Boxing day is one of the most interesting dates in Premier League, as all clubs have fixtures on that day and fans can freely enjoy games while enjoying their Christmas holidays as well.
Boxing Day football has been played since the very first season of the Football League when Preston won 5-0 at West Brom and Derby beat Bolton 3-2.
Since then, that Rendez-vous has become an important English football tradition.
Today, we want to look at how current Premier League clubs have performed on this day in their history.
