The NBC commentators for gameweek five in the Premier League are now known.
This week, there are a number of notable games and opportunities for teams to build on their starts to the season. Notably, there are three games between teams in the top-half of the table in this young season.
Starting off, there is a Friday afternoon game between Newcastle and Leeds. Both teams are winless this season, sitting on one and two points, respectively. An hour-long Premier League Live pregame show precedes the game, hosted by Ahmed Fareed and Tim Howard and Robbie Mustoe. Then, Goal Zone follows the contest.
On Saturday, there are six games on the schedule. Premier League Mornings gets the day started at 7 a.m. ET before Wolves hosts Brentford.
Four games come during the 10 a.m. window, then Aston Villa and Everton cap off Saturday’s action. The NBC commentators for that game are Arlo White and Lee Dixon.
Sunday features the three main games of the week. A two-hour Premier League Mornings at 7 a.m. gets you set for the games. At 9 a.m., Brighton hosts Leicester. This season, Brighton sits on nine points, only dropping points in a loss at Everton.
Manchester United looks to bounce back from their brutal defeat against Young Boys in the Champions League at 9 a.m. However, their opponent is no easy task. A road game against West Ham, which is at eight points this season, is up next for Cristiano Ronaldo and the Red Devils.
At 11:30, the best game of the week comes from London. A rivalry game between Tottenham and Chelsea spells a contest of two teams with high aspirations this season. Tottenham (nine points) hosts the Blues (10 points) in an early-season game with both teams looking for a crucial three points.
