Match of the Day running order – Saturday March 10, 2018
It will come as no surprise that Manchester United’s win over Liverpool is first on Match of the Day tonight.
Unlike recent meetings between the two sides, there were goals and plenty of action.
Marcus Rashford scored a brace. Eric Bailly’s own goal halved the deficit. And, Manchester United fans won’t have to wait too long to enjoy their latest win over the Merseyside giants.
Newcastle are second on Match of the Day
The second game on Match of the Day is Newcastle’s 3-0 win over Southampton. A result that takes the Toon much closer to safety.
Kennedy scored twice for Newcastle and Matt Ritchie also notched for Newcastle.
Southampton now look like very likely relegation candidates.
West Ham are third on Match of the Day
Third on Match of the Day on Saturday night is Burnley’s 3-0 win over West Ham.
This feels like a game that could have gone first considering the pitch invasions and crowd trouble at the London Stadium.
Next up is West Brom’s latest defeat, to Leicester. Then comes Chelsea’s win over Crystal Palace and Everton beating Brighton.
Last on Match of the Day is Huddersfield 0 – Swansea 0, which is anything but a bore draw. After all, Swansea had Jordan Ayew sent off early doors and the Welsh side had to hold on.
