Match of the Day 2

About this programme

Adrian Chiles reviews the day's Premier League matches, featuring Arsenal v Middlesbrough at the Emirates Stadium and Blackburn Rovers v Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park. Boro had been regarded as Arsenal's bogey team after drawing four and winning one of their last five meetings. Wigan were aiming to win for the first time at Rovers, who needed the points in their battle to avoid relegation to the Championship.
