Barclays Premier League Final Weekend Preview: Championship on the line for Liverpool, Manchester City

EPLlogoIt’s likely one 7 a.m. Sunday game will decide the season:: Manchester City-West Ham United live at 7 a.m. on NBC.

If City ties that one point is enough to clinch their second title in three years.

Those who like to channel surf can check out Liverpool-Newcastle United on NBCSN at the same time; Liverpool are the only team with a long-shot chance at the title.

Other games are all over the dial such as Southampton-Manchester United on the SyFy network, which seems apt for the Red Devils’ surreal season, I guess.

Barclays Premier League Preview: Week 36

EPLlogoWe’re getting down to crunch time in the EPL.

Live on NBC at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, relegation strugglers Norwich City will seek to take advantage of the turmoil at Manchester United this week and give interim manager Ryan Giggs some food for thought in the wake of the sacking of David Moyes. Good luck with that Canaries (and I’m a City fan).

League-leading Liverpool will seek to knock Jose Mourinho’s third-place Chelsea out of the title hunt in the game of the weekend at 6 a.m. Sunday on NBCSN.

Also, at noon Monday on NBCSN fourth-place Arsenal hosts Newcastle United.

Your complete guide to all the games this weekend is here.
