Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 21: Open Thread

Today’s two Premier League matches include high-flying Newcastle United and Arsenal, both against recently promoted sides — QPR and Swansea respectively.

A win for Newcastle and they’ll leapfrog over Liverpool into sixth position in the league. A win for Arsenal and they’ll be just one point behind fourth placed Chelsea. Of course, QPR and Swansea will have something to say about that. We have Mark Hughes in his first game in charge of Queens Park Rangers, while Swansea will be playing in its first Sunday 11am ET/4pm GMT match of the season. Expect rapturous crowds both at St James’ Park in Newcastle and at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea. The home support in both matches could be the twelfth man to help spur their teams on.

Plus, we can look forward to seeing Thierry Henry possibly playing again for Arsenal. And whether Swansea’s new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson will make his Premier League debut for the Swans (the player was acquired from Hoffenheim and is a free kick specialist as well as promising attacking midfielder). Swansea’s Josh McEachran isn’t joining the club on loan until tomorrow, so he won’t factor in today’s game.

As always, feel free to post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.
