Match of the Day - 2008/2009 - 26/04/2009

Gary Lineker presents highlights from the day's seven Premier League fixtures. Reigning champions Manchester United met Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has a good record against United, and his side held the champions to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane in December. However, Sir Alex Ferguson's men have beaten Tottenham in both domestic Cup competitions this season, and have never lost at home to them in the Premier League. Liverpool travelled to Hull City, who held them to a surprise 2-2 draw at Anfield earlier in the season, even taking a 2-0 lead against Rafa Benitez's side before Steven Gerrard, not for the first time, came to the Reds' rescue. Chelsea crossed London to face West Ham United, who are now managed by former Blues hero Gianfranco Zola. Bolton Wanderers hosted Aston Villa, and there were six goals when the sides met in December with Villa prevailing 4-2. Stoke City made the trip to Craven Cottage to play Fulham, while Everton were aiming to do the double over Manchester City. Sunderland travelled to West Bromwich Albion, having enjoyed a 4-0 win, their biggest of the season, when the two sides met at the Stadium of Light in December.
