Saturday Pre-match Open Thread

Chris Brunskill

Chelsea have the last scheduled Premier League match of the day, which means that we will have gotten to know the result of not only Everton vs. Liverpool (sixth vs. second) but also Arsenal vs. Southampton (first vs. third) before kickoff.

The Merseyside Derby opens Machday 12 (7:45 EST; NBCSN) and with both teams in the Top 6, it carries even that extra little bit of actual meaning it with it as well. The last time Everton won was three years ago - Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta scored the goals; that's how long ago that was.

Five matches are scheduled for the traditional 3pm GMT slot and the big one is Arsenal vs. Southampton. First vs. third; the two most in-form teams; there are plenty of talking points while the winners will go a long way in proving that their early success has been "for real."

Other matches include Fulham vs. Swansea, Hull vs. Crystal Palace, Newcastle vs. Norwich, and Stoke vs. Sunderland.

Discuss.
