Last Updated: 04/01/19 6:01pm
There were four Premier League fixtures for each club over the festive period, but who won the most games, who scored the most goals and who tops the assists?
There are a few surprising inclusions in the top six of the form table, although one team did win all four of their Christmas games, while another failed to take any points.
The most goals scored by a team was 15 and the bottom club scored just one, while two players nabbed an impressive number of goals and assists. Read on to see who stood out...
The festive table
Manchester United caretaker-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in just before the festive period and has had the best possible start - winning all four games with 12 points on the board, 14 goals scored and just three conceded.
Premier League festive form table
Tottenham and Liverpool each took nine points from their four festive matches, as did Leicester City, who beat Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton.
Crystal Palace are in fifth with two wins, a draw and a loss from their four games, and are ahead of Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City, who make up the next three places.
Down at the bottom, neither Newcastle or Huddersfield managed to pick up a Premier League win over the festive period, with David Wagner's side losing all of their games.
Tottenham scored the most goals - netting 15 times - while Manchester United are not far behind with 14. Despite winning three games over the festive period, Leicester did so with just four goals.
Goals scored by team
|Crystal Palace, Southampton||5|
|Leicester, Brighton, Wolves, West Ham||4|

At the bottom, Newcastle only scored once - in a 1-1 draw with Watford - while Cardiff netted twice.
Goals conceded by team
|Burnley, Everton, Huddersfield||9|
|Man City, Wolves, Newcastle||7|

Bournemouth conceded a whopping 12 goals in four games, three more than the next closest teams with Burnley, Everton and Huddersfield all shipping nine.
Chelsea may have only scored three times over the festive period but they also only conceded twice - the lowest in the league along with Leicester.
Having scored 15 Premier League goals over Christmas, it is no surprise that Tottenham lead the way for goals and assists.

Heung-Min Son scored the most times (5) and assisted the most goals (3), although he is level at the top of both tables, with fellow Tottenham forward Harry Kane also finding the net five times.
Most goals assisted

|Bernardo Silva (Man City)||3|

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba scored four goals and also assisted three times. A surprising addition for assists is 21-year-old Kyle Walker-Peters, who set up three goals for Tottenham during their 5-0 win against Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
