Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 22: Open Thread

liverpool aston villa Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 22: Open Thread

The Premier League fixtures calendar always seems to have a peculiar trait of producing a very timely and intriguing game right after a club is involved in a sticky situation. That example today is Southampton, who seemingly were fortunate to hold on to Mauricio Pochettino’s services until the end of the season despite the club chairman resigning earlier this week. Now Southampton is featured in the early kick-off, where the cameras will be on them to see how they perform — and whether the team will play any differently after a tricky week off the pitch.

Plus of course there are plenty of other fascinating matches today.
