Premier League and FA Cup Sunday, Gameweek 29 and 6th Round: Open Thread
Just like yesterday, today we have two FA Cup matches and two Premier League games. The action begins with the early kick-off at Molineux between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United (9:30am ET kickoff). The key to this match will be the first 20 minutes. If Wolves isn’t playing well, it’s quite possible that their own supporters may turn on the team, so the last thing Manchester United will want is to let Terry Connor’s side score or play well.
Thirty five minutes after Wolves and Man United kick off in the Premier League, Chelsea plays Leicester City in the Sixth Round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge. I wouldn’t be surprised if Di Matteo rests some of the Chelsea players who battled back against Napoli to win in the mid-week. Leicester, however, will be dreaming of a FA Cup upset to make it to Wembley for the semi-final.
Two hours later, Liverpool plays Stoke City in the second FA Cup match of the day. The Reds will be gunning for a win here to help them move closer to getting their second piece of silverware this season.
Last but not least, Newcastle United plays Norwich City in the Premier League (Noon ET kickoff time). Both teams have gone through a dip in form. United hasn’t won their past four matches, while City hasn’t won their last three.
