Match of the Day (often abbreviated as MOTD) is the BBC's main football television programme. Typically, it is shown on BBC One on Saturday evenings during the English football season, showing highlights of the day's matches in the Barclays Premier League. It is one of the BBC's longest-running shows, having been on air since 1964, though it has not always been aired regularly. The 'Match of the Day' brand is also often used for live football coverage on the BBC. They run a competition called Goal of the Month, choosing the best goal each month, where the winner from there will then be entered into a goal of the season award.

Episode summary:

Gary Lineker introduces highlights of the day's eight Premier League games, including Everton against Chelsea. All eyes are on the Toffees' £28m summer signing Romelu Lukaku, who was allowed to leave Chelsea after a successful season on loan at Goodison Park. The Blues themselves spent £32m on Brazilian-born Spain international Diego Costa, so it will be fascinating to see which of the two strikers comes out on top. The day's first kick-off sees newly promoted Burnley host Manchester United, while Stoke boss Mark Hughes faces his former side when the Potters take on reigning champions Manchester City. Elsewhere, Aston Villa meet Hull, Newcastle host Crystal Palace, QPR take on Sunderland, Swansea face West Brom and West Ham play Southampton.
