NBC Sports wraps up a massive Premier League season with “Championship Sunday,” featuring all 10 matches presented live simultaneously this Sunday, May 23 at 11 a.m. ET, across the networks of NBCUniversal and Peacock.
Two Champions League positions are at stake between three clubs on the season’s final day as Chelsea (67 points), Liverpool (66), and Leicester City (66) are separated by one point: Christian Pulisic and third-place Chelsea visit Aston Villa (USA Network, Peacock), fourth-place Liverpool, who topped Burnley, 3-0, yesterday to move into the top-four for the first time since February, host Crystal Palace (NBC, Peacock, Telemundo), and fifth-place Leicester City host Premier League co-leading scorer Harry Kane (22 goals) and Tottenham (NBCSN, Peacock, Universo).
NBCUniversal’s “Championship Sunday” coverage kicks off on NBCSN this Sunday at 9 a.m. ET with a special two-hour Premier League Mornings, hosted by Rebecca Lowe, who’s joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, and former Premier League players Tim Howard and Robbie Mustoe. A special Premier League Goal Rush will be available at 11 a.m. ET free on Peacock.
NBC Sports’ lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White will call Liverpool v. Crystal Palace, joined by former Premier League players Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux. Also, Seb Hutchinson and Matt Holland will call the Leicester City v. Tottenham match, while Nigel Adderley and Rob Green call Aston Villa v. Chelsea.
After winning their third Premier League title in the last four seasons earlier this month, Manchester City will lift the Premier League trophy Sunday after facing Everton (CNBC, Peacock) in their first match at Etihad Stadium since being crowned champions. Peacock will present the match in both English and Spanish. Play-by-play commentator Diego Pessolano and analyst Walter Roque will call the action in Spanish.
