Football


Boxing Day as ever delivers a hectic day of Premier League and EFL football action that kick-offs at lunchtime with the live Premier League encounter between two of the Premier Leagues promoted teams Fulham and Wolves at Craven Cottage and ends with the final match of the day the live Premier League London derby game between Watford and Chelsea at Vicarage Road. Leaders Liverpool should maintain their four point lead over defending champions Manchester City as they face struggling Newcastle at Anfield and City face a tricky trip away to Leicester City at the King Power.

Spurs and Manchester United fans will be both expecting confident home wins today against Bournemouth and Huddersfield respectively, especially after their latest emphatic wins last weekend when Spurs hit Wolves for six and United hit Cardiff for five. Brighton should pose a serious challenge for visitors Arsenal at home where they are always difficult to beat against even the top teams and Crystal Palace should make home advantage pay against visitors Cardiff given their away record this season and especially if they play like they did in their historic win against champions Manchester City at the Etihad last Saturday.

Down in the EFL Championship Leeds and Norwich will continue their ding dong battle for top spot and leaders Leeds may have the best chance at home against Blackburn, while Norwich face a talented Forest side also at home. The top two are already five points clear of third place West Brom but the battle for the promotion places is a lot closer and it includes a big clash between two of its contenders today, sixth place Sheffield Utd and fifth place Derby at Bramall Lane, which should deliver plenty of goal mouth action and goals.

Selections:

Take Derby to win away at Sheffield United.
