The Premier League and Christmas go hand-in-hand, like turkey and stuffing, pigs and blankets, Boxing Day and leftovers, and we’re here to help you pick out the top games to watch on TV over the festive period.
A full slate of Boxing Day Premier League fixtures will keep you entertained, even if this Christmas won’t be quite the same as every year before it.
A total of 20 games will be shown in the week of Christmas, half before and half after, with most Premier League games on Sky Sports.
They boast big offerings including Tottenham v Leicester and Man Utd v Leeds to set you up for Christmas, and Arsenal v Chelsea to nurse you through Boxing Day and beyond.
You can also enjoy a string of Premier League games on BT Sport with Leicester v Man Utd and Man City v Newcastle among their feast of football.
And that’s not all. BBC are showing one Boxing Day game for free across their platforms, with full details below, and there will be an offering of Premier League games on Amazon Prime Video in the coming weeks, though most of their matches are reserved for the time between Christmas and New Year.
