Gary Lineker presents highlights from the day's top flight fixtures as the busy Christmas period continues and the 2009/10 Barclays Premier League season moves past the halfway point. Chelsea hosted neighbours Fulham at Stamford Bridge. The Blues won 2-0 at Craven Cottage earlier in the season, but have been held by their local rivals in two of the last three meetings at the Bridge. Tottenham's Harry Redknapp was hoping to do the double over his old club West Ham when Spurs hosted the Hammers, having seen his side come from behind to win at Upton Park in August 2009. That same day saw Sunderland also come from a goal down to beat their opponents Blackburn. Burnley beat Everton at Turf Moor, but have found the going much harder away from home - how would they fare at Goodison Park? Two former international managers went head-to-head at Molineux with ex-Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy's Wolves taking on Manchester City, now managed by former Wales boss Mark Hughes. The day's other game was at the Britannia Stadium, where Stoke hosted Birmingham.
