This week is a big one in the English football calendar with four games over a ten day period – the winter fixtures. The biggest day of all is today, Boxing Day, which has traditionally been one of the highlights of the football calendar in Britain, with lots of local derbies.

We take a look at some of the big games in the English league at this crucial time. Our guest predictor this week is Makoto, an admirer of Barcelona.
