STAMFORD, Conn. – Dec. 3, 2019 – NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage continues this week with five days of matches over the next six days, highlighted by Manchester United v. Tottenham this Wednesday and the Manchester Derby this Saturday, both on NBCSN.

Midweek Premier League action returns this week, with NBC Sports presenting a full 10-match slate from today, Tuesday, Dec. 3, through Thursday, Dec. 5. The midweek matches are highlighted by Manchester United v. Tottenham at 2:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday on NBCSN and Universo, as Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford, where he managed Manchester United from 2016-2018.

On Saturday (12:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo), Manchester United move on from facing their former manager to visiting rival Manchester City in the historic Manchester Derby.

Mourinho has led Tottenham to two consecutive Premier League victories, including a 3-2 victory over Bournemouth last weekend. Dele Alli scored twice in the win as Tottenham moved into fifth place in the league. Manchester United sit in ninth place, two points behind Tottenham, as they look to close the gap. United drew with Aston Villa, 2-2, on Sunday and haven’t lost in the Premier League since a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth on November 2.

Premier League Live kicks off today’s coverage at 2 p.m. ET on NBCSN, followed by third-place Manchester City visiting Burnley at 3:15 p.m. ET. Manchester City drew with Newcastle, 2-2, last Saturday after conceding a late 88th-minute goal. The first match of the week begins on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET as Crystal Palace host Bournemouth on NBC Sports Gold.

Three of Premier League’s top four clubs – first-place Liverpool, second-place Leicester City and fourth-place Chelsea – play on NBC Sports Gold this week.
