Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 6: Open Thread

number 6 Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 6: Open Thread

Today’s one of those rare Premier League Saturdays when all of the big clubs in the division are playing on the same day. Arsenal kicks things off against Chelsea at 7:45am ET/12:45pm BST in a match that will be another test of whether the Gunners are the real deal this season. After beating Liverpool, almost defeating Manchester City and staying undefeated this season, a win against Chelsea will be a massive confidence boost for their pursuit of a Premier League title even if it is still early days.

Following the early kick-off, there are six Premier League matches being played at 10am/3pm BST. Depending on your allegiances, the pick of the bunch could be Fulham against Manchester City. Or Norwich against Liverpool. Perhaps high-flying Everton against leaky defense Southampton? Of course, there’s always Stoke against Swansea, Reading against Newcastle and Sunderland versus Wigan.

Last but not least, the late kick-off is Manchester United against Tottenham Hotspur. Can  the Lilywhites get their first league victory at Old Trafford since 1989?

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