Colin Murray presents highlights of the day's two cracking matches from the Premier League: Chelsea at home against Manchester United and Newcastle's clash against Aston Villa. Sir Alex Ferguson's champions face a crucial clash at Stamford Bridge. The Red Devils have not won a league match there for nine games, a run that stretches back to April 2002. They did break their duck by winning at the home of the Blues in the Champions League quarter-finals last season and manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be desperate to replicate that success to maintain their title challenge. As for the hosts and their manager Andre Villas Boas, three points are crucial to maintain their slim title hopes and their realistic target of reaching the top four and qualification for next season's Champions League. For the record, the match between the sides earlier in the season at Old Trafford was comfortably won 3-1 by Manchester United.

On Tyneside, Alan Pardew's Newcastle side are in action against Aston Villa. The Villans have only won once at the Sports Direct Arena this century and were on the end of a 6-0 hammering by the Geordies at the start of last season. Newcastle's goals that day came courtesy of an Andy Carroll hat-trick, a brace from Kevin Nolan and one from Joey Barton, three players who have all since left the club. But Alan Pardew's side have gone from strength-to-strength and will be confident of picking up another win against Villa, who have had an inconsistent first season under manager Alex McLeish.

As well as comprehensive highlights from those two games, Colin and his guests as ever will look back at all the goals and major talking points from yesterday's seven matches.
