The Football being played in January has been slow so far unless you have been a United fan. However, that promises to change thanks to the fixtures in the upcoming match week. There are two London derbies on the calendar while most other big teams have winnable fixtures. Let’s dive head first into the upcoming Premier League fixtures in January.

The Important Games in the upcoming fixtures
Wolves kick-off against Leicester City to mark the start of the upcoming games. January has been slow, and Liverpool is one team in very big need of a kick-on. The Reds host Crystal Palace at Anfield and will be looking to build momentum on their first win of the year against Brighton.
Manchester United will look to keep their Phoenix-esque rise under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer going. Pogba and Co. will be helped by the fact that they play a minnow at home in the form of Brighton.
Southampton lost their FA Cup replay to Championship’s Derby but would like to hold their guts together against Marco Silva’s Everton. Everton are in a better position to get something out of this match than Southampton but the desperation to get away from the relegation zone may Spur on their players to show up and fight. We know Everton don’t exactly savour their chances in a gritty fight this season.
Arsenal v Chelsea will be the first London Derby of the two arranged for the current matchday. The Emirates will see retiring Chelsea great Petr Cech watch from the bench as his new club host his old team. Chelsea has been lacking teeth in the attack, and Arsenal, well, sometimes have a couple of centre-backs missing from their line-ups. It should be an interesting match-up and full of goals.
There’s a lot more Football in January to Watch
Chelsea’s late kick-off is the last game of the Saturday fixture on January 19. The action is only shortly on hold as the next day brings reigning Champions into action as well as the eternal Champions to-be: Tottenham.
Huddersfield, perhaps still recovering (or unable to recover at all) from all the battle wounds they have received this season will probably hope for a quick end to their misery. City are the ideal team to do that. Expect at least three goals from Pep’s boys.
Concluding this gameweek of Football in January is another London Derby at the picturesque Craven Cottage. Fulham take-on mighty Spurs. Although, there could be something in it for the West Londoners as Spurs will leave behind Harry Kane and Son for the short trip across London.
There will be plenty of Football in January after the Premier League is done, with the Carabao Cup returning midweek with Semi-final second legs. Not a minute can be missed, and Potato Streams can help serve that purpose.
