Premier League Saturday, Gameweek 30: Open Thread
FA Cup semi-finalist Hull City plays League Cup winner Manchester City today in the first match of the day. With a win, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will move back into second place in the league, at least temporarily until tomorrow. It’s imperative that Manchester City wins today if the club wants to try to win the title. A draw or a loss would give Chelsea a huge advantage. Meanwhile a win for Hull will push them further away from the relegation drop zone.
This is the first of 8 matches today — all of which have relegation implications.
