The Match of the Day running order
Manchester United fans might not be happy with the Match of the Day running order, when they see it…
Gary Lineker explains on the video below that Southampton 3 – West Ham 2 was the game of the day.
Plus it is on first as a result of the fact that there were more goals in the Southampton-West Ham game than any other match in the Premier League on Saturday.
Swansea 0 – Manchester United 4 on second
Manchester United made it two wins out of two, eight goals scored and 0 conceded on Swansea but they are only second on Match of the Day.
From there it feels like Gary Lineker and the Match of the Day editorial team had a tough choice to make.
Stoke’s 1-0 win over Arsenal is on third. Followed by West Brom’s 1-0 win at Burnley.
Tony Pulis’ side have now bagged two wins from two and are joint top with Manchester United, albeit after just two games.
Liverpool’s win over Crystal Palace is on last!
West Brom are followed by Leicester’s 2-0 home win over Brighton. Watford’s victory at Bournemouth.
And, last on Match of the Day is Liverpool’s 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace.
Lineker hails the Leicester performance on the video below – which was on Match of the Day’s Facebook Live.
The former England striker discusses Liverpool’s “much needed” victory over Crystal Palace. And, also asserts that it is “early days” for Frank De Boer at Selhurst Park.
Even with three games left to play in this Premier League weekend, Match of the Day has all the makings of a good watch tonight.
Watch Gary Lineker explain the Match of the Day running order below.
