Can anyone stop Liverpool now they have hit the summit?

All rather ominous for Liverpool's rivals to see the champions climb to top spot in the Premier League with the dramatic 2-1 win over previous leaders Tottenham in midweek.

Jurgen Klopp's side have not hit the form of last season, but with all teams showing some inconsistency this campaign they have enough to be on top of the pile, and will now take some shifting.

This is now the business part of the season, with the busy festive period often indicating who will march on, and who will struggle.

Liverpool are first in action on Saturday with a trip to Crystal Palace, followed by Southampton against Manchester City, Everton up against Arsenal and Fulham at Newcastle United.

Sunday's opener has Brighton hosting Sheffield United, then Tottenham face Leicester, a cracker for Manchester United against Leeds, and the day ends with West Bromwich Albion against Aston Villa,

The remaining two games of the round are on Monday, with Burnley hosting Wolves, and Chelsea against London rivals West Ham United.
