For many of us, Christmas is an opportunity to unwind and indulge. For Premier League players, managers and staff, however, it’s the busiest time of the year.
This season, English top flight clubs will each play four times in just 11 days. It is a breathless period, one that draws the ire of coaches up and down the country.

So with that in mind, we’ve put together our ultimate festive XI. Watch the video above to discover who made the cut.
And enjoy the rest of your Christmas Day!
