This week was our annual introduction to the ‘Festive Football Calendar’. This weekend will bring the third game of the week for all of the Premier League teams and it’s the start of a period where teams from the English top flight will play 8 games in just over a month.
Liverpool have cemented their lead at the top of the league with wins over Brighton and local rivals Everton. Leicester City are hot on their heels with seven wins in a row. The league leaders face each other at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on the 26th December in a game that will have a big impact on the title race.
The Manchester Derby is the pick of this weekend’s action.
