Arsenal and Liverpool set to play Premier League Sky Sports ‘Super Sunday’ on Christmas Eve despite Reds’ objections
ARSENAL and Liverpool could be in for a festive bang with the two sides set to face each other on CHRISTMAS EVE.
Sky Sports are due to announce next month that at least one match will be held on December 24.
And the Daily Telegraph claim the Gunners versus the Reds is the most likely to be chosen.
Should the television company opt to fill their "Super Sunday" slot, it will become the first time in 22 years that a top-flight game has been played on that day.
Sky are likely to want the best fixture of the weekend for their flagship show.
And Liverpool's visit to Arsenal is the stand-out clash from that week's programme of matches.
The only other Premier League game to take place on Christmas Eve occurred in 1995 when Leeds welcomed Manchester United to Elland Road - which was also on a Sunday.
December 24 has only fallen on a Sunday twice since then.
