Liverpool v Arsenal
First faces fifth at Anfield on Saturday evening, as Liverpool look to extend their lead at the top with a home victory over Arsenal.
The Reds have gone through the opening half of the season unbeaten and are top with 51 points from 19 games, extending their advantage to six points over the Christmas period.
Liverpool also boast an impressive recent head-to-head record against the Gunners, with the Merseysiders unbeaten in their last seven meetings - three wins and four draws.
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the hosts will be without James Milner due to injury, while Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dominic Solanke also remain on the sidelines. Alberto Moreno has recovered from a back problem and is expected to be named among the substitutes.
Meanwhile, Arsenal head to Merseyside with just two wins in their last five league games and with something of a defensive injury crisis.
Unai Emery is still without Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin, while Nacho Monreal's fitness is a concern, with the Spaniard set for a late fitness test. Another who Emery will make a late decision on is Shkodran Mustafi, who continues his recovery from a hamstring injury.
Arsenal are confident that Laurent Koscielny will play, despite the captain suffering a foot problem in Boxing Day's draw at Brighton.
The two teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in November, with Alexandre Lacazette equalising James Milner's opening goal. Klopp's men won this fixture 4-0 last term, with goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge.
