Arsenal - Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil will be preparing to battle BATE Borisov on Thursday evening at the Emirates, although the German playmaker did manage to show his face in aid of AFC Foundation and Teenage Cancer Trust, a 'yearly tradition' which would undoubtedly lift the spirits of the young, brave people fighting their way through their own harsh, critical illnesses. 

​​AFC Bournemouth - Asmir Begovic

With Christmas being just around the corner, many out there in the world may still be scratching their heads on what to buy for their loved ones. It's a tough task picking that special gift, but perhaps Asmir Begovic has that ultimate stocking filler after all.


Brighton & Hove Albion - Tim Krul

To become a professional football player, grassroots standard on a Sunday morning is usually where it all starts, and in order to unearth the next roster of future stars. 

Tim Krul helped endorse a new scheme in the North East by supplying Killingworth Young People Club with shirts manufactured by new sports brand PEAK.


Burnley - Anders Lindegaard

Sometimes a city break is all someone needs to get back to themselves, and with former Manchester United keeper Anders Lindegaard being nowhere near Burnley's starting XI recently, perhaps that's exactly what he's had.

Chelsea - Eden Hazard

Personal grooming is also a must, as being a pivotal public figure is a huge factor of being a world renowned name. But Eden Hazard, who usually looks as sharp as a knife, chose to place his faith in David Luiz's presumably steady hands, by allowing the Brazilian to shave him with a blade at the club's Cobham-based training ground.

Crystal Palace - Wilfried Zaha

Parental duties now, and Palace's Wilfried Zaha certainly knows how to entertain his child at Kidspace, but that didn't stop the nipper from spoiling the winger's father/son photo. 

Pictures are just a waste of valuable climbing time when there's so much fun to be had - better luck next time, Wilf', the ball pit is simply more interesting than your love and adoration.


Everton - Wayne Rooney

Everton managed to flounder in Europe this term even with their star-studded squad, and with Manchester United progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League, Wayne Rooney returned to Old Trafford to witness his old employers beat CSKA Moscow 2-1.

​​Huddersfield Town - Aaron Mooy

Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy may be a long way from home, but that doesn't mean that his family can't visit him from down under. Mooy spent some needed quality time with his brother, Alex, who quite obviously read the memo - England is cold in December, not hot.

​​Leicester City - Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy's wife, Rebekah, spent some time in the jungle on 'I'm a Celebrity', and as any devoted husband would do, the hitman spent the majority of his free time routing for his missus.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say, so it's natural for 'Vards' to pine for his significant other, but nevertheless, what a softy.

​​Liverpool - Daniel Sturridge

Well, at least Daniel Sturridge is making club appearances, albeit in a nightclub, that is. The England striker was snapped enjoying Liverpool's nightlife with a couple 'bruddas', looking stylish and composed.

​​Manchester City - Kyle Walker

Store appearances are a privilege to host, and Kyle Walker - partnered by Kevin De Bruyne - spent an afternoon in Manchester with a group of enthralled fans at a JD Sports shop.



Manchester United - Luke Shaw

The sideline has been the norm for Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw in recent months, so the sight of the 22-year-old bounding up and down the touchline is very welcome indeed. 

Shaw featured for United during their 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday evening, a victory which would have filled the injury-hampered defender with much needed confidence.

​​Newcastle United - Rob Elliot

Newcastle United keeper Rob Elliot is definitely getting into the festive spirit, with a popular Christmas flick being elected to watch in his household. 

Elf will always be a firm, undisputed classic, although the 'elf on the shelf' gag is sadly dead in the water. 

​​Southampton - Oriol Romeu/Maya Yoshida

Every employer should throw a Christmas do for their employees. It's a great way to keep morale high going into the new year, and Southampton understand the importance of keeping their players stimulated, happy and full of warming Christmas cheer - just look at Oriol Romeu and Maya Yoshida's pearly whites and suspect bow-ties.

Stoke City - Jack Butland

Dogs are man's best friend, but not when they're covered in mud and muck. Jack Butland is regularly caked in dirt after leaping around his goalmouth, but after snapping his sodden dog, it's clear to see that the England international wasn't best pleased with his puppy's over curious antics.

​​Swansea City - Oliver McBurnie

Scotsmen are proud, especially when it comes to football allegiances, and after Celtic fell to a 1-0 loss against Anderlecht in the Champions League, it's presumed that Oliver McBurnie isn't a fan of the Scottish champions.

Tottenham Hotspur - Serge Aurier

Whatever Tottenham Hotspur's Serge Aurier is contemplating, it's certainly consuming a lot of his attention. Maybe it's what he's going to have for dinner, maybe he's forgotten to record his favourite box-set drama, or perhaps he's wondering why he left the house in such a ghastly outfit. Who knows, who knows.


Watford - Jose Holebas

Family time, is not family time without food. Watford's Jose Holebas had his clan crowded round a table, sharing the good times with a can of Coke or two. 

A wholesome meal and family banter is what December is all about essentially, though by the sight of it, their grub would be getting pretty darn cold. 

​​West Bromwich Albion - Salomon Rondon

Dogs are just great. They're dopey, loyal and they're certainly not camera shy. West Brom's Salomon Rondon captured his mutt running rings around the garden whilst in pursuit of something which is entirely unknown.

​​West Ham United - Joe Hart

Joe Hart encapsulated the magic and longevity behind the nation's most prestigious cup competition by posting a pure relic, an archaic photo of a young, fresh-faced Hart in a baggy Shrewsbury Town jersey.
