BT Sport viewers can look forward to two Barclays Premier League double headers over the festive season - the highlights of an action-packed December.

On Boxing Day (Friday December 26th), football fans can watch Manchester United take on Newcastle United at Old Trafford (kick-off 3pm), before Arsenal host QPR at the Emirates (5:30pm).

Fast-forward to New Year's Day (Thursday January 1st) and there are two more top matches on the TV schedule: Manchester City v Sunderland (3pm) and Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea (5:30pm).

Sandwiched in between the two double headers is a clash between Spurs and Manchester United at White Hart Lane on Sunday December 28th (12pm).

In total, there are seven Barclays Premier League games in total for BT Sport subscribers to look forward to during December - plus two more on New Year's Day.

The action gets underway on Tuesday December 2nd, when Liverpool travel to Leicester City for a 7:45pm kick-off.

Just 24 hours later, Arsenal will host Southampton, in another game live on BT Sport.

Newcastle United face Chelsea at 12:45pm on Saturday December 6th, while Manchester City take on Crystal Palace at the same time on Saturday December 20th.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said viewers are in for a "Christmas feast" again this year.

He claimed the double headers on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day were "extremely popular" with football fans in the 2013-14 season.

And as such, BT Sport is presenting viewers with the same gift this year.

“In the space of a few hours on New Year’s Day, viewers will be able to assess the title credentials of current holders Manchester City and then early pacesetters Chelsea," Mr Green stated.

"Jose Mourinho’s side have made a superb start to the season and it will be fascinating to see if they’ve kept up the momentum by New Year and are able to come away from White Hart Lane with three points."

Mr Green noted that BT Sport is free for a second season with BT broadband - since subscribers are able to watch the channels online and via the BT Sport app, even if they don't take BT TV services.

He said that, with 18 of the 'top-pick' Barclays Premier League matches available on the platform, the broadcaster is bringing more of the key games to a wider audience.
