Typically, it is shown on BBC One on Saturday evenings during the English football season, showing highlights of the day's matches in the Barclays Premier League. It is one of the BBC's longest-running shows, having been on air since 1964, though it has not always been aired regularly.

They run a competition called Goal of the Month, choosing the best goal each month, where the winner from there will then be entered into a goal of the season award.

Season 2009 - Episode 28 - Aired 2/27/2010

Gary Lineker introduces goals and highlights from Saturday's Premier League fixtures. Former Italy team-mates Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Mancini have faced each other other as managers in the Milan derby, and here they met for the first time as Premier League bosses, with Ancelotti's Chelsea hosting Mancini's Manchester City. Arsenal travelled to Stoke, having lost at the Britannia Stadium both in this league fixture last season and in the FA Cup in January. Portsmouth's win over Burnley in December was their first under Avram Grant - could they do the double at Turf Moor? Birmingham v Wigan promised plenty of goals, as the Blues won this fixture 3-2 last season and also prevailed by the same scoreline at the DW Stadium earlier in this campaign. Wolves were at Bolton in the day's other top flight game.

Gary Lineker presents highlights from the day's matches in the Premier League. Reigning champions Manchester United will aim to do the double over Everton for the third time in four years when they visit Goodison Park. Sunderland inflicted a surprise defeat on Arsenal when the sides met at the Stadium of Light in November 2009, so Arsene Wenger's team will look for revenge. Wolves fans will be nervous ahead of their match with Chelsea, given that the Blues have scored 14 goals in the teams' previous three meetings, including a 5-0 victory on their previous visit to Molineux. Tony Pulis takes his Stoke side to face his old club Portsmouth, while relegation rivals West Ham and Hull meet at Upton Park. Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson are in the studio to analyse the play.
