What is the Premier League Boxing Day schedule like?

The Premier League day of December 26 is unfortunately disrupted by the Covid. Liverpool’s meeting is postponed when Manchester City challenge Leicester.

The beautiful celebration of English football on Boxing Day is wasted this year. The Boxing Day of the Premier League, this December 26, is affected by the new wave of Covid-19 with the postponement of 3 matches. Liverpool-Leeds, Wolverhampton-Watford and Burnley-Everton will not play out and Tottenham-Crystal Palace (4 p.m.) is on hold, with Patrick Vieira’s training being decimated by the positive cases.

Leader in the standings (with 3 points more than the Reds), Manchester City has the opportunity to get a little ahead. At home, the formation of Pep Guardiola will play a shock against the Leicester of Jamie Vardy. Arsenal, 4th, plays at the same time in Norwich. Note that RMC Sport will broadcast a multiplex with the 4 p.m. matches, while Canal + Sport announces the match between the Cityzens and the Foxes.

Chelsea at 6.30 p.m., United Monday night

It is another shock between Aston Villa (10th) and Chelsea (3rd) which is scheduled for the early evening (6.30pm), this Sunday, with the Blues who can return to equal points with Liverpool if successful. The Villans, them, are deprived of their coach, Steven Gerrard, positive for the Covid. Brighton-Brentford will conclude this Boxing Day at 9 p.m. The two posters will of course be watched live on C + and on RMC.

The Manchester United of Crisitano Ronaldo will be on the bridge Monday evening (9 p.m.), as part of this 19th day of PL, with a trip to Newcastle. The Red Devils, now led by Ralf Rangnick, are 6th at 5 points from the top 4.
