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 from six Premier League matches, as reigning champions Manchester City face West Ham in the lunchtime kick-off at the Etihad Stadium. City were utterly dominant against the Hammers last season, winning all four of their encounters. They easily won both league matches and also enjoyed a record breaking 9-0 aggregate victory in the League Cup semi-finals. Elsewhere, Liverpool host Hull City at Anfield. The Tigers have never won a match away at the Reds and have let in 30 goals in nine previous visits. But they have a decent record against them in the Premier League, having only lost one of their last three encounters. In the other matches Southampton entertain Stoke, Arsenal travel to Sunderland, West Brom play Crystal Palace and Swansea take on Leicester in the evening kick-off.
