Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 4: Open Thread

It’s back! After a lengthy two week delay, the Premier League returns to rescue us from the boredom of international break. But alas, a lot of the focus today will be on the silly handshake between John Terry/Ashley Cole and Anton Ferdinand. Although Ferdinand is supposedly going to refuse the handshake, I wish Anton would just shake their hands so we can move on and put this whole episode behind us.

Kicking off today’s action in the Premier League (7:45am ET/12:45pm BST) is Norwich City against West Ham. Unfortunately for viewers in the United States, the game has been moved from ESPN2 to ESPN3.com. But the match should be worth watching as we’ll get a chance to see if Chris Hughton has had a chance to boost the morale of his players at Carrow Road to beat a Hammers side that is still smarting from their victory against Fulham a fortnight ago.

At 10am ET/3pm BST today, we have a total of six matches to choose from — including a rare treat of Manchester United and Manchester City playing in separate games at the traditional kick-off time. United plays at home against Wigan, Manchester City plays away at Stoke, while QPR takes on Chelsea at home. In the other matches, Arsenal is at home against Southampton. Swansea travel to Aston Villa, and Fulham plays West Brom at Craven Cottage (in what should be a very open and entertaining match).

This is certainly going to be one of those Saturdays where it’ll be tough to figure out which games to watch since there are so many good ones! Or we’ll be doing a lot of flipping channels back-and-forth.

Last but not least, Sunderland takes on Liverpool at the Stadium of Light in the late kick-off (12:30pm ET/5:30pm BST).

Before, during and after today’s matches, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.
