After only securing a point against Swansea on the weekend, Sir Alex Ferguson will want a marked improvement from his side, particularly Wayne Rooney, who looked out of sorts at the Liberty Stadium.

After a hard fought victory over QPR last week Alan Pardew will be hopeful of a similar result at Old Trafford, howver its difficult not to get on the 2/7 for the home win.

Manchester City meanwhile,   make the journey to Sunderland in a battle between two teams with very different ambitions for the campaign. The Black Cats are improving in the Premiership after a dismal few months and its now two wins in three for Martin O’Neil’s men.

Scoring goals is still a big problem, however Steven Fletcher is back amongst the goals, scoring the winner last week against Southampton, while the Champions put in a lacklustre display against Reading at the Etihad, only winning with the last kick of the game.

4/7 looks a little on the short side for the away win, while there are sure to be plenty of takers on the 7/1 available for the home win.

Then, Chelsea head to Norwich City and the Canaries will be looking to bounce back after their first defeat in eleven Premier League matches last time out. The Blues are sure to come here with all three points in mind though and if their key men perform, they should claim the spoils.

Queens Park Rangers went down yet again on Saturday and the confidence they did have would have been shot. They host West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday knowing that only a win do, but it is going to be tough as the Baggies were the side that ended Norwich’s unbeaten run.

Both Fulham and Southampton are struggling near the bottom of the league and they meet at Craven Cottage, whilst Everton head to Wigan Athletic.

Reading kept Manchester City at bay for over 90 minutes last weekend, but an injury time winner from Gareth Barry ensured they stay at the bottom of the Premier League. The Royals take on Swansea City at the Madjeski Stadium on Boxing Day.

The Swans secured a well deserved point against Man Utd last weekend, with Michu once again bagging a goal, and the Premiership’s top goalscorer should shoot the Swans to victory at a backable price of 6/4.

Aston Villa then lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur at 5.30PM and Spurs know they might need a win to keep the pace with the top four.

The final game on Boxing Day sees Liverpool on their travels to Stoke City. Both are in decent spirits right now and sit on 25 points, so this should be an evenly matched encounter.

Boxing Day always throws up some classic matches and this times out is sure to be no different.
