Week 3 – 28th Dec – 3rd Jan

Festive Football Guide


The festive period draws to a close as we enter a new and hopefully much better year.

We finish 2020 with ten fixtures across two days before a slight breather on New Year’s Eve, but the action ramps back up to full intensity in January as another full Premier League schedule is scheduled for the first weekend of 2021.

The official kickoff times and dates are yet to be released for that round, but we’ll be sure to update them when we get confirmation.

The main event

Chelsea vs Manchester City – Sunday, January 3rd (16:30)

Pep Guardiola Man City Champions League

One of the standout clashes of the first round of 2021 fixtures takes us to Stamford Bridge as Manchester City face Frank Lampard’s title contending Blues.

It’s been an odd season for Manchester City so far, but they’re far from written off in the title race and by the time this clash comes round they could be right in the mix.

Chelsea are even more likely to be up there too, and this could turn into a very high-stakes tie in the long and arduous race for the Premier League title.
