Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's Premier League clashes, including Aston Villa v Arsenal at Villa Park and Bolton Wanderers v Blackpool at the Reebok Stadium. Villa had not beaten the Gunners on home soil since 1998 and failed to score against Arsene Wenger's men last season. The clash between the north-west rivals was their first since 1993, with local pride at stake in a fixture that will always bring back memories of the famous 1953 FA Cup final.
