A report in yesterday's Telegraph by Sam Wallace claimed that the Premier League had confirmed the request by West Ham, which resulted in the Hammers being pitted against Bournemouth this coming 26 December.

However a spokesman from West Ham has denied this was the case. "There is categorically no agreement in place that means West Ham United have to play Boxing Day fixtures away from home," they said.

"It its not uncommon for emergency services or other stakeholders to make requests to the Premier League to avoid certain fixture dates, however these requests will not always be granted by the Premier League and we fully expect to play at London Stadium on Boxing Day in future seasons."
