Gary Lineker hosts highlights from the day's Premier League fixtures, which include all the 'Big Four' clubs. Chelsea's victory at Aston Villa last season was the Blues' first at Villa Park in 10 visits - Carlo Ancelotti would have been looking for three more points this lunchtime to continue what has been a fine start to his reign. Champions Manchester United aim for their seventh consecutive home win over Bolton, while big rivals Liverpool target a seventh win home and away over Sunderland. Arsenal face Birmingham, having been held by the Blues in the clubs' last two meetings, including the most recent at St Andrew's in February 2008, a game marred by an horrific injury to Eduardo, which saw the Croatian striker sidelined for 10 months with a badly broken leg. Harry Redknapp has revitalised Tottenham since arriving at the then bottom-of-the-table club just under a year ago - today he took Spurs to face his previous team Portsmouth, who have struggled since his departure and already look destined for a relegation battle this season. In the day's other games, Everton hosted Wolves while West Ham were at Stoke City.
