If you're into the festive spirit or not, it's a time to be cheerful. Football fans have trolled through the mud and the dirt, and a large chunk of Thursday night Europa League, to reach this blissful moment. Premier League action in quick succession. For the FPL player inside all of us, this is a magical time where Leicester and Everton, the two key FPL sides thus far this season go head to head. Arsenal hosting Man City, and Watford facing Liverpool means that GW17 is full of potential clashes. With The Hype Train's own Graphical Aid now back up and running, we've made some last minute graphics to get you thinking about GW17 in particular, and the issues heading into the Xmas fixture pile up.
