Boxing Day is among the best days of the football season for fans. The real Christmas Day for any fan of the sport.
Every year we take a break from the turkey sandwiches and enjoy a punt on the match, although some clubs have more success than others.
If you’re looking to have a bet on the Premier League this Christmas, then it’s well worth analysing which clubs generally see the most success on Boxing Day.
Only one fixture will be played away from the day this year, that game seeing Southampton and West Ham go head-to-head, two teams who have had a turn of fortunes over the past few weeks.
The rest will be played at various times across Boxing Day, so we decided to take a look at just how each team performs on one of the most exciting games of the season…
The Top 4
If you’re looking to load up your mobile betting app over the next few days it’s perhaps no surprise to learn that Manchester United have the best record in the Premier League when it comes to Boxing Day victories.
The Red Devils have won almost 55% of games played the day after Christmas and will take on Huddersfield at home in a 3pm fixture.
United will of course be clear favourites for this tie against a side who have struggled so far this season.
However, the relative newcomers, alongside Brighton have two of the best records in the country, ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.
The seaside club will take on the Gunners in the early evening television game in what could be a real thriller given the form of Arsenal.
Liverpool make up the top four, and will welcome former manager Rafael Benitez on Boxing Day.
West Ham currently have the worst record in the Premier League but have been in fine fettle of late and have managed to avoid Boxing Day completely, which those superstitious fans will be certainly pleased with.
Burnley face a tough game away to Everton, who have a 44.94% win ratio on Boxing Day, while Leicester take on Manchester City at the King Power.
Of course, since Manchester City were taken over their form on Boxing Day has seen a significant lift and the bookies will undoubtedly still side with the current Champions.
Newcastle will also struggle once again against another of the Premier League favourites, Liverpool who will be desperate to keep the pressure on their Mancunian rivals.
