First-place Arsenal hosts Liverpool on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET on USA Network and Telemundo, highlighting Premier League action across NBC Sports this weekend.
Arsenal defeated Tottenham, 3-1, last Saturday in the North London Derby and maintain a one-point lead over Manchester City for first place in the English Premier League. Gabriel Jesus scored last weekend against Tottenham and is tied for fourth in the EPL with four goals this season. Liverpool drew Brighton & Hove Albion, 3-3, on Saturday as Roberto Firmino netted a brace. Peter Drury and Graeme Le Saux will call the action live from Emirates Stadium.
This weekend’s coverage begins Saturday at 9 a.m. ET with Premier League Mornings on USA Network, followed by four matches live at 10 a.m. ET: Newcastle vs. Brentford (USA Network, Universo), Bournemouth v. Leicester City (Peacock), Chelsea vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers (Peacock), and EPL leading goal scorer Erling Haaland (14 goals in eight matches) and Manchester City v. Southampton (Peacock). Peacock will also present the Chelsea-Wolves match in Spanish. The Goal Rush whip-around show will stream live on Peacock at 10 a.m. ET, providing viewers the most compelling action in real time and on replay so they won’t miss a single goal or key play.
As Manchester City host Southampton this weekend, Haaland, who scored a hat trick in Manchester City’s 6-3 win over Manchester United last weekend, became the first player in Premier League history to score a hat trick in three straight home appearances. His 14 goals are the most by a player though their first eight appearances in a Premier League season.
At 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Harry Kane and third-place Tottenham visit fourth-place Brighton & Hove Albion on NBC, Peacock and Universo in a matchup of top-four clubs.
