premier league logo1 Premier League: August 24, 2008 (Your Running Commentary)Get ready for another Super Sunday of English Premier League matches.

Chelsea visits Wigan, where the Blues infamously dented their Premier League title hopes in April when Emile Heskey scored a dramatic late equalizer. Manchester City, meanwhile, will hope to bring a smile to their fans by winning their first home match of the new season.

Here are today’s games:

  • Wigan Athletic v Chelsea, 8:30am ET/1:30pm UK
  • Manchester City v West Ham United, 11am ET/4pm UK

If you’ll be watching – or have watched – today’s matches, please share your thoughts, insight, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below. No chat today. It may return next week.

  1. Blue Evertonian says:

    Wow …. cracker of a FK from Deco. They look too good for anyone this season :-(

  2. I dunno…Wigan have had their chances. Chelsea are not dominating this game by any stretch.
    It was a nice free kick but the keeper should have got something on it to be honest.
    Usual sluggish display from the big four after midweek internationals…a good betting angle to look at as we get into WC qualifers

  3. Blue Evertonian says:

    Yeah, after that start I thought Wigan were in for it but they have done well!

  4. Its been a poor game overall since the goal…Chelsea are just about deserving of the three points…more to do with the lack of any attacking ideas from Wigan than superior play from Chelsea.
    Yer man Daniel de Ridder is shite

  5. Wigan have had more goal attempts and shots on target than Chelsea!

  6. Sturridge starting for Citeh today!

  7. Ryan says:

    Hope Micah’s okay.
