Which Premier League teams have the busiest Christmas schedule

It’s that time of the year again when squads are going to be stretched and strained during what Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp calls a “crazy” festive schedule.

Premier League games will come fast and furious with teams having three games in seven or nine days over the Boxing Day and New Year’s Day schedules and it seems the top-flight fixture computer been kinder to some than others.

Newcastle United, battling relegation, Arsenal and Manchester City face some of the shortest turnarounds between matches, while Liverpool and Wolves have some of the longest.
