Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 36: Open Thread

number 36 Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 36: Open Thread

Out of the seven Premier League matches today, six of them could have huge implications on the race for Europe and/or relegation. The only dead rubber is Fulham against Reading, where the fate of both clubs is already sealed.

Depending on your persuasions, the biggest matches of the day could either be the battle to avoid relegation (West Ham vs Newcastle, West Brom vs Wigan and Norwich vs Aston Villa) or the race to finish in the top four in order to qualify for the Champions League (Spurs vs Southampton, Swansea vs Manchester City, QPR vs Arsenal). There’s a lot on the line the majority of those clubs listed.

If you live in the United States, all of the matches will be shown live on television or the Internet. Visit our guide to see which matches will be shown where.

In starting XI news, Newcastle United are boosted by the return of Fabricio Coloccini and Hatem Ben Arfa. For Tottenham, Aaron Lennon and Tom Huddlestone return from injury to start alongside Mousa Dembele. Scott Parker is out through injury.

Join the conversations with football supporters from around the world before, during or after today’s matches.

Have a wonderful Saturday!
