Chelsea bias on Match of the Day?

Are Chelsea being favoured on Match of the Day? The table below shows the running order of the first three games and who is on last for the season so far.

The BBC Match of the Day running order appears to favour Chelsea with them shown five times first they are having a bad season. The corporation, who to my eye no longer seem impartial in their reporting, assumes everyone wants to watch the 'big clubs' even though most would rather watch an entertaining game, the sport is after all about entertainment.

WBA are the poor relations with 1 viewing in the third slot and the rest down amongst the dead men. The UEFA Europa League means Tottenham don't feature much on the BBC's football flagship programme. 

We have had six Saturday games so far this season and just two of those have kicked off at the traditional 3pm. Manchester United have not lost at 3pm on a Saturday so there are excuses for not showing them as much, especially when you take into account the boring football they are serving up.
