NBC Sports Group's “The 12 Days of Premier League” continues Thursday with the annual Boxing Day slate of 10 Premier League  games, featuring 17 consecutive hours of programming on NBCSN -- including more than 10 hours of live coverage -- beginning at 7 a.m. ET.

Coverage on Boxing Day begins with Premier League Live at 7 a.m. ET followed by one game at 7:45 a.m., eight at 10 a.m. -- the traditional 3 p.m. kickoff time in England -- and the big match of the day, Manchester City-Liverpool, at 12:30 p.m. ET. Postgame coverage includes Premier League Goal Zone, NBCSN’s Match of the Day and Premier League Encore on NBCSN.

Liverpool finds itself in first place, ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, but the Reds have a trip to fourth-place Chelsea on Sunday after their match against Man. City at the Etihad Stadium on Boxing Day.

Just two points separate the top five teams: Liverpool and Arsenal (both 36 points), Manchester City (35) and Chelsea and Everton (both 34). Defending champion Manchester United is in eighth place but only eight points out of first place in a league race that won't reach the halfway point until Matchday 19 to be played on Saturday and Sunday.

On New Year’s Day, “The 12 Days of Premier League” concludes with Day 12 as NBCSN will present 10 consecutive hours of live Premier League programming, also beginning at 7 a.m. ET. On the following weekend, play switches to the third round of the FA Cup, which is still carried by Fox Sports.
