As we enter one of the most beloved times of year for Premier League fans, it’s coincidentally also the favorite time of year for kids, who share a penchant for unexplained crying and yelling. During the holiday season, both children and fans can enjoy lounging around, avoiding uncomfortable clothing, indulging in food, and playing with favorite toys. For Premier League fans, this means they can eagerly anticipate consecutive game days beginning on Thursday.
The Premier League’s holiday fixtures may be a car crash, with Liverpool facing Arsenal at Anfield and subsequently playing against Newcastle on New Year’s Day. Meanwhile, Manchester City is set to partake in the Club World Cup and return to a challenging match against Everton. Aston Villa has a relatively easy schedule, with matches against Sheffield and Manchester United, as well as Burnley.
Weekend matches brought some significant developments. Arsenal displayed their class with a dominant performance against Brighton, showcasing a strong defensive strategy and a formidable midfield. Liverpool, on the other hand, struggled with deep, low blocks, highlighting the deficiencies in their attack. Aston Villa secured a rare away win against Brentford, while Raul Jimenez’s bizarre red card and Ben Godfrey’s exceptional tackle for Everton added drama to the weekend’s games.
With the Premier League action set to continue throughout the holiday period, fans can expect an eventful and unpredictable schedule. It’s an exciting time for football enthusiasts, and the upcoming fixtures are sure to keep everyone on the edge of their seats. Stay tuned for more action as the Premier League season progresses.
