After two weeks off to do MLS coverage and a week where International Competition took center stage and the final World Cup qualifiers were made, the English Premier League returns this weekend with 6 games being featured nationally on NBCSN & NBC. Arlo White returns to do the play-by-play for what some people are saying will be the most exciting week of matches to date. I suppose that is always subject to ones opinion. As always Westwood One will carry the matches in both English and Spanish through select radio providers and their online streams. Here's the full outline of events from NBC.
