Premier League Tuesday, Gameweek 23: Open Thread

juan mata david moyes 600x600 Premier League Tuesday, Gameweek 23: Open Thread

As a Premier League soccer fan, one of the toughest decisions to make is which matches to watch simultaneously — even when your favorite team is playing. Today is a perfect example of this as you have six matches, all of which are incredibly meaningful for different reasons.

You’ve got Juan Mata making his debut for Manchester United against a Cardiff City side where manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes his return to Old Trafford.

You’ve got the Merseyside Derby, where Liverpool and Everton are both as competitive as they have been for literally decades.

In the matches between Swansea-Fulham and Crystal Palace-Hull, you’ve got teams battling to avoid relegation.

With Norwich-Newcastle, how will United adapt without Yohan Cabaye who has signed with Paris Saint-Germain today?

And last but not least, can Arsenal stay atop the Premier League table with a tricky away match against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium.
