Long live the football.

After a week’s hiatus for mourning and remembrance, the Premier League is back in session... well, mostly. Three matches are postponed — two for policing issues related to the upcoming state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, and one in the aftermath of a rail strike that didn’t actually happen.

Tottenham Hotspur host Leicester City in the late match, and that (of course) will get its own thread. But here’s a place to talk about the two early Saturday matches until the Spurs thread goes live. Long live the king (of sports).
