Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of the Boxing Day Premier League fixtures, including Chelsea v Fulham at Stamford Bridge and Manchester United v Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford. The Cottagers had scored just once in their five previous meetings with the Blues, whose last home defeat to their local rivals was in 1979. The Latics' record against the reigning champions was even worse, with United winning every one of their 13 encounters. Plus, action from Bolton Wanderers v Newcastle United, Liverpool v Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland v Everton, West Bromwich Albion v Manchester City and Stoke City v Aston Villa.
