Christmas 2018 sport TV guide: festive football, rugby and darts highlights on BT Sport and Sky Sports

Liverpool v Arsenal (bosses Jurgen Klopp and Unai Emery pictured below) on BT Sport is the highlight of 29 December, with another treble on Sky Sports the next day.
Everton v Leicester and Cardiff v Tottenham see us into 2019 on New Year’s Day.
