PL AT HALF: Four goals across six 10 a.m. ET Boxing Day kickoffs
The Premier League’s 10 a.m. ET kickoffs took a while to get going, but look primed for breakout second halves.
Crystal Palace 0-0 West Ham – NBC Sports Gold [STREAM]
Not much doing aside from one chance produced by Wilfried Zaha wizardry.
Everton 0-0 Burnley – NBC Sports Gold [STREAM]
The Toffees are looking in line for a new manager bounce, out-shooting the Clarets 12-2 at the break but yet to push one over the line.
Sheffield United 1-1 Watford – NBC Sports Gold [STREAM]
Diminutive star Gerard Deulofeu scored off a Nathaniel Chalobah feed as Nigel Pearson’s Hornets took a lead that lasted only 11 minutes thanks to Oliver Norwood.
Chelsea 0-1 Southampton – NBCSN [STREAM]
Michael Obafemi, you sure can paint a pretty picture.
Aston Villa 0-0 Norwich City – NBC Sports Gold [STREAM]
Every bit the six-pointer, with the Canaries the only side to really threaten much of anything.
Bournemouth 1-0 Arsenal – NBC Sports Gold [STREAM]
There is no question Arsenal was the better side over the first half-hour, but the Gunners defense let them down again. Jack Stacey wound up deep in the Arsenal box and cut back into a sea of players, and Dan Gosling’s foot was the first to the ball.
