Match of the Day 2

About this programme

Adrian Chiles reviews the day's Premier League action, featuring Burnley v Blackburn Rovers at Turf Moor and Liverpool v Sunderland at Anfield. Rovers had beaten their local rivals in their last five league meetings, stretching back to 1979, and triumphed 3-2 when the teams met at Ewood Park in October. The Reds were seeking revenge after losing 1-0 to the Black Cats in the reverse fixture at the Stadium of Light, after Darren Bent's shot deflected off a beach ball in one of the most bizarre goals of the season.
