Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 5: Open Thread

hillsborough the truth anfield Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 5: Open Thread

Do Sunday mornings get any better than this? Liverpool against Manchester United, Newcastle against Norwich City, Manchester City versus Arsenal and Tottenham against Queens Park Rangers. Four matches in the space of 4.5 hours.

Needless to say, the match between Liverpool and Manchester United is one that both sides will desperately want to win for the bragging rights in the north west of England. It’ll be particularly interesting to see what line-up Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers picks especially after the spirited performances from Jonjo Shelvey, Fabio Borini, Suso and Jordan Henderson.

In the other big match of the day, Arsenal is presented with a huge task to prove themselves with an away match against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium. If the Gunners can manage a win there, the sky’s the limit for this team.

The action kicks off at 8:30am ET at Anfield and continues until 1pm ET at White Hart Lane.

The complete US TV and Internet schedule can be found here.
