Premier League LIVE on talkSPORT: Boxing Day coverage includes Aston Villa v Liverpool, Arsenal v West Ham and Leicester v Newcastle

    Premier League fans will be receiving the best present of all in the form of a festival of football on Boxing Day.

    The return of elite English football has been top of the wishlist for many supporters for the last six weeks as the World Cup took centre stage.

    But now Argentina have lifted the trophy in Qatar, the 2022/23 Premier League season is ready for an instant restart.

    League action recommences on Boxing Day and the talkSPORT network will be across EVERY top-flight match.

    Antonio Conte’s Tottenham will kick-off the seven games on offer, as they travel to Brentford in a festive London derby.

    Harry Kane will take to the field for the first time since missing a vital penalty for England in their World Cup quarter-final defeat to France.

    But the Three Lions skipper could be provided with the perfect gift, having scored on all six of his appearances on Boxing Day – the most of any Premier League player.

    But that’s just one of the three London derbies available on the talkSPORT network, which also includes Spurs’ rivals Arsenal.

    The Premier League leaders resume their unlikely title charge by taking on West Ham under the lights at the Emirates.

    The Gunners head into English football’s resumption five points clear at the top of the table and will be looking to pile more misery on the Hammers.

    Arsenal chief Mikel Arteta is unbeaten in his five matches he’s managed against his former boss David Moyes, winning four of them.

    From current Arsenal managers to former ones – Unai Emery will be keen to continue his 100 per cent record in charge of Aston Villa against Liverpool.

    The Reds endured a poor start to the season but their Boxing Day record could prove the perfect tonic having won their last five with an aggregate score of 15-0.

    James Milner in particular relishes this time as the most wonderful of the year with his first ever Premier League goal coming the day after Christmas 20 years ago, as a 16-year-old for Leeds.

    Elsewhere, Leicester host Newcastle in the highlight pick of the four 3pm showdowns exclusively live on talkSPORT.

    Brendan Rodgers will take charge of his 300th Premier League game as a manager looking to reverse the Foxes’ torrid post-Christmas record. 

    Newcastle had been on their longest current winning run in the Premier League with the World Cup break coming at the worst time.

    However, a positive for the Magpies is that star man Miguel Almiron – who has been involved in eight goals in his last eight games – is fully rested having not featured in Qatar.

    Over on talkSPORT 2 at the same time, new Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui will take charge of his first Premier League game away at Everton.

    The West Midlands side are rooted to the bottom of the table, four points off the Toffees in safety with this fixture already proving vital for both sides.

    The talkSPORT app will then provide the other showdowns, the first of which is the third London derby between Crystal Palace and Fulham.

    Aleksandar Mitrovic for one relishes cross-capital games having scored in each of his last three Premier League London derby matches.

    And finally, Brighton will take on Southampton.

    This will be Nathan Jones’ first home Premier League game in charge of the Saints as he looks to guide the club out of the relegation zone.
