Boxing Day Premier League: around the grounds
Elsewhere in the Premier League on Boxing Day, an interesting bunch of 3pm kick-offs you can see only by actually going, or making use of a dodgy internet feed.
Man Utd will expect to take three points from Newcastle’s visit to Old Trafford, as will Everton when they host Wigan.
Sam Allardyce will have to wait for another chance to wind up Arsene Wenger, with West Ham's visit to the Emirates to play Arsenal postponed until late January because of a Tube strike. Harry Redknapp, meanwhile, will expect QPR to continue their mini-revival at home to a West Brom team that celebrated entering the top four by forgetting how to win.
Man City visit Sunderland, while a weary Rafa Benitez and Chelsea take on Norwich at Carrow Road. That leaves out-of-form Fulham looking to get back on track at home to Southampton, and Reading at home to Swansea. Worth ignoring the in-laws for.
