The Christmas period is always a very busy one in the Premier League. Bet365 Christmas PromotionWhile other leagues across Europe in the likes of Germany, Spain and Italy, will close their league down for the winter break, teams in England will face a hectic period of games including three games in the space of around 9 or 10 days from 26th December to the 2nd January.
