December 7, Saturday could be a day of early presents as it could be another great day for sports fans ahead of the Christmas.

The Day opens with Chelsea’s clash against Everton.

Chelsea make the trip to Goodison Park having strengthened their grip of the fourth position with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, with Wednesday night’s 5-2 defeat to Liverpool seeing the club drop into the relegation zone, Everton have decided to part ways with Marco Silva, replacing the Portuguese with Duncan Ferguson on a caretaker basis.

Later in the day is the first Manchester derby of the season. Manchester City welcome Manchester United to the Etihad Stadium for the 179th edition of the derby.

The Champions cruised to a 4-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor to return to winning ways, while United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on former manager Jose Mourinho’s first return to Old Trafford.

In boxing, we head to Saudi Arabia for Anthony Joshua’s first fight since he lost his IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO titles to Andy Ruiz Jr in June.

Joshua faces Ruiz, as he tries to win back the world titles the Mexican won to become the country’s first world heavyweight champion.

Alexander Povetkin fights Michael Hunter, in another heavyweight clash. Whoever wins will be waiting in the wings to take on the winner of the main event sometime in the future.

Away from the heavyweights, former WBA Super-Bantamweight World Champion Scott Quigg takes on Irishman Jono Carroll.

Time Zones mean that boxing fans can make the jump from the card in the Middle East to one in America with WBC Middleweight World Champion Jermall Charlo defending his title against Dennis Hogan.

On the undercard, Chris Eubank, Jr. makes his US debut against Matt Korobov in the co-main event for the Interim WBA Middleweight Title.
