Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 32: Open Thread

Five matches are on deck today in the Premier League with plenty to choose from depending whether you like to watch the race for UEFA Champions League qualification, the escape from relegation or both.

The only shame is that all of the games today overlap, so either you’ll miss a lot of the action in the other games, or you’ll be doing a lot of flipping channels.

Nevertheless, Liverpool takes on West Ham United in the early kick-off at 8:30am ET (FOX Soccer Plus and FOX Soccer 2Go). Andy Carroll has to sit this one out for the Hammers since he’s on loan from Liverpool, while the Reds are looking for their fifth win in six matches.

Thirty minutes after the match kicks off at Anfield, Tottenham Hotspur host Everton at White Hart Lane without the services of Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon or William Gallas. What will a Tottenham side without Bale look like, and will the Manager of the Month curse haunt David Moyes? We shall see beginning at 9am ET on FOX Soccer.

When the second half of Spurs against Everton is about to kick off, Chelsea will be starting their match against Paolo Di Canio. I mean, Sunderland. And Newcastle will be kicking off against Fulham.

Last but not least, the last match of the day is the relegation battle between Queens Park Rangers and Wigan. It’s QPR at home, so a draw could be likely, but Wigan will be buoyed after their home win against Norwich City last weekend and are on a roll as they move up the table.

Join in the conversation with football supporters from around the world in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. Hoping for a QPR win today. Not because I like QPR. Just need Wigan suitably distracted for next week at Wembley.

    1. Guy
      i think he just changed into his ADE shirt.hope your Potters can turn it around next match won’t be easy versus United.

  2. the CL position just got harder for the about a bust of a signing Dempsey he is giving nothing to the cause.

  3. Liverpool today showed why they are truly a midtable team. Allardyce got his tactics spot on while Rodgers once again showed why he is average. Liverpool are now out of Europe for sure. No way can they overtake two teams above them.

    Spurs had to battle for their draw and showed they have the quality to finish in the top 4. They have some tough games coming up including Europa League ones. Arsenal have a much easier schedule so these two teams will battle it out. Everton are going to find it tough to get into the top 5 but they should finish 6th and ahead of Liverpool.

    Sunderland actually played well and Di Canio did make a difference despite their loss. Let’s see how they do going forward. Good win for Chelsea and Benitez is actaully getting the best out of his squad with their fixture pileup. Even Torres looks better than he has in a while (still has a long way to go to impress his critics).

  4. Everton setup to frustrate and they did just that. Jag goal was a foul on jan, I’ve seen caulker have three goals disallowed for hat this season.

    Mirallis goal was class, ther only moment, Caulker should’ve taken the yellow instead of allowing himself to be turned, but he will learn.

    Ade played really well, as did huddlestone when he came on, Everton closed down dembele immediately but left space for the two toms when they came on.

    We lacked that creativity in the final 3rd, walker had an uphill task n his hand, Dempsey was supposed to be RM but always drifted in and left us exposed Adebyor had to make up or Dempsey.

    Yes, Dempsey has scored some important goals, but he was completely ineffectual and as I said, left us exposed on defense and toothless on the right in attack. His shooting from 45 yards and lack of movement drives me nuts…but avb continues to show faith in him…for some reason.

    Not sure when we play Chelsea, but whenever it is, it’s better we have at least one of our 5 injured starters back, perhaps Farsenal and Chelsea will beat Man Utd?but I doubt it, so that’s dropped points for both of those.
    The Man city game is massive now

    1. Probably May 8th right before we play at Wembley for the FA Cup and a week before we’re at Amsterdam for another European trophy.

  5. What a finish at Loftus Road. Just when QPR(who were down to 10 men in the 1st half) thought they had won it , a terrific free kick by Maloney earns Wigan a draw. Wigan will kick themsleves for not getting all 3 points and this lost 2 points could come back to haunt them.

    QPR are now all but relegated because a draw doesn’t help them, even if they are still mathematically alive. They join Reading. The battle is now going to be for that last relegation spot.For me it could be one of Wigan, Sunderland, Villa or Stoke.

  6. From this weekend we know that Liverpool will not be playing European football next season.

    QPR’s heartbreaking draw means they will be relegated. Reading’s loss means they too are now going to be relegated.

    Arsenal were the big winners as both Spurs and Everton dropped points and with their easier schedule should end up in the top 4 once again. To think this was a club in crisis not too long ago.

  7. Tottenham look devoid of ideas without their wide men. Everton allowed them to bring the ball through midfield but then they simply lacked creativity. How to adjust is what makes a really good manager and if this is it then it bodes well for Arsenal.
