Winter of content for sports fans

HOPES of extra festive footfall have been given a boost after Sky Sports and BT Sport unveiled their December fixtures.

The action starts on December 2 as Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side host Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Sky Sports, followed by Manchester United’s visit to Arsenal on BT Sport 1.

A day later, leaders Manchester City will take on West Ham, shown on Sky Sports.

However, Pep Guardiola’s men face harder tasks throughout the following two weekends with a daunting visit to Old Trafford a week later (December 10) on Sky Sports.

There’s no let up for the blue half of Manchester as they entertain Tottenham at home less than a week later (December 16) on BT Sport.

Meanwhile, in boxing, the highly anticipated heavyweight rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye will take place on Sunday December 17 on Sky Sports Box Office.
