NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage continues this weekend with 12 hours of programming, highlighted by six matches, including Manchester City’s first victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since 1993 and Manchester United snapping a four-game Manchester Derby losing streak in April 2015.

Saturday’s classic matches on NBCSN feature 30-minute versions of some of the most memorable games in Premier League history. The games begin at 10 a.m. ET, as Manchester United suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premier League after losing 3-1 to Liverpool at Anfield in March 2011. The game was highlighted by Dirk Kuyt, who scored the first and only hat trick of his Liverpool career.

At 10:30 a.m. ET, watch Everton’s furious comeback against Manchester United in April 2012, when the Toffees held the Red Devils to a thrilling 4-4 draw at Old Trafford. Steven Pienaar‘s late equalizer capped the eight-goal thriller and blew the 2011-12 title race wide open.

Then at 11 a.m. ET, NBCSN will look back on Arsenal putting a dent in Liverpool’s top-four hopes for the 2014-15 season, after defeating the Reds, 4-1, at Emirates Stadium on April 4, 2015. Goals from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez – who all scored within eight first-half minutes – and Olivier Giroud led the Gunners to their seventh consecutive league victory.

Saturday’s encore matches culminate at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN, as Manchester City stunned Premier League leaders Chelsea, 4-2, on Feb. 27, 2010. In the six-goal thriller, Carlos Tevez and Craig Bellamy scored two goals each to lead City to their first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1993.

Full event encores of some of the most unforgettable Premier League matches continue this Sunday at 8 a.m. ET on NBCSN as Manchester United snapped a four-game losing streak against Manchester City on April 12, 2015. Under wet conditions at Old Trafford, United defeated City, 4-2, putting them four points ahead of their rivals in the table.

Sunday’s matches conclude at 10 a.m. ET on NBCSN, with Liverpool handing Antonio Conte his first defeat as Chelsea’s head coach. The Reds defeated the Blues, 2-1, at Stamford Bridge in September 2016. Liverpool jumped out to a two-goal lead thanks to Dejan Lovren‘s neat finish and Jordan Henderson‘s superb long-range strike.

Every Thursday across NBC Sports’ digital properties, including NBC Sports’ YouTube channel, NBCSports.com, and the NBC Sports app, members of the Premier League on NBC team will provide commentary as they look back on classic Premier League matches. Tomorrow, Robbie Earle and Lee Dixon offer special present-day commentary, sharing stories and discussing their rivalry, on the September 1992 Wimbledon-Arsenal match – in which Earle scored a late winner to beat Dixon’s Arsenal in the inaugural Premier League season.
