The run must come now for some managers. So this pod is to review the weekend which set up the Christmas period. Positivity might rein at the top of the league but nerves will be frayed as injuries and points begin to stack up in someones favour.

Kartik and Kristan take an in-depth look at City – Arsenal; Wigan – Chelsea; and Villa – Liverpool. Whilst the rest of the league prepare to catch up with Manchester, what do their fixtures look like? EPL Talk devotes a segment to Manchester and how their Christmas might break down or build up.

Then we preview the best of the games in the run-up to Christmas day. Expect a flurry of podcasts between now and then. You’ll be positively snowed under with audio. Between now and then, what present would you give a football fan this Christmas? We still need tips…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, just Premier League matches. So what are your predictions, as we transition into the run of games, Tweet along with the podcast and give us your views for the next show:
