Liverpool are away at Newcastle United on Wednesday with an opportunity to stretch their lead at the Premier League summit after surprisingly being held at home by West Bromwich Albion last time out.
Leicester City are three points behind while Manchester United are five points back with a game in hand and Everton will have to wait to see when their clash with Manchester City is rearranged after an outbreak of positive COVID-19 cases postponed Monday's encounter.
Newcastle are looking to snap a three-match winless run that has seen them ship eight goals for just three scored to sit seven points above the relegation zone.
