Update: some of the boxing day matches have been postponed due to the recent surge of infections across players and country.

Liverpool – Leeds United

Can ‘Big Virg’ enter the boxing day kick off match at 12.30? He is one of the question marks due to recent corona infections in the squad. Chances are that Jürgen Klopp will pass him and some other important players regardless, as the program for Liverpool borders on insanity in December. A staggering nine matches have to be played, with four players infected by corona and others having ‘normal’ injuries. Against Leeds we don’t expect all these setbacks to impact the result of the match, but Henderson warns of exhaustion later in the season. He is also worried about the health of players, and we can’t disagree.

Despite playing so many games, Liverpool is performing splendidly. Eight games in a row were won in the Premier League before drawing 2-2 against Tottenham Hotspur. This could be the first sign of a team starting to feel the fatigue. The chances of decay that leads to a loss against Leeds United are small. Although this team has shown against Chelsea that they can prey on unmotivated or tired players. The odds surely reward a stunt. 



Manchester City – Leicester City

The proud number 1 on the charts is still Manchester City. Three points loose from Liverpool and six from Chelsea. No signs of fatigue here as the Citizens-train is on full steam with eight victories out eight matches. Their opponent has to fear not going into the books as a one day fly as their 2015-2016 Championship was succeeded with finishes outside the top four. Needless to say, they are not going into this match with much confidence after being kicked out from the Europa League. Last September Leicester City kept the citizens at bay, losing with just 0-1. Something that they will remember to boost their spirit. They will also realise that the September squad of Pep Guardiola is not the same as the December squad. 

Barely losing to Liverpool in the League Cup and winning to Newcastle with 4-0. Something that Manchester City copied though. Does show that Leicester City could find the form that will get them back to competing for European Tickets.

Aston Villa – Chelsea

Chelsea must look with a jealous eye to the form of their direct competitors. Thomas Tuchel is experiencing a difficult period that sets them back to third place, although there is some breathing space with the surprising number four Arsenal. This will be a crucial week for the Blues where it will be decided if they will stay in the race for the title, to begin by overcoming the hurdle that is Aston Villa. The current number ten in the rankings. Back in september, Chelsea won convincingly with three to zero with two goals from Romelu Lukaku. 

Aston Villa will be happy to survive this game as it is absolutely hammered by corona infections. Gerrard said he had 14 players to pitch, barely more than the minimum of 13 names that need to be on the starting form. This will be one game that has the risk of being canceled and thus is a risky pick for your boxing day bonus.

Norwich City – Arsenal

Another boxing day bonus match. Mikel Arteta paid out the confidence that the board of directors showed him. Thanks to a winning streak and a decent fourth place. Hopefully the Gunners are back to their former glory. The disastrous start of the season was partly to blame on the strength of the opponents (among which Chelsea and Manchester City) and the fact that these opponents had some European matches in their legs.

That disadvantage is now turning into an advantage, as the top three is feeling the weight of the many matches as mentioned above. Arsenal can focus on building their future in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup (where they will meet Sunderland on Tuesday). Norwich City will not go into the match with the same confidence as Arsenal, as they only hit the net eight times in the last seventeen games, while conceding an average of two per game. Poor Tim Krul.  

Tottenham Hotspurs – Crystal Palace

The Spurs seem to have made a good choice in Conte as their coach, since the matches after a 0-0 against Everton have all been won: Leeds United (2-1), Brentford (2-0) en Norwich (3-0). Admittingly, games that you could expect to be won. The same goes for this match though, with Crystal Palace not being in optimal form. Patrick Vieira is doing better with Crystal Palace than last season with 11th place, but out of the last 15 points they only managed to win 4. We suspect the Spurs won’t let this chance go by to find connection with the top teams.
