The Premier League fixtures for the Christmas period have finally been revealed, with Arsenal vs Manchester United featuring as the headline act of a nine-game bonanza on New Years Day.

Broadcasters have been falling over themselves to get a cut of the action, meaning almost all matches over the festive period will be accessible on television.

Arsenal’s New year’s Day encounter with rivals United has been penciled for a 8pm kick-off, with all matches earlier in the day also set to be screened by BT Sports with staggered kick-off times.

Arsenal and Manchester United will go head to head on New Year’s Day at 8pm

The arrival of Amazon Prime onto the scene has shaken up the landscape further, with the American giant showing the round of fixtures due on December 3 and 4, with games including Manchester United versus Tottenham and the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton.

Some of the kick-off times will come as an inconvenience to travelling supporters, with some clubs already acting to ease the process. Liverpool have informed fans a free coach service will be provided for the Boxing Day fixture with Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

It is the first time such volume of live football has been broadcaster during the busiest period in the English football calendar, and could be a sign of things to come for future live football arrangements.
