See Why Arsenal, Man Utd & Chelsea Are Not Playing This Weekend In The Premier League

For the first time in its 30-year history, the Premier League will have a winter break.

However, it will be very different from what happens in other countries.

Eight teams will be in action on Saturday and Sunday, while the other 12 complete Match Day 26 next weekend.

This means, for instance, that Chelsea and Manchester United will have a full 15 days off, before they clash at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard has taken his Blues squad to Dubai, while the Red Devils are in Spain.

Arsenal are also using the break for warm-weather training in Dubai, as Mikel Arteta prepares his side for the final three months of a strange campaign.

The Gunners welcome Newcastle next Sunday.

The only top-six team in action this weekend, will be champions Manchester City, who host West Ham at the Etihad.
