Live Sport on TV between Christmas and New Year
The period between Christmas and New Year is not only a contemplative time in this unusual 2020. It also holds some top class live sport on TV. Besides Boxing Day, we have the World Darts Championship, Cricket and Rugby for you.
Premier League: Boxing Day
As usual, the Premier League kicks off the post-Christmas period. On Boxing Day, December 26, there will be two highly explosive clashes. At 12:30 p.m, second-placed Leicester City will host the Red Devils. United is also in strong form and currently sits third.
The classic between Arsenal and Chelsea is a special one: The Gunners have had a miserable start to the season and are only 15th in the table. Chelsea ranks fifth and is within striking distance of the best teams. Can they strike back to get back into the top four?
