Premier League Wednesday, Gameweek 26: Open Thread

Weather conditions are going to play havoc with some of the games in England today with heavy wind and rain threatening to impact matches being played in the north of England.

There’s heavy rainfall at the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City against Sunderland, while heavy winds could force the postponement of Stoke-Swansea (or, at the very least, a very trying time to play football).
