Match of the Day 2

Add to Watchlist

The original Match of the Day show featured the highlights of England's most current soccer matches. The show first appeared on BBC2 on August 22, 1964 and ran almost completely without any problems until 2001 when the relatively new Premiere League awarded the highlight rights to ITV. The result for them was dismal so in 2004 BBC regained rights to air highlights of The Premiere League. Thus the formation of Match of the Day 2. From its creation until 2012, the UK-based sports show was stationed on BBC One. At that time it was moved to BBC 2. From 2004 to 2010 the show was hosted by Adrian Chiles. In 2010 Chiles was replaced by Colin Murray who retained the position for the next two years. Since 2013, the show has been hosted by Mark Chapman. The show in both of its forms remains one of BBC's longest running shows.

Match of the Day 2 Full Episode Guide

  • Mark Chapman introduces highlights of the day's three Premier League matches, including two mouthwatering derbies, with Liverpool hosting Manchester United and Arsenal in action against north London rivals Tottenham. With analysis from John Hartson, Gus Poyet and Danny Murphy.The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United, England's two most successful clubs, ensures games between the two north west teams are always fiercely competitive. But today's fixture has an added edge following United's recruitment of manager David Moyes, who has arrived after 11 years in charge of Liverpool's cross-city rivals Everton. The Scot never won a game at Anfield while in charge of the Toffees, and will want to put that record right with his new club.Derby matches can sometimes be cagey affairs, but games between Arsenal and Tottenham invariably produce entertainment. The previous six meetings have yielded a total of 31 goals - including 5-2 wins for Arsenal in the previous two matches at the Emirates. The Gunners once again edged Spurs to clinch Champions League qualification last season, so Andre Villas-Boas' side will be out for revenge.The day's other game sees West Brom take on a Swansea side who were on Europa League duty in midweek. Mark and guests will also look back at the goals from yesterday's seven matches.

  • At Selhurst Park, Chelsea host Hull and Crystal Palace take on Tottenham.
