Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 9: Open Thread

httpv://youtu.be/qnaH24608qM

The biggest match of the Premier League season kicks off this morning between Manchester United and Manchester City. This could give us an indication of who will win the Premier League. Not mathematically by any means, but whoever wins today will have a huge psychological edge and confidence boost for the next several weeks. It is the biggest Manchester derby in decades.

Here are the starting lineups:

Manchester United: De Gea, Evra, Ferdinand, Evans, Smalling, Fletcher, Anderson, Nani, Young, Rooney, Welbeck

Manchester City: Hart, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Barry, Y. Toure, Milner, Silva, Aguero, Balotelli

Ferguson has picked a very attack-minded line-up, as has Mancini. City was supposed to have Nigel De Jong start, but Yaya Toure has taken his place instead — which is a very promising sign for viewers who want to see an attacking match.

It’s important to note that there are four other Premier League matches being played today, too. Arsenal plays Stoke at the Emirates, Fulham is against Everton, Blackburn battles Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers plays Chelsea.

You know the drill. Before, during or after the matches today, feel free to post your questions, comments, rants, raves and feedback in the comments section below. This promises to be a spectacular Premier League Sunday. I hope you enjoy it!
