Match of the Day 2

About this programme

Adrian Chiles introduces highlights of today's Premier League fixtures, including Chelsea v Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge and Manchester City v Liverpool at the City of Manchester Stadium. The Blues and Villans contested one of the matches of last season when they met here on Boxing Day, as Gareth Barry sealed a 4-4 draw for the visitors with an injury-time penalty. Martin O'Neill may well be happy with a point again as it is six years since his side last won on this ground. The Reds' productive start to the campaign has fuelled belief among their fans that they may be genuine title contenders this time around, but they will need to take something from this trip to Eastlands if such optimism is to remain intact.
