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 presents highlights of the day's Premier League games, which include Tottenham against Aston Villa. Villa boss Tim Sherwood spent five months in charge of Spurs last season, but left last summer when the club instead opted to recruit Mauricio Pochettino. The Englishman returned to management with relegation-threatened Villa in February, and will be eager to prove a point to his former employers. Also battling for survival are Burnley, who face Tottenham's north London rivals Arsenal. The Gunners are hoping to end the campaign by securing Champions League qualification for the 18th successive season, but cannot afford a slip-up at Turf Moor. Elsewhere, Southampton take on Hull, Swansea meet Everton and Sunderland face Crystal Palace, while West Brom play Leicester and West Ham host Stoke.
