Match of the Day 2

About this programme

Ray Stubbs reviews the day's Premier League action, featuring the Tyne-Tees derby between Newcastle United and Middlesbrough at St James' Park and Fulham against Aston Villa at Craven Cottage. Following the well-publicised events on Tyneside this season, Kevin Keegan's men are hoping to put all that behind them and push on up the table, and a first home win over Boro in four seasons would be a huge boost to their aspirations. Villa had Shaun Maloney to thank for snatching them all three points when they beat the Cottagers 2-1 at Villa Park back in August and will be favourites to complete another win as they travel to west London. Plus, all of yesterday's top-flight goals.
