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.
