Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 35: Open Thread
Each of the final three matches of this Premier League weekend are highly anticipated. The early kick-off sees Manchester United take on Everton at home at 7:30am ET/12:30pm BST. It’s Man United’s chance to go eight points ahead at the top of the Premier League table and put added pressure on Manchester City, who plays at 11am away at Wolverhampton Wanderers. On paper, both games should be relatively easy wins for both Manchester clubs, but just as Wigan as shown in recent weeks, you should never underestimate your opponent.
Everton will be without Leighton Baines and Royston Drenthe, so Manchester United will be playing the Toffees at just the right time. In the game at Molineux, Manchester City will be hoping to score as many goals as possible to continue to increase the +4 goal difference they currently have over Manchester United.
Meanwhile, in the third and final match of the day, it’s Roy Hodgson’s return to Anfield where West Bromwich Albion will play Liverpool. Based on the recent form table, Liverpool has the third worst home form in the league. To keep the pressure off manager Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool will need to win this game otherwise you can guarantee the press will be comparing Hodgson’s Liverpool record side-by-side with that of Dalglish.
