An intriguing encounter is set to take place in South Yorkshire this Christmas as two teams with opposite fortunes in 2019/2020 go head-to-head.
On the one hand, you have Chris Wilder’s newly-promoted Sheffield United who are remarkably knocking on the door of the top four at the halfway stage of the campaign in fifth, above the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Watford, with their third manager since the start of August, have endured a torrid time of it and face the challenge of having to recover from bottom at Christmas to safety in the second half of the season.
The Hornets did, however, give themselves a glimmer of hope by defeating Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils in matchday 18, though the Blades also won last time out to collect their third league triumph in succession.
The hosts are the outright favourites for the Boxing Day 3pm encounter but we know Nigel Pearson’s men can shock.
How to watch the match
Whether you’re a die-hard Blade, a fanatical Hornet or a neutral just wanting to keep an eye on proceedings at Bramall Lane, Amazon Prime Video will have you covered.
For the second time this season, Amazon are showing all the games from a Premier League matchday through their online digital streaming service in the UK.
Names such as Gabby Logan and Jim Rosenthal will be fronting up the 4K Ultra HD coverage once more, joined by the likes of Thierry Henry, Alex Scott and Peter Schmeichel for analysis.
The popular stadium atmosphere feature will be available once again, along with the goals-as-they-go-in Goals Centre channel and the ability to watch three encounters at once on separate devices – internet access devices, Smart TV, Fire TV, games consoles, BT TV, Apple TV, Virgin’s V6 TV Box, Chromecast or TalkTalkTV.
And to top it all off, viewers can see it all for free with a 30-day costless Amazon Prime trial, which also entitles them to free UK next day delivery on amazon.co.uk.
After that, the service will only set them back £7.99 per month or £79 for the whole year if they choose to keep it.
