Chelsea have been identified as historically the most successful Premier League team over the festive fixtures during the past five seasons. Maurizio Sarri’s side are in line for plenty of Christmas cheer this month with Chelsea traditionally performing much better in December than the rest of the year. In fact, they win an average of 16 points across their December fixtures every season – a tally matched only by reigning champions Manchester City. On the other hand, West Ham and Southampton have endured some truly torrid December displays and prop up the Premier League table when it comes to average points won. This is easily the most impressive increase in the Premier League, although they still only average 12.4 points during the month which is slightly less than traditional big hitters Arsenal(13.4), Liverpool (14) and Man Utd (14.8).
