HAVE YOUR SAY

Reminiscent of the Latics debut season in the Premier League back in 2005 (was it really that long ago!) when Chelsea were once again the opposition, the bosses at Sky Sports have identified the game as the perfect season opener for their viewers

The home game against champions Manchester City scheduled for Tuesday November 27th has also been put back 24 hours to Wednesday 28th November and will be shown live on Sky Sports
