In spite of their recent mini-revival under Duncan Ferguson, Everton have endured nothing short of a disastrous first half of the season, culminating in the sack of Marco Silva earlier in the month.
As the festive programme of Premier League really starts to hot up, they play host to Lancashire outfit Burnley at Goodison Park on Boxing Day afternoon.
The Clarets, usually the model of consistency, are enduring an uncharacteristic up-and-down campaign as they jostled in and around the top six in the early part of the term but have now slid towards the wrong end of the table.
When was the last time you could watch an English top-flight match from Goodison Park for free? Well, this Boxing Day you can and it’s all down to Amazon Prime Video.
They will be streaming every Premier League game on the two days after Christmas and all you need is a 30-day free trial with the service only costing £7.99 per month or £79 annually after that – if you’re an existing customer, you get it all anyway!
There’s no reason to miss out on this piece of history with pundits like Alan Shearer and Alex Scott and commentators such as the legendary Clive Tyldesley, the ability to watch three matches at the same time and turn off commentary to listen to stadium atmosphere, and the crisp clearness of 4K Ultra HD, not forgetting a Goals Centre feature that enables one to watch the goals as they go in around the grounds.
And of course, live Premier League football isn’t the only reason to sign up for Amazon Prime – you also get free UK next day delivery on items from their popular website.
