Reading vs QPR, Chelsea vs Swansea & Arsenal vs Manchester United: Open Thread
Three matches, each with their own story lines. Reading against QPR is the battle of the soon-to-be relegated teams. Which one still has some fighting spirit left? Which one wants to try to avoid being the bottom club in the Premier League this season? Which manager is still able to motivate his players no matter what the predicament his team and players face?
Second match of the day is Chelsea against Swansea — a revenge match, of sorts, after Swansea defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season in the League Cup. Chelsea needs a win today to keep on trying to score a top four position. Swansea are playing for pride and large player bonuses at the end of the season depending on where they finish in the table.
Last but not least is the biggest match of the day when Arsenal will give Manchester United a guard of honor at the Emirates Stadium to congratulate them for winning the Premier League title. Arsenal will want to get all three points to put the pressure on Tottenham Hotspur after they slipped up yesterday. Manchester United will want to try to gain maximum points in their quest to beat Chelsea’s record 95 points achieved in one season. Plus, Manchester United always seems to do well when they play against Arsenal.
