Arsenal vs Spurs, Liverpool vs Man United & WBA vs Swansea: Open Thread

Before the match between Liverpool and Manchester United kicks off today at 8:30am ET (coverage to begin at 8am ET on NBC Sports Network, for viewers in the United States), the football supporters at Anfield will give an one minute applause to the great Liverpool manager Bill Shankly, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this week.

Shankly was the Scot who changed Liverpool Football Club and turned them from a second division side into one of the most successful clubs in the history of English football. It’s therefore fitting that Liverpool plays arch-rival Manchester United today since both clubs are the two most successful in England.

History aside, the match should be riveting to watch. David Moyes has never beaten Liverpool at Anfield. Meanwhile, Liverpool have an opportunity to climb into first place in the Premier League with a win. At the same time, Manchester United have a great opportunity to show how strong they are this season even despite Wayne Rooney not being available due to injury.

At the same time that Liverpool-Man United kicks off, West Brom plays Swansea in a match that has been moved to today because of Swansea’s Europa League match this past Thursday.

Last but not least, the match between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur kicks off at 11am ET today (on NBC Sports Network in the USA). The North London derby is always guaranteed entertainment and this one today will be more intriguing than ever.

Before, during or after today’s match, join the conversation in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
