The #Christmas period is amongst us, and with that comes a busy schedule of #Premier League #Football for us to feast upon alongside our Turkey, stuffing and selection boxes. This year we have at least a game a day of televised Premier League football to sink our teeth into, from Boxing Day into the start of the new year. So here is your complete guide to what, why and where to watch the best Premier League football over the holidays.

Boxing Day - Monday 26th December

12:30 pm - Watford Vs Crystal Palace (Sky Sports)

The first game of the holiday period sees the under-pressure Alan Pardew take his struggling Crystal Palace side to mid-table Watford.

Despite being the leagues sixth highest scorers, Palace have failed to live up to expectations so far this season due to their poor defensive record and currently sit just one point from safety going into the Christmas period. Failure to get a result at Vicarage Road on Boxing Day might leave Palace looking for a new manager heading into the New Year.

5:15 pm - Hull City Vs Man City (Sky Sports)

Both teams started the season off well, however, Hull have only one once in their last 15 Premier League games and now sit rock-bottom of the table whilst Guardiola's style of play has cost his Man City side important points this season. City are coming off an important win against fellow title-contenders Arsenal at the weekend, but still sit eight points behind leaders Chelsea making a win here vital, whilst Hull need to start picking up points from somewhere soon if they want to stick around in the Premier League next season.

Tuesday 27th December

5:15 pm Liverpool vs Stoke City (Sky Sports)

Liverpool currently sit second in the table, but need a victory at Anfield if they are to keep up the pace with leaders Chelsea. Mark Hughes' Stoke side will have their eyes on a Europa League finish this season and with both teams content on playing open football, this is a game that should provide plenty of goals.

Wednesday 28th December

7:45 pm Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur (Sky Sports)

Spurs are frantically chasing a top-four place after a disappointing Champions League campaign saw them exit the tournament at just the group stages. Southampton have struggled for goals since Charlie Austin's injury. However, the Saints still have one of the strongest defences in the league, and if transfer rumours are true, this might be one of the last chances fans get to see Virgil van Dijk in a Southampton jersey.

Friday 30th December

8:00 pm Hull City vs Everton (Sky Sports)

Hull make another television appearance, with yet another tricky festive fixture for 'The Tigers' when Everton come to visit.

Everton had been talked about as potential title challengers after an impressive start to the season, however, a run of mixed results (including a thrashing at the hands of Chelsea) and an unsettled starting 11 have cost 'The Toffees'. Hull have one of the toughest fixture lists throughout the Christmas campaign but need to pick up points from somewhere or risk starting the New Year playing catch-up on their other relegation rivals.

Saturday 31st December

5:30 pm Liverpool vs Manchester City (BT Sport)

A fantastic game to end a phenomenal year of PL football as title challengers Liverpool and Man City clash at Anfield. Both teams need a victory to keep on the heels of leaders Chelsea and both team love to score goals. Promises to be a cracker!!!
