Premier League festive period to feature unprecedented 20 live games -free

Premier League fans will be able to watch 20 live games across the festive period, an unprecedented number even for this time of year.

With Sky SportsTNT Sports and Amazon Prime all sharing broadcasting duties over the festive period, there are more games than ever for Premier League fans to sink their teeth into. 

Starting from Thursday 21 December, the Premier League schedule will feature just two free days across a fortnight – Christmas Day and December 29 – kicking off with Crystal Palace hosting Brighton and concluding with West Ham‘s match against the same opponents on Thursday 2 January. 

Manchester City‘s home match against Brentford, originally scheduled for December 23, has been postponed due to Pep Guardiola’s side competing in the FIFA Club World Cup. 

And, for the first time since 1995, a Premier League fixture will be fulfilled on Christmas Eve when Wolves host Chelsea at Molineux. Originally scheduled for December 23, the game was moved as clubs look to squeeze in as many games as possible ahead of a winter break in January.
