Liverpool v Burnley is the early Premier League game. The second half has just started, and you will believe the score.
Don’t call it a comeback. They been here for years, rocking their peers, putting suckers in fear. But it’s still easy for us, in our ivory tower, to forget the life-affirming power of a full house at Elland Road. This afternoon, for the first time since 8th May 2004, Leeds will play a Premier League game in front of a capacity home crowd. There’s a strong argument that – pound for pound, lung for lung – Leeds supporters are the best in the country. What’s not in dispute is that there will be a helluva racket when they play Everton this afternoon.
That’s one of four Premier League games kicking off at 3pm. With it August, and clockwatch ennui not having yet kicked in, all the matches have a
story or three to excite us. There are home debuts for Patrick Vieira (Crystal Palace v Brentford), Jack Grealish (Manchester City v Norwich) and all the people Aston Villa bought with the Grealish money (Aston Villa v Newcastle).
Manchester City are also hoping to end a slightly odd if largely unindicative (is that a word? It is now!) run of three consecutive 1-0 defeats. In fact, six of the eight teams involved this afternoon were beaten last week. All know that, if they lose again today, they risk become the first team this season to take possession of the Premier League Crisis Baton. Pep out!
We’ll try to keep an eye out for any big stories in Scotland and also the EFL, but the most reliable way to keep abreast of all that jazz is through our live scores page. Our focus will be on the Premier League, specifically these four games:
