Gary Lineker hosts highlights from a busy Boxing Day of Premier League fixtures. Birmingham faced a visit from Chelsea, who have never lost at St Andrew's in the Premier League. Tottenham were at Fulham, who were responsible for Harry Redknapp's first defeat as Spurs manager in the corresponding fixture in 2008/09. Wolves travelled to Liverpool, having lost to an injury-time Sami Hyypia goal on their only previous Premier League visit to Anfield. Stoke visited Manchester City, hoping not to be on the wrong end of a Robinho hat-trick, a fate that befell them last season. Everton were looking for their fifth consecutive victory over Sunderland while West Ham hosted Portsmouth, having won 4-1 at Fratton Park when the sides met on Boxing Day last year. The day's other two games were north west derbies, with Burnley and Bolton meeting at Turf Moor and Wigan and Blackburn going head-to-head at the DW Stadium.
