Boxing Day Soccer: Who Are The Traditional Winners & Losers?

As Boxing Day soccer is tradition, you’ll find that some teams enjoy playing on the day more than others. Over the years, Manchester United and Brighton fans have enjoyed very happy Christmas’, while the likes of West Ham and Burnley do not look forward to “the most wonderful time of the year”, with win ratios of just 30%.

West Ham face a tough trip to Selhurst Park, and with the run of bad form they are in, it could be real trouble for the Hammers.

Manchester United are the top team on Boxing Day, taking on Newcastle who have won just a third of their Boxing Day games.
