Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's Premier League clashes, including Newcastle United v Liverpool at St James' Park and Aston Villa v West Bromwich Albion at Villa Park. The Reds had won the last four fixtures against the Magpies, including a remarkable 5-1 victory in the north east on their last visit in 2008. The Villans and Baggies had met eight times in the Premier League before today, and West Brom were still looking for their first victory.
