Happy Boxing Day, football fans! I hope Santa left you everything you wanted under your tree yesterday and that you were able to spend the day with friends and family. And for those of you for whom Christmas is a struggle, I’m glad you made it through and I hope better times are ahead. Let’s have some fun today — put the favorite thing you got for Christmas in the comments below. (Mine: a LEGO bonsai tree kit from my son, super fun!)

One of the great Christmas football traditions is that of Boxing Day football — a full slate of matches that takes place the day after the big day. Tottenham Hotspur don’t play until Thursday — we remarkably have a mostly manageable holiday fixture schedule this season — but there are plenty of games for you to sink your teeth into as you finish up that egg nog. And because this is England, none of it is on TV in the UK — it’s all streamed on Amazon Prime Video. Hope you’ve got Prime subscriptions!
