Many American fans of European soccer are looking for the EPL commentator schedule for gameweek 8. Now, NBC released the crews for all ten games in England’s top flight.
This week, there are not an absurd number of marquee games. Yet, every game seems to be competitive in this league.
Starting off, Liverpool, which sits at second in the table, travels to newly promoted Watford. This is Watford’s first game under Claudio Ranieri, the manager who led Leicester to the 2015-16 EPL title. Kickoff is set for 7:30 a.m.
Also, before kickoff, be sure to get caught up on EPL news with Premier League Mornings on Peacock. Rebecca Lowe takes her place behind the desk with Robbie Earle and Tim Howard joining.
After the Liverpool-Watford contest, there are five games in the Saturday 10 a.m. window. Obviously, no one can watch and keep up with all five contests. Fortunately, Goal Rush returns this week. The whip-around show featuring goals and highlights from all games in the window is available on Peacock.
Notable games in that window include Manchester United traveling to Leicester City and Aston Villa hosting Wolves.
Rounding off Saturday’s action is a contest between top-of-the-table Chelsea and newcomers Brentford. While the other promoted teams struggle, Brentford remains in the top half of the Premier League. Coverage for the game is on NBC and Universo following Premier League Live on NBCSN.
Next, there are just two games on Sunday. A two-hour Premier League Mornings on NBCSN precedes Everton hosting West Ham. Then, Newcastle, under new ownership, hosts Harry Kane and Tottenham.
Finally, Patrick Vieira returns to Arsenal as the manager of Crystal Palace on Monday. Of course, Vieira is part of the famous Arsenal Invincibles.
