Arsenal will be in action late on both Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve, as the Premier League released its festive period fixture schedule.

The English top-flight will pause for the World Cup on November 13 and return on December 26, when seven games will be played.

There will be matches on 10 of the 11 days between Boxing Day and January 5.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is unlikely to be unhappy that his side has been picked to play at night in all three of their games over the festive period.

The Gunners will face West Ham in a London derby at 8pm on Boxing Day.

Liverpool, meanwhile, pit their wits against Aston Villa at 5:30pm.

Five days later, Arsenal travel to Brighton for their New Year’s Eve encounter which again takes place at 5:30pm.

And on January 3, the current table-toppers host Newcastle at 8pm in front of their own fans in another late clash.


Manchester United and Chelsea are at home on December 17 against Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth respectively, while Man City travel to Leeds in the only game of the day on December 28.

After a break from football on December 29, the fixtures begin again with West Ham vs Brentford and Liverpool vs Leicester.

New Year’s Eve sees Wolves vs Man United, as well as Man City against Everton and Newcastle against Leeds before Arsenal’s evening encounter at the Amex Stadium.

There are just two New Year’s Day games with Spurs to face Villa and Forest hosting Chelsea.

Brentford vs Liverpool is the only match on January 2, with Arsenal’s game against Newcastle the following day one of four fixtures, including United against Bournemouth, which also kicks off at 8pm.

Southampton vs Forest, Leeds against West Ham, Villa vs Wolves and Crystal Palace’s clash with Spurs are all the January 4 fixtures.

Chelsea’s mouth-watering match-up with Manchester City on January 5 completes the festive period fixtures.
