Howard will be giving the ‘keeper’s views for NBC Sports.
In a first for both player and broadcaster, Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard will be commentating on the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City on Sunday for NBC.
The American will be in action for the Toffees on Saturday against Aston Villa, before swapping gloves for a microphone for the biggest game in the English top tier.
“It is the first time we will have an active player in our announce booth,” producer Pierre Moossa told NBC.
“He has recently played against both Chelsea and Manchester City and will provide the viewer with a very unique perspective on not only the game but what it is like to face these current squads on the pitch.”
Howard will probably remember the match against the Blues much more fondly than the 3-1 drubbing City handed out to the Merseyside club.
The 34-year-old kept a clean-sheet as Roberto Martinez’s side beat the west London club 1-0 at Goodison Park – Jose Mourinho’s only league defeat so far since returning to England.
The ‘keeper is probably in a good position to comment on the two sides though as Howard is now one of the most experienced players in the English top tier.
The USA international arrived at Manchester United in the summer of 2003 from New York Red Bulls and spent three years at Old Trafford before moving across Lancashire to Everton – initially on-loan.
Since then Howard has impressed for the club and has been the undisputed No.1 for the side since 2006.
