Manchester City are seeking their third consecutive Premier League title — it’s a feat that’s been accomplished by only one other club in Premier League history — and they’re already among the top clubs after three matchdays.
But they’re trailing Arsenal, who have a chance to make it four wins out of four to start the campaign when they host Fulham on Saturday at the Emirates.
Brighton vs. Leeds United will be a battle between two in-form teams, while Brentford vs. Everton will make Toffees supporters nervous. Wolves are in the bottom three, but they have a tough home game against surging Newcastle United. Leicester City could be in early trouble if they can’t get points from their trip to Chelsea.
Premier League fans in the United States have the luxury of having every single match available to watch across NBC’s various broadcast and streaming platforms.
The Premier League also has a new lead voice in the United States, with NBC’s coverage making a change on the mic for the 2022-23 English top-flight season. The change comes alongside NBC’s new rights package, with a $2.7 billion deal signed in November 2021 and into effect this season.

What happened to NBCSN?
NBC Sports chairman Pete Bevacqua first announced the shutdown of NBCSN to employees in a memo on January 22, 2021, and then formally made it public later in the year.
NBC has been tight-lipped on the exact reason why NBCSN is being shut down, only calling it “part of a larger transition” in the internal memo.
It’s widely speculated that the shutdown of NBCSN is part of the company’s desire to push more sports content to its Peacock streaming service, hoping to entice fans to pay for a monthly subscription.
The network was first launched in 1995 as the Outdoor Life Network (OLN), carrying mainly outdoor sports, and then was rebranded to Versus (2006) with the acquisition of other sports properties, before ultimately becoming NBCSN in 2012.
Who is commentating on Premier League matches?
The main play-by-play commentator for NBC’s Premier League coverage in the 2022-23 season is Peter Drury.
Drury is in his first season as lead commentator for NBC’s Premier League coverage, replacing Arlo White who was not re-signed after the expiration of his contract. White was the lead commentator for NBC’s Premier League coverage since the inception of NBC’s rights deal with the Premier League in 2012.
The 54-year-old Drury is considered one of the top soccer commentators in the world, having called FIFA, UEFA, and other top competitions since the mid-1990s. Drury began his career at BBC Radio Leeds in 1990 where he called Leeds United games during the club’s run of European competition.
When will the Premier League break for the 2022 World Cup?
Leagues around Europe will have to stop midseason for the 2022 World Cup, which has been moved to the winter to accommodate the climate in host country Qatar. The summer months in Qatar are boiling hot and unsuitable for sporting competition, necessitating the move to the winter.
The Premier League season will pause after Matchweek 16, which ends on November 13, 2022.
The 2022 World Cup begins on November 21 and finishes on December 18. Premier League games will then restart on December 26, 2022, the day after Christmas.
Who won the Premier League in 2021-22?
Manchester City are defending champions of the Premier League in England, having won the title on the last day of the season.
Pep Guardiola led the club to its second straight league title in dramatic fashion, defeating Aston Villa 3-2 on the final day of the campaign to secure the title, finishing two points above challengers Liverpool.
The Reds, meanwhile, came up just short, having pushed Man City to the brink in league play. Liverpool also fell just short in the Champions League, falling to Real Madrid in the final. The Reds did, however, take home the FA Cup and EFL Cup trophies.
