LONDON, Sporting Alert – The following are the English Premier League fixtures on Boxing Day, with leaders Leicester City looking to keep its advantage in the standings.
The Foxes are leading the EPL standings by two points and will take on Liverpool at Anfield hoping to extend that advantage on the rest of the travelers.
Liverpool, at the same time, will be looking to rebound from the shocking 3-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Watford in the last outing.
Manchester United will take on Stoke City on the road, desperately needing a victory to ease some pressure off manager Louis van Gaal, who could lose his job if his team keeps failing to win football games.
Arsenal, fresh off their 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Monday, will he hoping to keep that run going against Southampton, which hasn’t won in the last six and are coming off a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham.
Elsewhere on Saturday’s Boxing Day fixtures, Manchester City will need to respond quickly against Sunderland after being humbled by Arsenal. Sergio Aguero is expected to start again, despite not looking good in the defeat against the Gunners, while Raheem Sterling is set to come back in for Fabian Delph, who was very disappointing when starting the last time out.
AFC Bournemouth will play host to Crystal Palace looking to build on its three games winning, which included wins over Chelsea and Manchester United; Chelsea, under new manager Guus Hiddink, battle Watford at Stamford Bridge, Newcastle United entertain Everton, Swansea City take on West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa and West Ham United do battle, while Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City have a Boxing Day date.
