Match of the Day

About this programme

Gary Lineker presents highlights of today's Premier League clashes, which included Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea at White Hart Lane and Manchester United v Stoke City at Old Trafford. Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas was facing his former side for the first time since being sacked last season, and will have been confident of obtaining a positive result after his current team began to show signs of improvement recently, not least when securing a first win at Old Trafford in 23 years when they won 3-2. Despite that loss, and having suffered defeat at the hands of Everton in their opening fixture, United were one of the early season pacesetters, and went into their match having won their last nine consecutive home clashes with the Potters, stretching back to the 1981/82 season. The rest of the day's fixtures were Fulham v Aston Villa, Liverpool v Reading, Swansea City v Wigan Athletic, West Bromwich Albion v Manchester City, West Ham United v Southampton and Norwich City v Arsenal.
