NBCSN 3 three consecutive days of doubleheaders; Wednesday’s coverage concludes with extended 75-minute postmatch ‘Goal Zone’ from Anfield

With Championship Sunday less than a week away, NBC Sports’ weekday coverage features three consecutive days of NBCSN doubleheaders, starting today, Monday, July 20, and concluding Wednesday, July 22, at 3:15 p.m. ET with a top-three matchup on NBCSN and Universo – as Jurgen Klopp and champions Liverpool host Frank Lampard and third-place Chelsea, who would be guaranteed a top-four finish and a spot in next season’s Champions League with a win.

Immediately following the match at Anfield, Liverpool will be presented with medals and raise the Premier League Trophy – their first in U.K.’s top flight in 30 years and 19th overall.

Arlo White and former Chelsea player Graeme Le Saux will call Wednesday’s match and cover the postmatch festivities from Anfield during a special, extended 75-minute “Goal Zone.” Following the trophy ceremony, Arsenal legend Lee Dixon will be on-site conducting interviews with Liverpool players and manager Klopp.

Viewers are encouraged to share their experience of the Liverpool v. Chelsea match and postmatch festivities using the hashtag #LFCatHome this Wednesday.

The trophy ceremony will take place on a special podium built on the Kop, surrounded by fan banners in the heart of where Liverpool supporters usually sit and stand. Sir Kenny Dalglish, the manager of the Reds when they last won the title in 1990, will also take part.

On Sunday, Olivier Giroud continued his strong form in front of goal, scoring in the Blues’ 3-1 win against Manchester United in the FA Cup semifinal, which sets up an FA Cup final with rival Arsenal. The Reds’ bid for a 100-point season came to an end after a 2-1 loss against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium last Wednesday.

The weekday match slate kicks off at noon each day on NBCSN with “Premier League Live.” Today, eighth-place Sheffield United host Everton at 1 p.m. on NBCSN, followed by seventh-place Wolverhampton Wanderers hosting Crystal Palace at 3:15 p.m. Also today, Peacock and NBC Sports Gold will present exclusive live coverage of the Brighton & Hove Albion v. Newcastle match at 1 p.m.

On Tuesday, second-place Manchester City visit Watford at 1 p.m. on NBCSN and Universo, followed by Aston Villa hosting 10th-place Arsenal at 3:15 p.m. on NBCSN. Wednesday’s doubleheader kicks off with fifth-place Manchester United hosting West Ham at 1 p.m. on NBCSN. With wins in their final two matches this season, the Red Devils would be guaranteed a top-four finish and a spot in the group stage of the Champions League next season.

Rebecca Lowe hosts “Goal Zone,” “Premier League Mornings,” and “Premier League Live,” joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe, and former USMNT player Kyle Martino.

“The Men In Blazers Show,” hosted by soccer personalities Michael Davies and Roger Bennett, will air at 5:30 p.m. Monday on NBCSN. Davies and Bennett will recap the 2019-20 Premier League season, featuring a tribute to Manchester City midfielder David Silva.
