Mikel Arteta will get the opportunity to take charge of his first match as a manager on Boxing Day afternoon, when his Arsenal side make the 115-mile trip south to Bournemouth.
The Spaniard was in the stands to watch the Gunners draw 0-0 with Everton on the last matchday, having been announced as the new manager at the Emirates on Friday.
Eddie Howe’s Cherries were also left frustrated in their most recent encounter, seeing Burnley rob all three points late on at the Vitality Stadium through a Jay Rodriguez header.
These two outfits last met back in early October in north London with the hosts on that occasion getting the upper hand by the barest of margins thanks to David Luiz’ header.
This three points is one both sides could really do with to help to get their seasons back on track, but who will be feeling more festive after full-time on Thursday?
How to watch the match
Live and exclusive UK coverage of the Cherries’ battle with the Gunners will be available on Amazon Prime video, along with the rest of the Premier League games on the two days after Christmas.
Accessing the broadcast is easy, providing you have an internet-accessible device, Smart TV, Fire TV, games console, BT TV, Apple TV, Virgin V6 TV Box, Chromecast or TalkTalkTV and will cost you NOTHING.
This is because Amazon are offering a 30-day free trial (which also comes with the perk of free UK next day delivery on goods) that can be cancelled before you’re charged £7.99 a month or £79 yearly for the 4K Ultra HD service. The matches are, of course, viewable for existing customers as well.
Prime have recruited some of the biggest names and faces in British sports broadcasting, including Thierry Henry and Gabby Logan and introduced a unique stadium atmosphere feature.
The special mode enables you to sample the pure sound of the crowd and not hear the commentators at all and to top it all off, viewers can watch up to three encounters at the same time on separate devices, including the Goals Centre channel with goals as they go in.
