Boxing Day – it’s your most wonderful time of the year.
After eating pigs out of blankets, hope you’ve made room for a successful day of festive Premier League football on talkSPORT.
So far, three games have been postponed with Wolves vs Watford, Burnley vs Everton and Liverpool vs Leeds United – a game which was due to be broadcast live on talkSPORT – also canceled.
Liverpool and Leeds were involved in an incredible clash at Anfield on Matchday 1 of last season which saw Mohamed Salah score a hat-trick in a 4-3 win, but this game will now be revamped.
Elsewhere, local Liverpool rivals Everton face a tough journey at Burnley as Arsenal surrender to wrestlers Norwich, live on talkSPORT 2.
Champions Pep Guardiola are involved in one of Boxing Day’s flagship matches as they host Leicester.
And Chelsea face a trip to Birmingham to take on Aston Villa with the 5.30pm draw also on talkSPORT.
Manchester United’s trip to Newcastle is the only game that will not be played on Boxing Day, with that game taking place on Monday 27 December. This is the first time since 2009 that Man United have failed to appear on Boxing Day.
Incredibly, the only other time the Old Trafford club haven’t played on this festive date since the Premier League was founded was in 1995. The somewhat ironic game against Newcastle took place on December 27 with goals by Andy Cole and Roy Keane. earn three vital points.
