Premier League Saturday: Oct. 15, 2011


The Premier League is back after an excruciatingly painful international break. And it’s back with a vengeance featuring the two most successful clubs in English football history: Liverpool and Manchester United, live from Anfield.

Today’s starting lineups:

Manchester United: De Gea, Evra, Jones, Ferdinand, Evans, Giggs, Smalling, Park, Young, Welbeck, Fletcher.

Liverpool: Reina, Kelly, Enrique, Carragher, Skrtel, Lucas, Adam, Gerrard, Downing, Kuyt, Suarez.

Surprisingly, Manchester United have gone with a very defensive line-up. However, their bench includes Rooney, Hernandez, Valencia and Nani. My analysis is that Manchester United will try to stifle Liverpool’s attack and hold on for a draw until the 65th minute mark and then send on very attack-minded substitutions to get the goal that’s needed to either draw or win this game.

Before, during and after the Reds against Red Devils game, and for all of today’s Premier League matches, feel free to post your questions, observations, rants or raves in the comments section below.

After the mammoth early match on Saturday, there are plenty of other games in store, including:

  • Chelsea against Everton,

  • QPR vs Blackburn,
  • Norwich versus Swansea,
  • Stoke v Fulham, and
  • Wigan against Bolton.
