Sky Sports has announced 17 live matches in December, with both the Manchester and Merseyside derbies to be shown on one Super Sunday.

Both Liverpool vs Everton and Manchester United vs Manchester City will be shown on a bumper Nissan Super Sunday on December 10, the day after Chelsea go to London rivals West Ham in the early Saturday kick-off.

Both derbies will be of huge significance ahead of a busy festive period, which kicks off with Arsenal vs Liverpool on Friday Night Football on December 22.

There is plenty more to look forward in the lead up to Christmas with Everton vs Chelsea and Leicester vs Manchester United live on Sky on December 23, while December’s Monday Night Football offering sees Everton host Swansea on the 18th.

Tottenham host Southampton at Wembley in the early kick-off on Boxing Day, before Swansea go to Liverpool in the tea-time showdown.

Newcastle host Manchester City a day later at St James’ Park, and Arsenal will look to atone for last season’s 3-0 defeat at Selhurst Park as they visit Crystal Palace on December 28.
