Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 10: Open Thread
Seven Premier League matches today. Each of them are excellent match-ups in what promises to be an excellent day.
With the clocks changing in the UK last week, and the US not changing theirs until tomorrow, all of the games will be one hour later than usual for us today before things get back to normal tomorrow.
Manchester United kicks things off today at 8:45am ET with a home match against Arsenal. Last year, we saw an 8-2 win for United. This year, Robin van Persie has moved from London to Manchester, so it’ll be fascinating to see what impact he’ll have today. And, if he scores, what his reaction will be.
In the other matches today, Swansea plays Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium. The Swans were literally seconds away from beating Chelsea 1-0 in the similar fixture last season until Jose Bosingwa scored a deflected goal deep into stoppage time.
Fulham against Everton will be a brilliant match-up between two high-flying teams. Tottenham against Wigan brings back memories of the 9-1 victory for Spurs three years ago. Norwich against Stoke should feature plenty of end-to-end action. In the Sunderland against Aston Villa match, both teams are desperate for a win. It’s Martin O’Neill’s new team against his old team.
And last but not least is the late kick-off today at 1:30pm ET between West Ham United and Manchester City. Hammers manager Sam Allardyce will be looking forward to putting his stamp on this one.
Here’s the US TV and Internet schedule for Premier League matches today.
