Forget about Liverpool's attacking problems, they're rock solid
Team to Watch - Bolton
Bolton will host Newcastle on Boxing Day full of confidence having beaten relegation rivals Blackburn earlier in the week to move off the foot of the table.
It was an excellent result psychologically, because only once has the team that lies bottom at Christmas avoided relegation.
They will fancy their chances of picking up back-to-back wins too, as Newcastle have struggled for form in recent weeks since losing several key players to injury.
The Magpies have not won in five games, since losing their unbeaten record, drawing twice and losing three times during that run.
They have also leaked 11 goals in those five matches, compared to just six in their previous 10 encounters.
Team to Avoid - QPR
Since recording an impressive 3-2 win against Stoke at the Britannia, it's all gone pear shape for QPR.
The Hoops have gone five games without winning, losing four of those and recording just a solitary draw at home to West Brom.
Despite entering the Premier League as Championship champions they are the lowest placed of the three promoted clubs and are now just two points above the relegation zone.
On Monday they come up against one of their fellow new boys and go in to the clash against Swansea as underdogs, despite getting the better of the Welsh outfit last season.
Neil Warnock's last gasp collection of deadline day signings impressed in their first outings together, notably against Newcastle and Wolves.
However, it hasn't taken the rest of the league long to work them out and they'll struggle again when they come up against a settled and well organised Swansea side.
Banker Clean Sheet - Liverpool
Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool have gone three games without conceding a goal and that should become four in a row when Blackburn visit Anfield on Boxing Day.
With just 13 goals conceded, they have the best defensive record in the league and they've only shipped two goals in their last five games.
The Reds may have struggled to hit the back of the net themselves, but the consistent selection of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel in the centre of defence has been rewarded with a total of seven clean sheets.
In contrast Blackburn have lost three games in a row and dropped to the foot of the table when they lost to relegation rivals Bolton on Tuesday night.
Injuries and Suspensions
Manchester United utility man Phil Jones is set to undergo a scan on the jaw injury he picked up against Fulham on Wednesday night.
Team-mate Ashley Young was also withdrawn in that game, having earlier come on as a substitute, with a knee injury and faces up to three weeks out.
Aston Villa are expected to welcome back Darren Bent, Emile Heskey and James Collins for the Boxing Day trip to Stoke, but Alan Hutton will serve a one-match ban.
Everton winger Seamus Coleman has been ruled out of the trip to Sunderland with a thigh injury.
Swansea full-back Neil Taylor faces a scan on the knee injury he picked up in Wednesday night's defeat at Goodison Park.
Bolton have announced that the foot injury sustained by full-back Marcos Alonso against Blackburn on Tuesday evening is not as bad as first feared.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is expected to play the entire busy festive period, as he has until January 3rd to appeal against his eight-match ban for alleged racial abuse.
