Premier League Boxing Day fixtures: every EPL game taking place on 26 December and how to watch or stream live

Amazon Prime will provide comprehensive coverage of every Premier League game on Boxing Day

The Premier League makes its long awaited return on Boxing Day with football-starved fans being treated to English top flight action for the first time since 13 November.

All 20 teams will return to action over a three-day-period and they will be aiming to hit the ground running after the first ever winter break in Premier League history.

The winter break for the Qatar World Cup offered a unique opportunity for some managers to spend a little bit of extra time on the training ground with their team - while others will see the tournament as an unwelcome distraction to their season due to the increased workload on their players.

Amazon Prime will dominate the coverage over Boxing Day and all 10 games from the next round of fixtures will be shown exclusively across the platform.

There are a host of exciting fixtures taking place in the Premier League over the festive season. Here is your guide to the return of the Premier League.

The first Premier League fixture following the restart will see Brentford take on Tottenham at the Gtech Community Stadium. All eyes will be on Brentford talisman Ivan Toney who is available to play despite being charged by the FA with 262 counts of alleged breaches of betting rules. Toney has been a key player for The Bees and is amongst the Premier League’s top scorers this campaign with 10 goals so far.

The spotlight will also be on Tottenham star Harry Kane who will be looking to bounce back from his penalty miss in the World Cup quarter-final against France. Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League heading into the game while Brentford are currently 10th in the table.

Crystal Palace vs Fulham - 3pm (Amazon Prime)

Crystal Palace will host Fulham in a London derby. Both sides are currently level on points in the Premier League with 19 points although Crystal Palace have played one less game than Fulham.

Both teams will enter the game without key players - Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi will miss his first league game of the season with a suspension, while Fulham’s leading goal scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic is likely to miss the game with a foot problem.

Everton vs Wolves - 3pm (Amazon Prime)

Former Real Madrid and Spain manager Julen Lopetegui will take charge of Wolves for the first time in the Premier League. The 56-year-old will be hoping to hit the ground running as Wolves boss and will take his side to Goodison Park to face fellow strugglers Everton.

Wolves are bottom of the Premier League with 10 points from their opening 15 games, while Everton are just above the relegation places with 14 points from 15 games. The Toffees currently sit 17th in the table and are under pressure to find form after a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth before the international break.

High flying Newcastle have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season and currently sit third in the table with just one defeat from their opening 15 games. Eddie Howe’s side have three times as many points as they had at this stage last season and are targeting a top four finish for the first time since 2003.

They will face an in-form Leicester team who have won four of their last five Premier League matches. The Foxes will be hoping that James Maddison passes a late fitness test after an ongoing knee problem. The Magpies will be without record signing Alexander Isak who has been ruled out of the game with a thigh injury.

Southampton vs Brighton - 3pm (Amazon Prime)

Nathan Jones will be in the dugout for his first home league match as manager of Southampton. Jones replaced Hasenhuttl as Southampton boss in November and will be aiming to turn the club’s fortunes around after a poor start to the season. Southampton are 19th in the table and take on a high-flying Brighton side who sit 7th in the league.

Brighton will be without World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister and will also be missing Adam Webster and Danny Welbeck through injury. Southampton defender Kyle Walker Peters is expected to return for the first time since October.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool - 5.30pm (Amazon Prime)

Unai Emery will be hoping to continue his dream start to life as Aston Villa boss when he takes on Liverpool in the Premier League. Emery has recorded back to back victories in his first two matches in charge, the most notable of which was a 3-1 victory against Manchester United.

Liverpool have failed to find their best form this season and currently sit 6th in the Premier League table. Jurgen Klopp and his team will be aiming to bounce back from their slow start.

Aston Villa will be without World Cup winner Emi Martinez, while Jacob Ramsey is also ruled out with a hamstring problem. Liverpool will be missing Roberto Firmino and James Milner for the next two games.

The final game of the day sees league leaders Arsenal take on London rivals West Ham. Mikel Arteta’s side have enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign and entered Christmas at the top of the Premier League table for the first time since 2008.

West Ham have struggled to find their best form this season and currently sit 16th in the table after the opening 15 games.

Arsenal hope to have both Oleksandr Zinechenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu back on the pitch after injuries, however they will be without leading goalscorer Gabriel Jesus with injury. West Ham United also have a striker crisis of their own with Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca both likely to miss the game through injury.
