Telemundo Deportes’ award-winning team of experts will provide play-by-play commentary led by Andrés Cantor, Sammy Sadovnik, Copán Álvarez, Eduardo Biscayart, Carlos Hermosillo and Manuel Sol.

As Premier League returns with no fans in the stadiums, Telemundo Deportes’ production will offer viewers an enhanced experience, with the opportunity to hear everything said by players, referees and coaches on the field. For the first time, natural sound will be clearly captured by ground level microphones and delivered as an audio option available via SAP in all the games, along with Spanish play-by-play and commentary. As the main audio option, for those viewers that prefer crowd sounds following live-action, the audio will include the excitement of atmospheric pre-recorded audio provided by Premier League and EA Sports.

To complement the match coverage, Emmy-nominated sports analysis show, La Liga Premier: Tercer Tiempo returns this Sunday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m. ET to recap the week’s action live on Telemundo. If Liverpool is crowned champions this week, Thursday’s action will be followed by a special Tercer Tiempo edition at 5:30 p.m. ET on Universo. Each matchup will be preceded by the pre-game show La Liga Premier Extra. In addition, TelemundoDeportes.com and the Telemundo Deportes social media platforms will complement the coverage with extensive content, video highlights, stats, features, interviews, and news and updates throughout the season.

Premier Leagues’ return to Telemundo delivered 3 of 5 most-watched sporting events on Spanish-language TV this past weekend -- Liverpool vs. Everton was #1 with 272,000 total viewers, followed by Aston Villa vs. Chelsea (#3 with 173,000) and West Ham vs. Wolves (#5 with 114,000.)
