If you live in the United States, hopefully you’ve remembered to move your clocks forward one hour this morning. With the U.S. Daylight Savings Time in full effect, the two big matches kick off at 10am ET today. Manchester United hosts West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford, while at the same time Manchester City plays Swansea at the Liberty Stadium in South Wales. This could be another typical Sunday with both teams winning. But, on the other hand, West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City are two teams who can play football and could spring a surprise, having a major impact on the Premier League title race.
Manchester City starting lineup: Hart, Richards, Savic, Kolo Toure, Clichy, Barry, de Jong, Yaya Toure, Nasri, Silva, Balotelli.
Manchester United starting lineup: de Gea; Jones, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Young, Carrick, Scholes, Rooney; Hernandez, Welbeck
In team news, Swansea City will be without pacy right winger Nathan Dyer who is suspended after picking up a red card against Wigan Athletic. Defender Ashley Williams is a doubt due to illness.
In the third and final match of the day, Norwich City plays at home against Wigan Athletic. Life at the bottom of the Premier League table is looking very pessimistic for the Latics, but a win would see them jump two places into third from bottom. A win for Norwich would see them jump five places into eighth spot. Not surprisingly, there’s a lot on the line for both clubs. And just as yesterday’s Wolves against Blackburn was entertaining, so too should this one be.
As always, before, after or during matches, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below. Here’s hoping for an excellent performance from Swansea City even if we don’t get the three points.
