Chelsea have now won 12 matches in a row and are only a home victory against Stoke from tying the Premier League record  of 13 wins in a row. Two weeks later, they will head to White Hart Lane with a chance to break that mark.

Liga MX Playoffs- Final Second Leg (From Sunday)
UANL 1-1 Club America (2-2 on aggregate, 3-0 on penalties)

In an absolute thriller that I wish had not taken place on Christmas Day, Tigres get a late equalizer from Edson Alvarez and win in penalties to take their second consecutive Apertura title.

Headlines
We're heading into the January transfer window, which is the less crazy of the two periods where players can move between clubs. With the Christmas season usualyl leading to slow news days, I'll use this space to issue my usual warning of being aware of the nonsensical rumors that fly around this time of year. Over the coruse of the next month, you will read a story or hear a pundit discuss an infinite number of possible trasfers. Maybe two of these will actually happen. You will not see any rumors reported here, only actual signings. I will not be responsible for proliferating any whispers of Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid, or Messi heading to Manchester City.

Today's Match
