We are at the halfway point for the 2021/21 Premier League season now and while some teams may wish they could start over, others are battling for those all-important European places – as well as the Premier League trophy, of course.

Happily, the Premier League fixtures kick off straight away with the first games being played on New Year’s Day and, while many of us still can’t go to the games, we can watch them from the comfort of our own homes.

There are 10 games taking place across the first few days of 2021 and Premier League games on Sky Sports will be the place to watch the majority of them – or Now TV, with BT Sport having three.

Some of the games to look out for include Chelsea v Man City, with the two teams close on the table and both looking to be in the top five. West Brom v Arsenal will be another one to keep an eye on, with West Brom in the relegation zone and Arsenal, for the first time in years, are battling to stay out of it.

Check out our comprehensive TV guide to watching Premier League football on TV this New Year.
