What an awesome Sox game last night.  No surprise most of us missed the Swansea-Everton 1-1 tie at 7:45 am.  And if you want a game between two teams known for high-tempo pressing, Monchengladbach-Dortmund is on right now.
 
Coming up in the EPL:
 
Saturday
10a - Southampton-Hull
10a - Sunderland-Palace
10a - Tottenham-Villa
10a - West Brom-Leicester
10a - West Ham-Stoke
12:30p - Burnley Arsenal
 
Sunday
8:30a - QPR-Chelsea
11a - United-City
 
Monday
3p - Liverpool-Newcastle
 
The big game is obviously the Manchester Derby, and there are also lots of games between Top-4 hopefuls (Soton, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea) and relegation fearfuls (Hull, Villa, Burnley, QPR).  If any of those bottom teams could pull off an upset, it would have a ripple effect on both ends of the table.

Is this Yedlin's first game as a substitute, or has he been at the back of the bench before and I missed him?

Aaaaand Yedlin gets caught going forward and gets bailed out by his keeper. Yikes.

Just switched over to see a late counter attack for Leicester and Vardy scores, 2-3 to Leicester.
 
West Brom were 2-1 up with 15 to go. Gerat fightback by Leicester. Seconds to go in the 4th minute of stoppage time. The awat fans are whistling and the ref blows. Leicester grab three huge points at the Hawthorns. Pulis is beelin.

After looking dead in the water, Leicester has a chance to avoid relegation.  They have a game in hand compared to Hull (17th) and are only three points back.

Burnely will get out of the bottom three if they beat the Arsenal.  Burnley have some decent fixtures coming up so a point won't be terrible.
 
Gary Lineker is furiously knocking one out as we speak.

Their game in hand is against Chelsea. It is a loss.

California. Duh.
Fellaini offside, but they count it. 2-1.
 
EDIT: To be fair, with the angle, he may have been just level.  I still think his massive head was slightly off, though.

Mangala could take away Fellaini's aerial advantage. 
I doubt he will. Fellaini seems to be under strict instructions to take a position away from the ball. Mangala won't be able to find him as he will have to stay central

I can't remember the last time Yaya dominated a game, like he did many times last season.
 
I wonder if City will blow it up in the off-season, keep a few key players (Aguero, Hart, Silva) and restock.  I could totally see them selling Yaya, then trying to spend silly money on Pogba.
