A rare midweek round of Premier League fixtures and December can be moving month in the Premier League.

No more international breaks until the spring, and fixtures coming thick and fast until into the New Year.

These midweek challenges can make all the difference, with three games in a week or so. Suddenly gaps open at the top and bottom, and teams seemingly enjoying mid-table comfort are looking over their shoulders at the dreaded relegation zone.

Crystal Palace and Bournemouth are two of those clubs, and face each other at 11.30pm on Tuesday knowing a win will keep them looking up rather than down. Manchester City, surely now out of title contention, visit Burnley at a quarter past midnight in the other 'Tuesday' fixture.

Manchester United v Jose Mourinho is certainly the pick on Wednesday at 11.30pm, relegating the Merseyside derby at 12.15am to a sideshow (though possibly not for Liverpool and Everton fans).

The midweek bonus round is completed with Shefield United v Newcastle and Arsenal v Brighton on Thursday night/Friday morning. Two days later, they start the fun all over again.
