They don't play each other until the end of next month, but today we do get the Manchester clubs playing at the same time, if not head-to-head. Manchester United face the hot West Brom team that has gotten Mick McCarthy and Andres Villas-Boas fired in recent weeks. Is Sir Alex Ferguson nervous? Well, he's dropped Nani, and moved Rooney into midfield behind both Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.
Meanwhile in stately Wales Manor...
Roberto Mancini has restored Mario Balotelli to the starting line-up at the expense of Sergio Aguero, who drops to the bench. The other surprise is Stefan Savic starting. Lescott explains:
Will be supporting from the stands today, an abductor injury is keeping me out hopefully be fit for Thursday. #bulemoon— Joleon Lescott (@JoleonLescott) March 11, 2012
Later, fantasy favorites Norwich (because they take on Wigan) take on Wigan.
Enjoy the matches, and we'll be here talking, bitching, celebrating, etc.
