Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's Premier League clashes, including Aston Villa v Manchester United at Villa Park, Manchester City v Birmingham City at the City of Manchester Stadium and Stoke City v Liverpool at the Britannia Stadium. The Villans were aiming for their first home win over United in the league since 1995, while their local rivals were looking to improve on their performance in their last meeting with the Citizens, when they suffered a 5-1 away defeat. Liverpool had drawn with the Potters on their last two visits, but were in need of three points after a poor start to the campaign.
