Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 17: Open Thread
Today’s Premier League action kicks off with a match between Newcastle United and Manchester City at St. James’s Park. Unfortunately, very few people are giving United much of a hope in this match. And understandably so, given Newcastle’s injury crisis (Hatem Ben Arfa is now injured as well) in addition to the team’s poor form of late. This should be a perfect test for Manchester City to see if they can get a comfortable away win in the north east.
After the early kick-off, there are six 10am ET/3pm UK time matches kicking off at the same time. Many will be watching Manchester United against Sunderland, but there are other intriguing matches in store such as QPR versus Fulham (can Redknapp finally get a win for the R’s?), Liverpool against Aston Villa (a good test for both sides), Norwich versus Wigan (in what could be the match of the weekend according to EPL Talk pundit Morgan Green) and Stoke versus Everton.
There are no late kick-offs today, so enjoy the matches you do have before tomorrow’s three games.
