Gary Lineker presents highlights from the Barclays Premier League and the Carling Cup semi-final second leg between Manchester United and Manchester City on a busy night of football. There were four games in the top flight included Chelsea hosting Birmingham. The London side had to come from behind when City last visited Stamford Bridge and Alex McLeish's team have surprised a lot of people with their form this season and so would have been looking to get something out of tonight's trip down the M40. Arsenal travelled the other way up the motorway to face Aston Villa in a game that could have a major impact on the Champions League positions. There was also a north-west derby with Wigan visiting Blackburn while Sunderland faced Everton at Goodison Park, where the Black Cats have conceded 10 goals on their last two visits. Meanwhile, reigning Premier League champions Manchester United were in Carling Cup action at Old Trafford, attempting to reach next month's final at Wembley at the expense of local rivals Manchester City. United are the defending champions in the competition but have already suffered a cup upset this season after losing to League One side Leeds in the FA Cup - could Roberto Mancini's City side inflict another in the second leg of this tie. There will also be a round-up of Tuesday's four Premier League matches, which included Liverpool's trip to Wolves and the London derby between Tottenham and Fulham at White Hart Lane. Introduced by Gary Lineker with Alan Hansen and Alan Shearer.
