Gary Lineker and the boys rattle through the full ten Premier League fixtures played over the past two nights. On Tuesday the big fixtures were the Merseyside derby at Anfield, and Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer's return to Old Trafford. The 40-year-old was hoping to snatch something from a currently wavering Manchester United, the team with which he experienced such success in the 90s.

Wednesday's games included second-place Manchester City's visit to White Hart Lane, and two local derbies: Chelsea hoping to take points off struggling West Ham at Stamford Bridge, and Aston Villa, the team with the worst home record in the league, playing West Brom...at home.
