NBC is in the second season of a three-year contract to televise the Barclays Premier League in the United States of America and last Saturday’s match between Manchester United and Arsenal at the Emirates attracted a national record views of 1.4million.

The game, which was commentated by Arlo White and Lee Dixon, saw United beat Arsenal with an own-goal from Kieran Gibbs and a breakaway goal from Wayne Rooney

United won the match 2-1, and it will go down in history as the most-watched Premier League game in US history.

NBC revealed the match on November 22 averaged 1.41 million viewers, topping the 1.38 million who viewed Manchester United’s 3-3 draw against Chelsea on Fox in 2012.

In addition, the match ranks as the fifth-most streamed Premier League match in history, with 81,000 visits and 63,000 uniques on NBC Sports Live Extra.
