Gary Lineker presents highlights of Saturday's Premiership action, while Adrian Chiles hosts Match of the Day 2 on Sunday

Gary Lineker presents highlights and goals from the day's Premier League fixtures in Saturday's Match of the Day (2230 BST and Sunday 0735 BST on BBC One/online).

The day's big game sees Arsenal visit Manchester United at Old Trafford. Can Arsene Wenger's men dent United's title hopes?

Middlesbrough fans have not had a lot to cheer about this season but they did enjoy an unlikely away victory at Aston Villa earlier this season - a victory today is crucial in their bid to survive the drop.

Alan Shearer enjoyed his first win as Newcastle manager on Monday to lift the Magpies out of the relegation zone. Another three points at home to Fulham could be enough to secure their Premier League status.

Newcastle v Fulham
Middlesbrough v Aston Villa
Bolton v Hull City
Tottenham v Man City
Everton v West Ham
Stoke City v Wigan

A run of one win in 20 games has seen Hull slip into the bottom three for the first time this season. On Sunday they face manager Phil Brown's former club Bolton.

Wigan face the unenviable task of tackling Stoke at the Britannia Stadium, where the Potters have been incredibly strong all season.

Elsewhere, Everton and West Ham meet at Goodison Park while Tottenham face Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

On Sunday, Adrian Chiles introduces highlights of the day's games, plus a review of Saturday's action, in Match of the Day 2 (2230 BST, BBC Two/online).

Liverpool travel to West Brom and Chelsea host Blackburn.

West Brom host Liverpool, having lost the previous 10 league meetings between the sides.

Realistically the Baggies need to win their final two games or their slim chances of playing Premier League football next season are over.

Chelsea have won four of their last five Premier League games against Blackburn will be big favourites to take three points in today's meeting at Stamford Bridge.

Rovers' Premier League status is all but secure, but a point today would make it a mathematical certainty.
