Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 37: Open Thread
If you’re up early today, there’s a Championship semi-final playoff on telly today — before the seven Premier League matches get under way. It’s between Watford and Leicester at 7:30am ET on beIN SPORT. Leicester won the first leg one-nil. The winner goes through to the playoff final to play either Brighton or Crystal Palace.
The first Premier League match of the day kicks off at 8:30am ET on FOX Soccer between Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur. Needless to say, Spurs desperately needs a win to put the pressure on Arsenal, who play on Tuesday against Wigan. A win for Spurs helps them leapfrog over Arsenal, back into fourth spot.
Then, at 10am ET, there are five Premier League matches kicking off. Take your pick between the relegation battles (teams in bold) between Sunderland vs Southampton, QPR vs Newcastle, Norwich vs West Brom and Fulham vs Liverpool. Or there’s Everton vs West Ham.
Last but not least, Manchester United will be pulling out all of the stops at Old Trafford for their match against Swansea where (1) they’ll receive the Premier League trophy, (2) there’ll be an emotional goodbye for Sir Alex Ferguson, (3) there’ll be an emotional goodbye for Paul Scholes, and (4) finally, there’ll be a special mural unveiled before the game to celebrate the 20th title. Oh yeah, and there’s a game to play.

Join the conversation before, during or after the game with football supporters from around the world.
And for those of you who are moms (or mums) in the United States, I’d like to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
