What every Premier League club’s fan wants to open on Christmas day

Tonight, as millions around the world wait for a jolly fat guy to break into their house, eat their food and pinch their alcohol, talkSPORT.com wonders what each Premier League club’s fans wants on Christmas Day.

Chelsea – A new striker

Dear Father Christmas, if you could give Chelsea fans a new striker, that would be great

It’s the one glaring bullet point underlined in triplicate at the top of every Chelsea supporter’s Christmas list this year. The Blues’ decision to sell Diego Costa at the behest of Antonio Conte has been nothing short of a disaster due to the fact that replacement Alvaro Morata has desperately lacked consistency and struggled under the mental pressures of the role. Back-up striker Olivier Giroud has not been much better and so a new front man (preferably one who can score goals on a regular basis) is badly needed.

Bournemouth – A lifetime contract for Eddie Howe

Christmas is all about the Son of God, but Bournemouth have their own lord and saviour, who will be celebrated on the south coast. Where would the Cherries be without Eddie Howe? He’s the man who has guided them from the brink of collapse to the Premier League, playing what many would call ‘the right brand of football’. It can only be a Christmas wish, but how happy would Bournemouth fans be if Howe signed a contract keeping him at Dean Court forever.
