With the Christmas break currently upon us, football fans have been thrown a bit off of their routines.

There will be a total of seven matches on December 31st, including a battle between Liverpool and Manchester City. This match has taken on even more importance, as the two teams currently sit second and third respectively in the table. Liverpool sits six points back of league-leading Chelsea, while Manchester City is currently 7 points back. It goes without saying that both teams desperately need a win if they hope to remain in the race for the league title.

The only other game that has any real importance at the top of the table is Manchester United vs Middlesbrough.
