How to watch Aston Villa vs Chelsea: The Boxing Day Premier League fixture list has thinned, but this one’s on Sky so it’s practically guaranteed to go ahead. Here’s how to watch.
Isn’t a coincidence how the games that are live on Sky Sports are seemingly exempt from Covid postponement? Weird that isn’t it? Games being cancelled left and right, but the Premier League not intervening on behalf of clubs who’s games are being shown on the broadcaster that has paid hundreds and hundreds of millions to show them.
So, as it stands (and as it’s likely to stand) third-place Chelsea travel to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on the day after Christmas for what looks like a tasty tea-time clash. So it’s Turkey sandwiches all round and a bit of festive footy to round out Christmas weekend.
