After working on Chelsea v Arsenal Arlo White, Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux will bike across London to commentate at Spurs

Fans of the Premier League in the United States will be seeing double when they tune into in the NBC Sports coverage of Saturday's matches.

After commentating on the Chelsea v Arsenal match at Stamford Bridge, kicking off at 12.30pm GMT, NBC's team of Arlo White, Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux will get on motorbike taxis and race across London for at least 15 miles to be at White Hart Lane in time for the 5:30pm kick-off of the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Middlesbrough.

Not only must the trio brave the traffic of London but also en route as a part of "Arlo, Lee and Graeme's Excellent Adventure," White, Dixon, and Le Saux have each been tasked with taking selfies at London landmarks along the way, logging their arrival time at White Hart Lane in a race to the second match.

"Although a triple game commentating weekend will be exciting in itself, I am mostly looking forward to Arlo calling the Spurs game after the dash across London on Taxi Bikes,” said Dixon. “He hates motorbikes, so rest assured Graeme and I will be calming his nerves. Not!"

"The journey between stadiums will consist of Lee and I racing to see who can get there first, having rushed to take our picture with each landmark,” said Le Saux. “Meanwhile, Arlo will beg his rider to slow down to walking pace. He will take a panorama shot and spend 10 minutes choosing a filter  before continuing at snail’s pace to White Hart Lane."

"It's tremendous for me that we are doing the Chelsea v Arsenal game first," said White. "Graeme and Lee are legends for the Blues and the Gunners. By the time they've finished signing autographs for their adoring fans afterwards outside of Stamford Bridge, I'll be in a pub near White Hart Lane, after calling Tottenham v Middlesbrough on my own!"
