Match of the Day 2

About this programme

Adrian Chiles reviews the day's Premier League action, including Liverpool v Manchester United and West Ham United v Arsenal. One of English football's fiercest rivals was renewed at Anfield, where Rafael Benitez's men hoped to put an indifferent start to the season behind them by emulating their 2-1 win over the Red Devils here last term. The struggling Hammers were in need of the points, but had their work cut out against the Gunners, who had only lost one of their last seven visits to Upton Park.
