Well, it's all over but for the shouting/crying. Friday has been consigned to the annals of history, as Chelsea closed out the summer transfer window with a bit of a whimper and got run off the pitch in their second ever Super Cup exhibition match with a painful wail of ineptitude.

Let's turn our attention to the rest of the Premier League for a bit*, all of whom are playing catch-up to Chelsea's perfect record. Everton & Swansea City, the two other teams with 100% records, are both in action in the traditional 3pm kickoff slot (10am EDT). They're joined by AVB's Spurs (now with added Clint Dempsey and Hugo Lloris, neither of whom will feature), while Manchester City have the late kickoff. But first, it's a cross-London match-up:


West Ham United vs. Fulham, 12:45pm BST / 7:45am EDT

Swansea City - Sunderland, 3pm BST / 10am EDT

Tottenham Hotspur - Norwich City, 3pm BST / 10am EDT

West Bromwich Albion - Everton, 3pm BST / 10am EDT

Wigan Athletic - Stoke City, 3pm BST / 10am EDT

Manchester City - Queens Park Rangers, 5:30pm BST / 12:30pm EDT

* plenty of action around the rest of Europe as well
