Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's Premier League clashes, including Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium, Birmingham City v Chelsea at St Andrew's and Liverpool v West Ham United at Anfield. The Gunners triumphed 3-0 over Spurs in last season's corresponding fixture and beat their north London rivals 4-1 after extra time in the League Cup at White Hart Lane two months ago. Chelsea have been arguably the most consistent performers during the current campaign, and although Alex McLeish's men have been excellent at home for the last 12 months, his club had not beaten the Londoners on home soil since 1980. Liverpool had been showing signs of improvement following their poor start to the season, and welcomed a Hammers side that has propped up the table for most of the campaign.
