Well, it looks like we don't get Peter Drury. Sky/NBC Sports are sending Drury/Champion to the Emirates.
COMMENTATORS FOR PREMIER LEAGUE “CHAMPIONSHIP SUNDAY” MATCHES LIVE ON PEACOCK & NETWORKS OF NBCUNIVERSAL THIS SUN., MAY 19 AT 11 A.M. ET - NBC Sports

If I were NBC, I would have sent Champion to the Etihad, and simulcasted their Sky coverage instead of taking the world feed.

Also, Boehly wins another WSL trophy today, but he seems to want to sell the team that is actually winning trophies.

Oxford Utd promotes from League One to the Championship.

Harry Kane finishes in 3rd.

And Union Berlin survives.

I have a friend that’s a Bolton fan that was at Wembley today. He’s devastated.

Wasn't a fan of the new Liverpool kits upon release, but they do have a very classic feel on the pitch.

Not even 20 minutes in for City to go 2-0 up on West Ham.

Another title and the inevitable FFP ruling letdown is going to be a gut punch.

Right there was the encapsulation of Salah these past few months since his return from injury - Gets the ball at the top of the 6yd box bodied up by a Wolves defender. But Mo can't create the foot of space he needs to get the shot off from point blank. Is this something that rest will help or has Salah finally lost that little extra thing that made him MO SALAH? Huge question for the club to sort out.

Damn. Mac gets spiked on the ankle with force. I don't think red is warranted - it looked worse in slo-mo, but definitely a card.

Even you couldn't have thought this was going to be a tough one. West Ham have been on vacation for a month already.
We almost lost to fucking QPR with a title on the line I reserve the right to have been shitting this one because while yes West Ham have been awful you never know

Now Robbo is down after being undercut going up for a header. Calm the fuck down, Wolves.

City being up 2-0 doesn’t even begin to convey how one-sided this has been. Possession is 83-17, shots are 13-0.

It sure is looking good. Still don’t see why I couldn’t have been nervous for some chaotic heart breaking result
I get it. I’d want to be up 5-0 before I exhaled. No Ederson sure does help as it removes the guy most likely to do something stupid.

The key word there is "almost". What Premier League game have you guys not pulled off during this run? You've won every close race, most of the time by winning your last 10 games or so.

You've come in second 3 times, and in all those seasons it was already well decided by the last week. I get that a fan is always expecting the worst, but never once have you guys given it away in match 38, even the multiple times you needed multiple goals in the last few minutes.

VVD looking like a proud big brother as Quansah celebrates that awkward tap in clash.

Man, Mo is looking cooked. Classic Salah hooks that ball right on to Elliott's boots.

Palace is absolutely whooping Villa. 5-0 -- Mateta with a hat trick, Eze with a brace. Mateta was about an inch offside away from a fourth.

It's going to be a shame seeing this team get raided before they have a full season together under Glasner.

What’s with the inflatable bananas?
City used to be a very bad team. Lots of matches played where nothing interesting would happen and City fans used to deploy a lot of gallows style humor and show up to matches in fancy dress or bring huge amounts of inflatables to matches. Basically it’s an ongoing joke

Hope Peacock stays with the post-match at Anfield. In an era where it's really tough to not be cynical about the majority of things related to sport, it's been a real pleasure having the club I support represented by Jurgen Klopp.

That interview he did a few days ago talking about the Kompany goal and how he still hates Maddison was really great. Not always the best loser but a great manager and I agree that he deserves a bit of a spotlight today. I’m glad to see the back of him but full respect for him

My feed froze for about 30 seconds after Klopp went inside, but then resumed. Was that John Henry in the sunglasses under there?
