EPL commentators on NBC: May 15 to May 19

Manchester City looks to be humming along in the league. With just two games remaining, the Sky Blues are well on their way to a fourth EPL crown in the last five seasons.

Liverpool, the other dog in the race, is off in the league this weekend. Rather, the Reds take on Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on Saturday afternoon.

To open space for the FA Cup and Eurovision Song Contest, all of the Premier League games on the weekend are set for Sunday and Monday. Plus, there are midweek games to get set for decision day on Sunday, May 22.

This weekend, the best games to watch in the Premier League revolve around the relegation battle. Sure, the West Ham game against Manchester City has implications on the top half of the table. However, Manchester City’s torrent pace looks insurmountable for most sides.

Everton, which is nearing safety in the Premier League, hosts Brentford. Everton is on a roll of three games unbeaten, and the light of survival in the league is in sight. Burnley takes on a desperate Tottenham side coming off of the North London Derby. Meanwhile, Leeds faces Brighton in need of points to maintain hope of staying up.

Midweek, there are more great games to make time for. The Everton-Crystal Palace game could very well be Everton’s shining moment of survival. That game is set for Thursday afternoon.

At the same time, Chelsea hosts Leicester City in a rematch of last season’s FA Cup Final. Neither side is in need of anything too dramatic based on current standings. Still, it is a good game between interesting teams that perhaps failed to meet expectations this season, however lofty those were.

NBC coverage of the Premier League

Rebecca Lowe is in charge of Sunday’s Premier League coverage. However, there is no pregame coverage for the 7 a.m. kickoff or the 9 a.m. window. Rather, a lone Premier League Live at 11 a.m. gets viewers prepared for Newcastle against Arsenal.

Unfortunately, Goal Rush is not on the schedule for Sunday. There are five games in the 9 a.m. window that day, which would shape up perfectly for the whip-around show.

Also, there are no games scheduled in 4K for May 15 through 19.

For the midweek games, it is business as usual for NBC. Premier League Live and Goal Zone precede and succeed game coverage on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
