The fixtures for the 2020-21 Premier League season have been released and there is set to be a blockbuster London derby on Boxing Day.

Arsenal host Chelsea on 26 December at the Emirates in a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final which the Gunners won at Wembley.

Elsewhere there is a Yorkshire vs Lancashire clash for newly-promoted Leeds who take on Burnley at Elland Road, while Liverpool host another promoted side, West Brom.

Manchester United face a tricky festive trip to Leicester City and Manchester City host Newcastle United the day after Christmas.
