Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 9: Open Thread

The clocks have gone back one hour in Great Britain, so all of the Premier League matches today will kick off one hour later than usual.

Vote for your favourite English Premier League footballers on Footballtop.com.

We’ll need our beauty sleep this morning as there are four enticing matches in store. The first is the Merseyside derby that kicks off at 9:30am ET with Everton at home against Liverpool. As EPL Talk blogger Matt Jones wrote in his preview of the match, let’s hope that Everton manager David Moyes removes the shackles from Everton and lets them play a more open and attacking game instead of the overly-defensive tactics.

Before Everton-Liverpool finishes, Newcastle United kicks off against West Bromwich Albion in a match at St. James’ Park, which features two evenly matched sides.

At the same time that Newcastle-WBA kicks off, Southampton plays Tottenham Hotspur in a match that, on paper, you would think would be an easy win for Spurs. But after a sluggish performance in Slovenia on Thursday night in the Europa League, it may be a tougher battle than Tottenham supporters expect.

Last but not least, we have the prospect of Chelsea versus Manchester United. Kick-off time is Noon ET. This one is a inquisitive matchup. If Chelsea wins, we could be seeing — for the first time — a possible separation between Chelsea and Manchester City at the top of the league, and Manchester United is a weaker third position. The era of big spending from Chelsea and City could be opening up a gap at the top. Having said that, never underestimate Manchester United.

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

Have a wonderful Sunday!
