This weekend the Premier League enters Week 2 and after an incredible opening weekend, plenty of storylines are already brewing ahead of the second slate of games.

So make sure you watch NBC Sports Network for our feature games, and remember watch every single second of every single game live online via NBC Sports Live Extra and the NBC Sports Live Extra App.

And below that are the details of where and when you can watch every game in Week 2, and you will definitely want to bookmark the NBC Sports Live Extra page, as that’s where you can watch every single Premier League game this season. Via your TV you can watch the games live on Premier League Extra Time.

So, here’s a quick look at what stories to watch out for in the games this weekend.


Fulham v. Arsenal (Craven Cottage) 7:45 am EST: *NBCSN

The Gunners need to bounce back from an opening day defeat to Villa, but a tough trip across London to face Fulham isn’t the easiest game, especially after a long midweek trip to Istanbul after beating Fenerbache 3-0. Anything but a win will see Wenger’s men under severe pressure.

Southampton v. Sunderland (St. Mary’s) 10:00 am EST: *NBCSN

A closely fought encounter between two ambitious and rambunctious managers. The aim for the Saints and the Black Cats was to avoid relegation last term, now they want to push on. Southampton’s youngster vs. Altidore and co. will be a great advert to see how far they’ve both come.

Newcastle v. West Ham United (St. James’ Park) 10:00 am EST: *Premier League Extra Time

Newcastle were hammered against Manchester City but will be hoping it’s a different story when the West Ham come to town. The Hammers won comfortably vs. Cardiff last weekend and could cause the Magpies plenty of trouble. Watch out as West Ham manager Sam Allardyce returns to his former club along with plenty of former Newcastle players.

Everton v. West Brom (Goodison Park) 10:00 am EST: *Premier League Extra Time

The first chance for Everton fans to see Roberto Martinez‘ attacking revolution up close. Big story in this one will be about Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini. After Manchester United had a bid rejected for the duo this week, could it be their final game at home for the Toffees?

Hull City v. Norwich City (KC Stadium) 10:00 am EST: *Premier League Extra Time

A really winnable game for Hull sandwiched in between that opening day away defeat to Chelsea and a tough trip to Manchester City next week. Expect a tough game and watch out for the Tigers two combative midfielders, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore, plenty of tackles flying around here.

Stoke City v. Crystal Palace (Britannia Stadium) 10:00 am EST: *Premier League Extra Time

Both teams need a win. Badly. Mark Hughes men were outplayed at Liverpool but almost snatched a draw, this is a must win to get the home fans on his side in Hughes’ first home game in charge since taking over. While Ian Holloway lamented his sides lack of belief vs. Spurs last weekend, can the Eagles cause a big upset at the Britannia?

Aston Villa v. Liverpool (Villa Park) 12:30 pm EST *NBC

What a corker this should be in Birmingham on Saturday. Brendan Rodgers‘ free-flowing side take their style and verve to a pacey, young and confident Villa outfit. A win on opening day against Arsenal and almost nabbing a draw at Chelsea on Wednesday is an indicator of how much the Villans have improved. But the Reds mean business this season. Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Villa’s Christian Benteke are the men to watch in this one.


Tottenham Hotspur v. Swansea City (White Hart Lane) 11:00am EST *NBCSN

Will we get a glimpse of Gareth Bale? Probably not, so this game will be all about how Spurs look for the future without the Welshman as his move to Real Madrid edges ever closer. Swansea pose a much better test for Tottenham than Palace did last weekend, can Roberto Soldado becomes the new hero for Spurs fans?

Cardiff City v. Man City (Cardiff City Stadium) 11:00am EST *Premier League Extra Time

A real humdinger down on the banks of the River Taff in the Welsh capital. Cardiff’s first-ever Premier League home game will see a lively atmosphere dominate but Man City will look to punish any slack defending and Manuel Pellegrini’s new-look side looked superb against Newcastle.


Manchester United v. Chelsea (Old Trafford) 3:00pm EST *NBCSN

Here it is, the first real biggy of the season. José Mourinho heads to Old Trafford to face David Moyes in United’s first-home game since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. This will be a cracker, so many storylines here. Who will will the battle of wits between Mourinho and Moyes? Will this be Rooney’s final game for United before he signs for Chelsea? Can Robin van Persie get the better of John Terry? Watch it all unfold on the NBC Sports Network.

    What does NBC have schedule on Sunday around 11am that is unable to show the Mancity game? Is this match not attractive enough to be put on NBC /NBCSN or did they have previous schedule obligations that is why it was thrown to the Premier League Extra section?

      I agree, the CIty game should be on NBC rather than whatever other BS they are playing at 10 A.M. on a Sunday morning.

        What a surprise. noodle and doodle is more important than airing the man city game

    I hate to complain about NBC’s coverage, but I’m pissed about this. All I want is to watch City live every weekend which I can’t thanks to my cable provider and NBC. If this was Fox, I could at least watch them on delay. Premier league extra time does nothing for me if I can’t access it. Please fix this problem NBC.

    Live Extra fixes it. All games are available live online.

  4. suckittrebek76 - Aug 24, 2013 at 12:16 AM

    Not for time Warner subscribers

    I still don’t get what this Extra Time package is. I get NBC Sports Network but I see no evidence of overflow channels.

    I have to say that while I was quite excited about NBC getting the Premier League rights, so far the availability of matches on tv has been a major disappointment.

    For one, NBC chooses to air shows like “IndyCar 36”, “Notre Dame Football”, “Motocross”, rather than airing replays of Premier League matches? Seriously?

    And I thought NBC was going to be taking advantage of all their different channels at their disposal to air matches? If they’re only going to be airing one match at a time, what a waste.

    I really thought that this was going to be awesome, that I’d be able to watch all the Premier League action I wanted. Sorry but watching streaming matches online should be a fallback option, not the primary method for seeing games, especially without them being on-demand.

    NBC has better production quality but I got to see more matches with Fox Soccer – and that’s all that truly matters.

    Nbc seems to really be messing this up. I used to be able to count on a full slate of games Saturday mornings. Other games were aired on delay that were easy to find and record. Now it seems games are scattered and arbitrarily aired here and there.
    Please take a look nbc, Fox Soccer finally had it together and was gaining a fan base. Don’t spend triple the amount they were paying to air epl soccer and then not make epl a priority.

  7. footballer4ever - Aug 24, 2013 at 10:19 AM

    I have a concern noone seems to clarify. NBC gained the rights to broadcast the EPL games in English and in Spanish, yet only a fraction of it will be shown on Telemundo/Mun2. Why not take advantage of using SAP during the NBC/NBCSN matches for the fans who prefer to watch and listen their football in spanish which can only increase the tv ratings.
