STAMFORD, Conn. – January 2, 2019 – To set up tomorrow’s massive matchup on NBCSN between 3rd-place Manchester City and 1st-place Liverpool, NBC Sports will present wall-to-wall, pre-match coverage live from the pitch at Etihad Stadium. Arlo White and Lee Dixon, who will call the match, will be joined on NBCSN’s Premier League Live at 2 p.m. ET – a full hour before kickoff – by England Women’s national team manager, and former Manchester United standout Phil Neville to capture the live player scene at a pitch-side desk.
NBC Sports will utilize on-air teams in the U.S. and the U.K. leading up to the match.

Viewers will have a front-row seat to player warm-up coverage, starting when players take the pitch (roughly 2:15 p.m. ET) until they head back into the dressing room (roughly 2:45 p.m. ET), and then again as the players return to the tunnel just prior to kickoff. Coverage will include a breakdown of all 22 starting players in a pre-match “on the pitch” segment.
NBCSN and Universo will televise the match at 3 p.m. ET.
