The busiest part of the Premier League calendar kicks off the day after Christmas, with 30 matches taking place over the next 10 days.
Here is a snapshot of what we saw the last time the Premier League was in action:
- Liverpool hung seven goals on Crystal Palace to remain atop the Premier League standings.
- Leicester City upset Tottenham, 2-0, on the road, moving up to second place in the table.
- Manchester United scored six goals against Leeds to secure a 6-2 win and move into third place in the table.
- Everton beat Arsenal, 2-1, to move back into the top four.
- Chelsea ended its two-match losing streak, beating West Ham at home, 3-0.
- Manchester City beat Southampton, 1-0, which caused the Saints to drop outside the top four.
This is the busiest time of the year for these clubs, so managers will rotate their squads to rest certain players. Therefore, it may be a good idea to wait until starting lineups come out before heading to the window.

Premier League Notes
- Leicester vs. Manchester United: A top-four showdown kicks off Boxing Day at King Power Stadium. Manchester United has won six of its last seven matches and is a perfect 6-0-0 on the road in Premier League play this season. Leicester has struggled against the Red Devils, as their last win against them came in 2014.
- Arsenal vs. Chelsea: This year’s London Derby features two teams heading in opposite directions. Just when you think Arsenal has reached rock bottom, they find a way to go even lower, as they are in 15th place and haven’t won a Premier League match in almost two months. Chelsea is on the outside looking in at the top four and needs a victory to get back inside.
