This Saturday TNT Sports, the new name for the sports JV between BT and Warner Bros. Discovery, kicks off its inaugural season of Premier League coverage at the Emirates Stadium with last season’s runners-up, Arsenal, hosting Nottingham Forest.

This week, pre-match coverage will also include an exclusive interview with Ferdinand and Arsenal’s record summer signing, Declan Rice.
Live coverage of the match starts at 12:30, with the commentary team led by Darren Fletcher alongside  McCoist and  Breach reporting from the sideline. TNT Sports’ coverage of the match will be capped by post-game analysis from Hipgrave, Ferdinand, Cole and McCoist.
