The festive period is often a busy one for the football season, particularly if you are a Premier League or EFL club.

The busy festive schedule is likely to see disruption amid the coronavirus pandemic  with last weeken'd fixtures falling victim to a rise in cases.

Should fixtures go ahead as planned, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will be working on establishing a lead at the top of the table by the end of the year, whilst the likes of Newcastle, Norwich and Burnley will see if they can break out of the relegation zone.

Many of those Premier League fixtures will be shown on TV, and there are a number of methods to watch them for free.

If games are being shown on Amazon Prime Video a free trial for that service can let you watch those matches.

Meanwhile, if games are being shown on Sky Sports you can get a one off Sports Day payment to get access for a day.
