Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 5: Open Thread

 

man united chelsea2 Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 5: Open Thread

Without a doubt, today’s the biggest Premier League day of the season so far. Tottenham against Liverpool get things started early with an enticing match at White Hart Lane.

That’s followed by Fulham against the seemingly indestructible Manchester City. Poor Martin Jol couldn’t have picked a worse time to play City. At the same time as the match at Craven Cottage, Sunderland takes on Stoke City.

And last but not least we have Manchester United against Chelsea at Old Trafford in a game which may tell us where Chelsea stands in this title race.

Not bad for a birthday present for me. The promise of four excellent Premier League matches.

The early match between Tottenham and Liverpool erupted with a wonderful goal by Luka Modric. Let’s hope the rest of the match can maintain or exceed that level of excitement.

As in previous weeks, we want to open up EPL Talk to your rants, raves, observations and questions. Feel free to post your opinions in the comments section below. And don’t forget to share your thoughts about the launch of Premier League soccer on FOX Broadcasting Company today (either at 2pm ET or 4:30pm ET, depending on your local market).
