Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 36: Open Thread
Six hours of continuous Premier League action is not a bad way to begin a Sunday. Kicking off at 7am ET is the West Midlands derby between Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion. Needless to say, three points are vital for Mick McCarthy’s side today against a West Brom team that continues to float up the table.
Following the early kick-off is the 9am match between Stoke City and Arsenal. Regular readers of EPL Talk will know that Stoke City supporters are really looking forward to this one and will raise a ruckus at the Britannia Stadium, one of the loudest grounds in the Premier League. Arsenal will want to grab an early goal in this one and kill the game off early. This match could end up being the most entertaining of the day.
Third and finally is Manchester United against Chelsea, which is always a massive fixture and is even more so today with the outcome having a profound impact on the Premier League title race. In this particular match, I’ll be glad to see it kick off so the talking can be done on the pitch. There’s been a lot of comments made by both Chelsea fans and Manchester United fans this week about referee Howard Webb and how his appointment has already sealed the fate of the match before it’s kicked off. I think that’s balderdash.
You know the drill. Before, during or after the Premier League matches today, use the thread below to rant, rave, question or observe anything Premier League-related. Enjoy your Saturday of football, Premier League style.
