Arsenal and Liverpool could take part in revolutionary Christmas fixture

Arsenal and Liverpool could play in a Christmas Eve fixture for only the second time in Premier League history

Let’s just admit it. You don’t actually like the Christmas period.

All that hanging around with distant relatives who end up falling asleep after one too many drinks gets tiring.

But, if you’re an Arsenal or Liverpool fan, you could have a way out this year.

The two sides could be set to play on Christmas Eve, according to The Daily Telegraph.

It would be only the second time in Premier League history that a game has taken place on Christmas Eve.

The only previous Christmas Eve game was Leeds v Man United in 1995, when goals from Gary McAllister, Tony Yeboah and Brian Deane gave The Whites a 3-1 win.

Liverpool fans don’t need to worry about getting home in time for Santa.

The last train from Euston Station to Liverpool Lime Street doesn’t leave until 9.21pm, so there’s plenty of time to have a couple glasses of sherry before heading home.

But spare a thought for Arsenal Fan TV who could well be working into the Christmas hours if the result goes against Arsene Wenger’s side.
