STAMFORD, Conn. – November 20, 2019 – NBC Sports’ coverage of the Premier League returns this weekend as Christian Pulisic and Chelsea visit Manchester City on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Telemundo in a matchup between two top-four clubs.
Pulisic has scored in each of Chelsea’s last three Premier League matches and, if he recovers from his hip injury, will look to become the first ever American to score in four consecutive PL matches. Sergio Aguero and Manchester City, who sit in fourth place one point behind Chelsea, look to rebound from a 3-1 loss to Liverpool two weeks ago. Chelsea and Manchester City have combined to win five of the past six Premier League titles. Arlo White, Lee Dixon, and Graeme Le Saux will call the match at Etihad Stadium.
Premier League Mornings kicks off Saturday’s coverage at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN, followed by a doubleheader on NBCSN: at 7:30 a.m. ET, Tottenham visit West Ham. Head Coach Jose Mourinho makes his Spurs debut after the surprise firing of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday. Mourinho is one of the Premier League’s greatest-ever managers, having won three titles with Chelsea. Then, sixth-place Arsenal host Southampton at 10 a.m. ET.
In addition, the Premier League’s top two clubs – Liverpool and Leicester City – play on NBC Sports Gold this weekend. Following is the slate of NBC Sports Gold’s exclusive live coverage of five matches this Saturday at 10 a.m. ET: Bournemouth v. Wolverhampton Wanderers, Brighton & Hove Albion v. second-place Leicester City, Crystal Palace v. first-place Liverpool, Everton v. Norwich City, and Watford v. Burnley.
Sunday kicks off with a two-hour Premier League Mornings at 9:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN, followed by Sheffield United v. Manchester United at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo. Fifth-place Sheffield United look to continue their hot start to the season, while Marcus Rashford and Manchester United aim to build on their 3-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion in their last Premier League match. White and Le Saux will call the action.
The week’s matches culminate on Monday when Aston Villa host Newcastle United at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Following the match, it’s a new episode of THE MEN IN BLAZERS SHOW, hosted by soccer personalities Michael Davies and Roger Bennett at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
