Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 30: Open Thread
Following Saturday’s action, we have two big matches in the Premier League today, on Sunday. The first one kicks off between Sunderland and Liverpool at the Stadium Of Light.
The prospect of this match still instantly reminds me of floating red beach balls. But after Tottenham’s slip-up Saturday morning, Liverpool will be seeing this as a golden opportunity to narrow the number of points between themselves and Spurs, as they attempt to move into fifth place. Sunderland will be hoping to move back into the top half of the league after Everton leapfrogged them yesterday.
Chelsea isn’t that far ahead right now in fourth place, so the match later this morning between the Blues and Manchester City, in third place, is one of incredible importance to both sides. There’s a lot on the line to play for. Sometimes that can mean a tense match with both teams afraid of making mistakes. But, if we get an early goal from either side, it’ll force the opposition to change their tactics and we could then have a game on our hands.
Arsenal, right now, remind me of a wounded animal (despite their late comeback on Saturday), so Manchester City has a prime opportunity to narrow the gap with the Gunners and make a statement in the Premier League. Chelsea has too much history (of late), pride and world-class players to let that happen. But let’s see what happens on the pitch!
