Watch some Prem League heavyweights slug it out on Boxing Day

We're a bit tardy getting up our weekend viewing guide but there were no games in Europe yesterday because of Christmas.

There is, however, a full slate of Premier League fixtures today plus a very big match tomorrow, with Chelsea going crosstown to play Arsenal.

Can Arsenal Last The Winter?

OK Football Finder at related • 0 views

It's funny really. Two months ago Chelsea looked unstoppable. In recent weeks they've been crumbling like a Hob Nob. The swagger and confidence is gone, along with Malouda's early season blistering form, and of course Drogba's goals. Yesterday they again stumbled, only managing a goal from the spot and ultimately a 1-1 draw with an Everton team that's resilient but in no way the best toffee side the Prem has seen in recent years.

The Transfer Rumour Factory: Will Pepe Reina on Roy's parade?

By Darshan Joshi, writing from Sydney

From time to time, Father Christmas (to give him his full, rather respectful name), throws dinner parties at his bungalow just north of the Finnish town of Rovaniemi. These are the kind of parties the likes of Jay Gatsby would, even with a fortune as ceaseless as Sheikh Mansour's, struggle to replicate.

Could Arsenal Win The League?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

Hands up all those who breathed a huge sigh of relief at the end of the first 45 minutes of yesterday's game? Moi. I say that because I think like most I didn't have a clue what to expect. Usually, we get minor changes enabling us to have a pretty good idea of what to expect but with last season's and this window's signings everything seems to be up in the air making it very difficult to calculate what to expect.

Christmas cheer aplenty at Tottenham

Stop the presses: Father Christmas is real and he supports the Spurs.

You can't really ask for much more than two wins from two games in two days, especially when you factor in our two red cards. Spurs have once again provided an excellent example of their top four credentials and, though a Premier League title is probably out of reach for this campaign, only a fool would right them off having a serious tilt at it in the coming years.

Tottenham's post-Chelsea Christmas Wishlist

The Boys From White Hart Lane at related • 0 views
Dear Father Christmas,

We've always had a slightly up-and-down relationship, us Spurs fans and yourself. Each year we invoice you with request upon request: a new striker, a win against Arsenal, for someone to please just get rid of Anthony Gardner. And though you're generally quite responsive to our tiresome needs, let's be honest, it's been a while since you really dug deep and delivered us a Christmas present we'll remember forever.

Merry Christmas!

I certainly have.

I hope you got everything you wished for.

My treasures have included a book signed by none other than Adrian Durham and a book of football quotes.

And whilst we are on the subject of Christmas, did you know that Father Christmas is an Aston Villa fan - apparently?

Just when I had considered giving up on Father Christmas altogether, he fills my stocking with dropped points by all of Chelski, l'Arse, Liverpool and even Man City. And – and - he even un-twinges VDV's hamstring. I'm not sure there has ever been a Christmas quite like it.

No reason not to expect another high-class performance, missed chances a-plenty and ultimately three more points tonight.

I didn't have the privilege to work with Jones at the paper (the late, great Jim Murray did), but Grahame nevertheless always made me feel like a co-worker and fellow soccer writer the moment I stepped into the pressbox in 2004.

Just as there were numerous sightings of Henry from Lime Street to the Lobster Pot prior to him joining Barcelona three years ago, rumours were rife this week that Cole was camped out at Melwood.

The Transfer Rumour Factory: Our orgy of transfer rumour bliss

By Darshan Joshi, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Santa is a fat man. Ridiculous, really, that fact - you'd imagine that a man kids looked up to might be a tad healthier. You'd imagine Santa being the sort of man who may fall through your chimney, roll to the dining table and tell the kids to eat their greens and to lay off the ice-cream, but he can't because children recognise a hypocrite these days.
