On Monday, the Premier League 2013 live stream and TV schedule brings forth a matchup for United States fans to enjoy as Manchester City takes on Newcastle United. This will be the first game for these two teams in the EPL season, as they'll look to get started off on the right foot for the campaign ahead. U.S. viewers can see the soccer game live streaming thanks to the NBC Sports network and website.
According to a SkySports report from Aug. 19, today's game will feature the debut of several important summer signings for Manchester City as they look to try to reclaim the Premier League title. They include Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic. Sergio Aguero has recently overcome a knee injury and will also look to have playing time in this opening matchup. In addition to that, Man. City has a brand new manager in Manuel Pellegrini. The Chilean club manager took over for Roberto Mancini this past June. Manchester City finished second to Manchester United in the 2012-13 campaign, with 23 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses, good for 78 points. Man. U had 89 points with 28 wins, 5 draws and just 5 losses.
As for Newcastle United, they were a completely different story and nearly were relegated in the previous campaign. The team finished at sixteenth out of twenty clubs, with an overall record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 19 losses. Opponents outscored them by 23 goals overall. It was certainly a disappointing campaign after finishing in fifth just a season before that. Unfortunately for Newcastle, one of their few signings, Remy, will be out of the game today due to his nagging calf injury. Jonas Gutierrez appears ready to go for this opening matchup of their season.
Today's Manchester City vs. Newcastle United game has a start time for U.S. fans of 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The game will be televised on NBC Sports Network via cable or satellite providers. To see this matchup live streaming online, viewers should head over to the NBC Sports Live Extra website which has been showing the Barclay's Premier League games since the start of the season.
