Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 9: Open Thread
We have four Premier League matches scheduled today, as clubs try to wrap up their fixtures before the mid-week League Cup matches.
After the Tyne-Wear derby earlier today, the match that most fans and neutrals are looking forward to is Chelsea against Manchester City, two of the biggest spenders in the Premier League.
Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Hazard, Oscar, Schurrle; Torres
Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Fernandinho, Nasri, Yaya Toure (C), Silva, Aguero
Pellegrini going negative with five mids and no Negredo…very BobbyManc like

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams (c), Taylor, Britton, de Guzman, Michu, Dyer, Routledge, Vazquez.
West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Reid, Nolan, Tomkins, Rat, Vaz Te, Morrison, Noble, Demel, Diame, Downing.
Swansea starting with Alvaro Vazquez as striker instead of Wilfried Bony. Smart move by Laudrup; Vazquez has looked very bright in Europe
