The traditional bumper Boxing Day bonanza in the Premier League is upon us as the season reaches its halfway mark.

The first of nine games was in north London as Tottenham came from behind to beat Brighton 2-1, avenging their humbling loss on the south coast earlier in the season.

Chelsea were stunned by Southampton, a fifth defeat in six for Frank Lampard. On the south coast, Mikel Arteta starts his job at Arsenal with a draw at Bournemouth while Carlo Ancelotti won his first game in charge of Everton, over Burnley.


Later in the day, Manchester United host Newcastle in a traditionally entertaining clash before second-placed Leicester host top-of-the-tree Liverpool. Manchester City travel to Wolves the following night.
