League leaders Liverpool travel to Bournemouth, while Tottenham host Burnley. On Sunday, Aston Villa will look to derail high-flying Leicester City’s superb form.

West Ham, meanwhile, look to win back-to-back home league games against Arsenal for the first time since October 1984 when they welcome the Gunners to London Stadium on Monday.
