AFTERNOON

13:50: Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.

We’re at Anfield today as Liverpool look to follow up Boxing Day’s thumping of Swansea with another positive result against Leicester.

And they might just be buoyed by the £75million signing of Virgil van Dijk, who will be watching from the stands.

Elsewhere Chelsea and Everton are looking to maintain their unbeaten runs while Newcastle and Brighton go head-to-head at St James’ Park.

It’s a festive buffet of football, and I’ll be your chef…

No idea what I meant by that.

Liverpool vs Leicester LIVE: Latest Premier League scores, goals and highlights from Anfield

LIVERPOOL vs LEICESTER

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson remains unavailable. He missed the Boxing Day win over Swansea with a hamstring injury and no date has been put on his return. Left-back Alberto Moreno could miss another three games with ankle trouble.

Leicester’s Daniel Amartey is available after suspension. Robert Huth (ankle), Danny Simpson (hamstring) and Matty James (Achilles) remain out for boss Claude Puel.

CHELSEA vs STOKE

Chelsea will remain without David Luiz and Charly Musonda. Luiz is struggling with a knee problem while Musonda has a groin injury.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has a defensive crisis to solve with Ryan Shawcross, Bruno Martins Indi and Kurt Zouma all out. Glen Johnson (knee) is also unavailable but full-back Erik Pieters could feature.

NEWCASTLE vs BRIGHTON

Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot is out through injury. The Republic of Ireland international will sit out the game with a thigh problem and will be replaced by Karl Darlow. Midfielder Isaac Hayden is available after shaking off the knock which has kept him out of the last two games.

Izzy Brown returns to the Brighton squad. The on-loan Chelsea forward was ineligible to face his parent club in Albion’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day. Boss Chris Hughton has a full-strength squad with the exception of long-term absentee Steve Sidwell.

BOURNEMOUTH vs EVERTON

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will give a number of players late fitness checks.

Defender Charlie Daniels (groin) and midfielder Harry Arter (calf) have been absent for the last two games, forward Josh King (hamstring) was substituted against West Ham last time out, while Andrew Surman missed that 3-3 draw.

Everton’s top scorer Wayne Rooney is available having recovered from the illness that ruled him out of the last two games.

James McCarthy, who has not made a first-team appearance since October due to a hamstring injury, should be fit for selection as well, but Idrissa Gueye (hamstring) remains a doubt.

HUDDERSFIELD vs BURNLEY

Huddersfield defender Chris Lowe hopes to recover from an ongoing foot problem in time to face the Clarets. Left-back Lowe sustained the injury in the recent win at Watford, but was forced off late on in the home draw against Stoke on Boxing Day. Head coach David Wagner has no new injury or suspension concerns.

Burnley expect to be without several first-team regulars. James Tarkowski completes a three-match suspension, left-back Stephen Ward (knee) is out and striker Chris Wood (leg) is not likely to be fit. Robbie Brady (knee) and Tom Heaton (shoulder) are long-term absentees.

WATFORD vs SWANSEA

Watford will check on midfielder Roberto Pereyra who was taken off just before half-time in the Boxing Day win over Leicester because of a leg muscle problem. Captain Troy Deeney is in the middle of a four-match suspension.

New Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal could have Wilfried Bony available for the trip. Bony has missed the last two Premier League games with a hamstring injury suffered in Paul Clement’s final match in charge. Tammy Abraham could return to the starting line-up but Ki Sung-yueng (calf) and Kyle Bartley (knee ligaments) are likely to miss out.
