Liverpool – Newcastle United LIVE In-Play – Liverpool have the opportunity to leapfrog Manchester United to second, albeit possibly only until Monday night. Jurgen Klopp’s side are one of just two groups left in the Premier League this year yet to lose in the home, although they have not suffered defeat at home to Newcastle since 1995.
Newcastle have just lost one of the last eight league games and are unbeaten in their past four – their very best run of results each season. The Magpies are just two things over the bottom three and will need to begin turning draws into wins, exemplified by the fact that they drove away a 2-0 lead against Bournemouth final weekend. Rafa Benitez hasn’t dropped in five previous games against former club Liverpool . however, it could be a surprise if they obtained a peek at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Nathaniel Clyne has awakened his first-team reunite for the U23s but isn’t expected to turn out here.
Infection maintained Georginio Wijnaldum and Danny Ings out from West Ham but he’s expected to recuperate for the trip of former club Newcastle.
Islam Slimani is still not prepared to create his Newcastle debut, even though a knee injury may retain Jonjo Shelvey out from his former team on Saturday. Ciaran Clark returned to the matchday squad last weekend but there’s still no indication of Jesus Gamez.
Anticipate Newcastle to lineup in a similar manner to the way they played Manchester City earlier in the season. Rafa Benitez has a choice to make whether to play Dwight Gayle contrary to his favorite competitor (four goals) or even Joselu, who’ll be better off holding the play.
