A new month means the World Cup draws even closer. By the time this weekend’s games conclude, we will be just two weeks away from the first start in Qatar. So this is the penultimate weekend of Premier League action before the Boxing Day fixtures.
There are some tasty accessories on the calendar for the first weekend of November. Two top three teams are in action in crucial games against other ‘big six’ teams.
They are both on Sunday. The first game that day is Arsenal’s trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. Arsenal remain top of the table after a dominant win against Nottingham Forest. The three points came as a huge sigh of relief after drawing against Southampton. Chelsea, on the other hand, is in a bit of a spiral. Two points from their last three games, including a frankly embarrassing loss at the hands of a strong Brighton side. It looks like Arsenal will be the Gunners’ second loss of the season.
Arsenal’s north London rival Tottenham are at home this weekend. The rival that concerns us is a frustrated Liverpool. Currently ninth in the Premier League table, Liverpool is coming off consecutive defeats. Both came against humble teams, Nottingham Forest and Leeds United. Now, Liverpool goes to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where Spurs have five wins and one loss in six games.
Finally, Unai Emery returns to the Premier League fold this weekend as the boss of Aston Villa. However, he has a tough task ahead of him as Villa’s host Manchester United. United are unbeaten in their last five, most recently picking up a win against West Ham.
Remember, the clocks changed in Europe last weekend. Meanwhile, the clocks are turning here in the United States this weekend. Therefore, Saturday’s matches are delayed by one hour from their usual kick-off times.
However, the usual content is still there for NBC’s coverage of the Premier League. However, it is somewhat rarer than usual. Premier League Mornings on Saturday start at 10am. Then the busy kickoff list is in the 11 a.m. window that day, when there are four games simultaneously.
GOAL RUSH is available on Peacock Premium during all four Saturday 11am games.
On Sunday, the only coverage in between is before and after the Tottenham-Liverpool game at 11:30 a.m. That means no Premier League Mornings before the Chelsea-Arsenal game, and no live Premier League before the three games at 9 p.m. A.M
Also, the only Premier League match in 4K this weekend is Chelsea-Arsenal on Sunday morning. Make sure you have the correct subscriptions and hardware to watch the most competitive soccer league in higher resolution.
