Merry Christmas to you, I hope that you have enjoyed yourself overAcca Tips the festive season so far and that your turkey was cooked to perfection yesterday and that you are now settling down to enjoy a Boxing day filled with football.

That’s because we have a virtually full fixture list on Boxing Day featuring nine games (Southampton play West Ham in the final game of Matchday 19 tomorrow night) and there are three live matches being shown on Sky Sports throughout the day.

Of course, even though it is Christmas and the toll of Mince Pies and Sherry is starting to lay siege to my waistline, I am still going to plough on and get you my tips up for the games taking place on Boxing Day.

There’s some intriguing matches including Rafa Benitez returning to Anfield with his Newcastle team, Manchester City facing a tricky trip to Leicester, while Arsenal and Chelsea have tricky away games against Brighton and Watford respectively.

Add to that a number of crucial relegation battles and you have the recipe for a 26th of December to remember for plenty of good reasons. Here’s my selections for my Boxing Day accumulator.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 26th December

Fulham v Wolves – Away Win 

Fulham must start picking up points if they are to have any chance of avoiding relegation this season, but their problem is that they cannot concede on average two goals per game and hope to do that. Wolves look a very solid side and I think Nuno Santo’s men have shown that clever signings can pave the way for a successful campaign in the Premier League for newly promoted sides.  I do think Fulham will score a goal, as they tend to do at home, but I can see Wolves having the flair and counter-attacking skill to cause Fulham untold problems defensively and the more I look at this game, the more I feel this is going to end up a 2-1 victory to a Wolves side who may not score many, but who don’t concede too many either.

Burnley v Everton – Away Win

Sean Dyche must have wondered what has happened to the solid back line that epitomised his team last season and led them to a Europa League place.  Burnley this season have looked nothing like that team and they face an Everton side who have been very clever when taking on lower positioned teams in the Premier League, picking up some solid points on the road. Burnley’s combative style isn’t going to be hugely effective against an Everton side a bit more intelligent than last season in terms of how they play and I think that ability to keep the ball may well be the key to Everton claiming the win and the points in this one.

Brighton v Arsenal – Away Win

Last season, Brighton earned a brilliant win over Arsenal at the AMEX Stadium and their fans would love a late Christmas present with a repeat of the same result against an Arsenal side who have only just seen their unbeaten record come to an end, also on the south coast against Southampton back in mid-December. The Gunners issues are defensive and injuries have hit them hard in this area and that was notable against Southampton in particular. I feel Brighton will find the net here but I am backing Arsenal’s pacy front two of Lacazette and Aubameyang to be the catalyst for Arsenal to get back to winning ways on the road and to secure an important three points for Unai Emery’s men here.

Watford v Chelsea – Away Win

Last season, Chelsea went down to a 4-1 defeat in this fixture in what was pretty much Antonio Conte’s lowest ebb as Chelsea boss prior to his sacking in the summer. However, Mauricio Sarri’s Chelsea look a much more organised and sterner opponent than the Chelsea of last season and while Watford have enjoyed a good season so far, particularly with a win over Tottenham at home and pushing both Manchester sides very hard, I feel that the Hornets are too inconsistent and that is stopping them making genuine progress towards that top eight in the table. With Eden Hazard also looking back to his ominous best, I fancy Chelsea to claim the win here.
