The English Premier League gets underway on August 13, opening with a single game when newly-promoted Brentford will take on Arsenal at 3:00 p.m. ET. That will be followed by a slew of other matches throughout the weekend as all 20 EPL teams will be in action for a full slate.
EPL games are usually easy to find on TV, and this season will be no exception. NBC will be showing the majority of the matches, kicking off with big pre-match shows for the opening weekend. You can find most games live on TV on NBCSN and Universo or Telemundo, but you can also stream the games on Peacock, NBC’s exclusive streaming service. Some matches will also be shown on the USA Network on TV, as well as streaming on fubo TV, Sling TV, and Hulu + Live TV as well.
Manchester City are the favorites to win yet again this season, as not only are they the current title holders but they’ve also won the honors three of the last four seasons. They recently brought on Jack Grealish from Aston Villa to add even more scoring talent to their attack.
They’re followed by Chelsea who have bolstered their attack by bringing back prolific scorer Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan. The Belgian international star originally signed with Chelsea in 2011 as an 18-year-old, where he only made 10 appearances while spending the majority of his time on loan to both West Brom and Everton. Now that he’s a proven talent and a giant star, Chelsea will look to utilize his scoring prowess to propel them to the top of the league.
