No sooner was an epic Boxing Day fixture list concluded in the Premier League than we have Monday’s eight fixtures to look forward to.
Manchester City, Leicester, Sunderland and Liverpool must be delighted that they can take a breather compared to the rest of the Premier League with these four teams bagging an extra rest with matches on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Press Association worked quickly to produce a Premier League team of Boxing Day and it will come as no surprise that Stoke and Southampton dominate.
Stoke’s 2-0 win over Manchester United heaped more pressure on Louis van Gaal.
Whilst Southampton’s 4-0 rout of Arsenal at St Mary’s was the big shock of Boxing Day.
