Manchester United travel to Leicester City in the early Boxing Day kick-off as second take on third.
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League outings, winning six of those matches, including a 6-2 thrashing of Leeds United the last time they were on league duties.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are currently one place and one point behind Brendan Rodgers' Foxes, albeit with a game in hand, and will be hoping to leapfrog their opponents in this festive fixture.
Solskjaer made the controversial choice to include midfield pair Fred and Scott McTominay ahead of Paul Pogba when Marcelo Bielsa's charges arrived at Old Trafford, but the Norwegian got his tactics spot on.
Although Leicester provide a different set of problems, the United manager will want to keep the alterations to a minimum given the level of performance on Sunday, however, McTominay's groin injury may see Pogba return to the starting XI.
David De Gea was restored from the first whistle at the weekend after playing no part in the 3-2 win over Sheffield United and should keep his place between the sticks ahead of a back four, including Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
United's forward line have been at their devastating best in their last two league fixture's scoring nine goals in total.
Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are certainties to feature from the off, but Solskjaer's big decision will be whether he keeps faith with Dan James or restores Mason Greenwood on the right-hand side.
