When: Saturday, September 24, 2016 - 9.30AM PT/12.30PM ET/5.30PM BT
Where: Emirates Stadium, London
Importance: This first match against one of Arsenal’s main title rivals can be construed as the first game in the 2016/17 Narrative Cup, if you’re so inclined; if Arsenal do well, This Could Be The Year, and if Arsenal stumble, it’s As You Were For The Always In Fourth Place Arsenal. Even though none of that is all that accurate, that’s where we are as a soccer-watching species now, because that’s the way it works.
In all seriousness, though, games against title rivals are always important.
How to watch: In the US, NBC Sports Network, Telemundo, or NBC Sports Live Extra. If you want a little different look at the game, you can also use the “Tactical Cam” stream, which provides a static, wide-angle view of the pitch so you can get a better look at team setup and movement.
