Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 13: Open Thread

4339596439 cfc96e5a47 Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 13: Open Thread

I’m really looking forward to watching today’s games. There’s quite an assortment of intriguing fixtures kicking off with the early match between Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers. Tony Pulis’s side is suffering. Looking at the form table for the last six games in the Premier League, only Wigan Athletic have a worse record than the Potters. With Blackburn, meanwhile, they’ve got the third worst record in the form table. Both teams are obviously desperate for a win today, which should make it a blood-and-thunder match.

Then we have six Premier League matches to choose from at 10am ET/3pm GMT. Most eyes will be on Manchester United taking on Newcastle United at Old Trafford, but there’ll also be keen interest in Chelsea against Wolves (Andre Villas-Boas’s side must win that win, or will they?), West Brom against Tottenham (a win for the Lilywhites at the Hawthorns will send another message to the top four that Spurs are serious), Norwich against QPR (the battle of two of the promoted sides), Bolton against Everton (which Bolton will show up?) and, last but not least, Sunderland against Wigan (a battle between two teams near the foot of the table).

The final match of the day is Arsenal against Fulham. This should be a straightforward win for Arsenal, but at some point this season Martin Jol’s side will need to wake up and mount a challenge. They’re fifth from bottom and can’t keep losing games.
