Match of the Day 2 - 2009/10 - 07/02/2010

Adrian Chiles presents the last word on the weekend's football in the Premier League, featuring action from two derbies with Chelsea hosting Arsenal and Wolves making the short journey to Birmingham City. Chelsea enjoyed a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Arsenal when they visited the Emirates earlier in the season, and Carlo Ancelotti will be expecting his side to complete their first double over the Gunners for over four years. Arsenal enjoyed a 2-1 win when they visited Stamford Bridge last season, but both their goals came from Robin Van Persie, who is currently sidelined with injury. Birmingham are also looking to do the double over Wolves, having won 1-0 at Molineux in November, courtesy of a Lee Bowyer goal. It's a clash of two former international managers, with Alex McLeish, who quit Scotland to take over at Birmingham, facing former Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy. There is also a round-up of the rest of the top flight matches and a look at the quirky side of football in 2Good 2Bad.
