Gary Lineker is joined by guests Alan Shearer and Mark Lawrenson for highlights and analysis of the eight Boxing Day fixtures in the Premier League. Recent history shows that the Christmas table toppers have gone on to win the league in five of the last seven seasons, and both of the Manchester clubs and Chelsea have the chance to press their title claims here.

Manchester City visit West Brom at The Hawthorns, where they had suffered three consecutive defeats until Mario Balotelli's decisive double last season. Defending champions Manchester United host Wigan in a fixture they have never failed to win, while Chelsea attempt to protect a 32-year unbeaten home record against near neighbours Fulham.

Other matches include home games for Arsenal and Liverpool against struggling sides Wolves and Blackburn respectively, while surprise package Newcastle are at Bolton.
