Once that last bite of Christmas dinner has been devoured, football fans quickly turn their attention to the Boxing Day fixture list.
To help whet your appetite for today's action, we have picked out four festive classics from Premier League campaigns gone by.
2018 — Leicester 2-1 Manchester City
Leicester wiped away any remaining Christmas cheer from title-chasing Manchester City back in December 2018 by turning over the title-chasing Citizens at the King Power Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s men went ahead early through Bernardo Silva but were quickly pinned back by a Marc Albrighton header in a pulsating, end-to-end affair.
City dominated the ball in search of a winner but the Leicester backline, led by an inspired Harry Maguire, kept the visitors at bay before Ricardo Pereira rocketed home a late winner.
It marked a second straight loss for the Mancunians and allowed Liverpool to open a daunting seven-point lead at the top of the table.
As things panned out, City went on to win a remarkable 18 of their remaining 19 matches to secure a fourth Premier League title — holding off Jurgen Klopp’s side by a solitary point.
2017 — Manchester United 2-2 Burnley
Boxing Day 2017 saw Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United scramble a draw at home to Burnley, with Jesse Lingard rising from the bench to score twice in the dying minutes.
The Clarets, flying high in seventh and dreaming of European football, raced into a two-goal lead via an Ashley Barnes finish and a superb Steven Defour (pictured above) free-kick.
Burnley managed to nullify United’s star-studded strike partnership of Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the latter withdrawn for Lingard at half-time in what would prove a decisive switch.
The England midfielder, who these days finds himself out of favour at Old Trafford, notched a brilliant brace to spare United's blushes and deny their plucky opponents what would have been a famous victory.
United finished a distant second to local rivals Manchester City in 2017-18 — a finish they have not bettered since — while Burnley secured a spot in the Europa League qualifiers, where they were eliminated by Olympiacos the following season.
2013 — Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool
Nobody could have known at the time quite how pivotal Manchester City’s narrow Boxing Day victory over Liverpool would prove to be back in December 2013.
City, managed by Manuel Pellegrini, entered the contest a point behind the Reds and were soon behind when Philippe Coutinho tapped home halfway through the opening period.
The game was turned on its head before the interval, with home captain Vincent Kompany heading home an equaliser before Alvaro Negredo’s chip was helped in by visiting keeper Simon Mignolet — giving the hosts a vital win to send them second.
A mere eight points separated the top eight sides after this contest in what looked set to be a wide-open title run-in, but it was to be this pair who eventually battled it out for glory.
Aided by an infamous Steven Gerrard slip, City would go on to win the title by two points — leaving Liverpool’s quest for a first title since 1990 destined to go on a little longer.
2007 — Chelsea 4-4 Aston Villa
It is 13 years since the Premier League witnessed one of its most bonkers Boxing Day fixtures, with Chelsea and Aston Villa sharing eight goals and three red cards in a Stamford Bridge classic.
The visitors raced ahead through a Shaun Maloney brace but were pegged back via Andriy Shevchenko strikes either side of half-time, as Villa defender Zat Knight received his marching orders.
Opposing central defenders Alex and Martin Laursen then exchanged strikes before Ricardo Carvalho was dismissed for a nasty lunge, leaving the scoreline and playing numbers level.
A clever Michael Ballack free-kick looked to have snatched all three points for the Blues but Ashley Cole’s last-gasp handball led to his dismissal and allowed Gareth Barry to secure valiant Villa a point from the spot.
In a season best remembered at the Bridge for Jose Mourinho’s shock departure, Avram Grant's side missed out on the title to Manchester United by just two points, while Villa finished a credible sixth.
