Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 23: Open Thread

white hart lane Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 23: Open Thread

Depending on who you support and how passionate you are about your club, I’m sure there would be plenty of disagreement regarding which is the biggest Premier League match of the today. With Sunderland and Newcastle United as well as Birmingham City versus Aston Villa already in the bag, our attention today now turns to Liverpool against Everton followed by Tottenham Hotspur versus Manchester United.

Which is the biggest match? It all depends on your party line. But for me it’s Spurs against Manchester United. Derbies are typically niggly affairs, so in the spirit of entertainment and goals, I believe we’ll see far more of that variety in the game at White Hart Lane. Besides, it’ll be a good barometer of Tottenham’s place in the Premier League. Are they really as good as their league position suggests? And will they ever be able to compete against the likes of United who so often have their number.

That’s not to take anything away from the other matches of the day. Liverpool against Everton has already started off brightly and I’m sure there’s plenty more in store. And the earlier matches between Sunderland and Newcastle as well as Birmingham versus Aston Villa were very enjoyable.

On one of those lovely lazy Sundays, feel free to use the comments below as an open thread to discuss your questions, observations and rants.
