Sky Sports has added 28 live Premier League matches across Christmas and the New Year, including the Merseyside derby, Tottenham against Chelsea and Man Utd v Liverpool, as part of a huge festive football schedule.

Across a massive period of football on Sky Sports viewers will be treated to 35 Premier League and EFL games in December alone as the season reaches the halfway stage with some of the biggest rivalries and best stories from across the four divisions.

December kicks off with Chelsea visiting Pep Guardiola's current Premier League leaders Manchester City, and the following day Liverpool visit Bournemouth and Manchester United travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton.

One week before Christmas it is derby weekend with three matches involving local rivalries. On Saturday Crystal Palace host Chelsea in a London derby, then on Sunday it's the turn of the south coast with Bournemouth taking on Southampton before the Merseyside derby gets the Monday Night Football treatment.

Sky Sports viewers will be able to follow the Premier League story across Christmas and into 2017, with Watford against Tottenham Hotspur the first game of the new year, and Manchester United welcoming Liverpool to Old Trafford later on in January.
