After an exhausting but exhilarating day of Premier League football yesterday (especially after Swansea’s emotional, for me, draw), we have the prospect of three Premier League matches to look forward to. First, don’t forget that if you live in the United States, the clocks have gone back one hour.
The first game to kick off our Sunday features Wolverhampton Wanderers against Wigan Athletic. Any game these days involving Wolves is a must-see, especially at home. There’ll be a ton of pressure on Wolves to get the early goal. If Wigan score first, will the Wolves supporters give the players and Mick McCarthy the encouragement and support to lift the team? For Wigan, meanwhile, they have to get a point or, better yet, all three points. If Wigan want to stay up this season, getting a win against Wolves would be a perfect test.
Following the Wolves game is Bolton against Stoke. And then the third and final match of the day is the London derby between Fulham and Tottenham, which will see manager Martin Jol facing the old side he used to manage. Tottenham’s run of good form is bound to end sooner or later. Could they come undone at Craven Cottage?
You know the drill. Before, during and after the games today, post your comments, questions, rants and raves in the comments section below. Spoilers are allowed.
