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 from all of today's Premier League fixtures. On paper the biggest fixture looked to be Chelsea's visit to Liverpool. The Blues' 2-0 victory at Anfield last season ended Liverpool's 11-match winning streak and spelled the beginning of the end for the Reds' title hopes. So far this season it has been the London side who have looked the more likely champions but there is still a long way to go, and today's result could prove crucial. Other fixtures today included Manchester United hosting Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. The Red Devils did the double over Palace last season but both sides have changed managers since then. Elsewhere, last season's champions Manchester City visited QPR, while Burnley and Hull met at Turf Moor. Southampton welcomed Leicester to St Mary's while there was a battle of the claret and blues when West Ham and Aston Villa met at Upton Park.
