Premier League opts against Christmas Eve matches

No Premier League games will take place on Christmas Eve after none of the scheduled 23 December games were moved there for live television coverage.

There is now an agreement in place that the fixture will go ahead three days before Christmas, which will still be problematic for fans but is a better option than Christmas Eve.

Complaints by Arsenal stewards and concerns about how Liverpool fans would get home after the match seem to have won the day over Sky's unfortunate desire to have a marquee match to broadcast on Christmas Eve this year.

Liverpool's trip to Arsenal will now be played on Friday night, kick-off 7.45pm.

Leicester City's home game against Manchester United has also been moved to the Saturday, 23 December.

Fans had previously been reassured that no fixtures would take place at 16:00 or later on Sunday, 24 December. Burnley welcome Tottenham to Turf Moor at 5:30 p.m. GMT on the same day, with the remaining six Premier League fixtures that weekend scheduled for 3 p.m. GMT.

BT Sport is to show nine Premier League matches exclusively live throughout December.

"We appreciate this is the peak time for supporters attending and watching the Premier League", he said.

The match at the Emirates looked increasingly likely to be changed to Christmas Eve for broadcasting reasons but the Premier League and Sky Sports have agreed not to make the change. All other games that day kick off at 3 p.m. GMT, while Newcastle vs. Manchester City has been switched to 7:45 p.m. GMT on December 27 and Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal to 8 p.m. GMT on December 28.

Two matches were selected for live broadcast on Boxing Day: Tottenham v Southampton at 1230GMT and Liverpool v Swansea at 1730GMT.
