Liverpool, who have 82 points and sit 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City, defeated Bournemouth, 2-1, last weekend behind goals from Salah and Sadio Mane. Arlo White and Graeme Le Saux will call Monday’s match from Goodison Park.
Tomorrow, Sergio Aguero and Manchester City host Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Arsenal at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Universo in a match which was rescheduled from March 1 due to Manchester City’s participation in the Carabao Cup Final.
