Football at Christmas

There is something beautifully British about watching football over the Christmas period.
European Leagues tend to shut down for the festive period, while football in Britain gets busier than ever.
While we all yearn for a return to regular local sport, at least the TV will provide some sporting respite over Christmas.
Boxing Day kicks off with a belter in the Premier League, as Leicester City host Manchester United on BT Sport.
Aston Villa v Crystal Palace will be broadcast on BBC One, Fulham play Southampton, and the evening games include Arsenal v Chelsea, Manchester City v Newcastle and Sheffield United v Everton.
On the 27th, Leeds host Burnley, West Ham entertain Brighton and Sam Allardyce will have to lift his West Brom side for a daunting trip to champions Liverpool.
It is going to be a Christmas packed with fabulous football and when that is done, just switch over to the World Darts. Simple!
