenticated live stream for all viewers on the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com.

Sheffield United at 10 a.m. ET. Pulisic has scored four goals in Chelsea’s last two Premier League matches and looks to become the first American to score in at least three consecutive Premier League matches since Clint Dempsey accomplished the feat with Fulham in 2012 (March 31 – April 9).
Also on Saturday, NBC presents Leicester City v. Arsenal at 12:30 p.m. ET. Fifth-place Arsenal aim for three points in the race for a top-4 finish, while third-place Leicester City, led by this season’s top scorer Jamie Vardy (10 goals), look for a fourth straight Premier League win.

Bournemouth, Southampton v. Everton, and Wolverhampton Wanderers v. Aston Villa.

Following the match, this week’s Premier League coverage concludes on Sunday with a new episode of THE MEN IN BLAZERS SHOW, hosted by soccer personalities Michael Davies and Roger Bennett at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN. This week’s featured guest is Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.
