Liverpool travel to St. James Park to face Newcastle as both sides look to record a second victory of the new Premier League season. The upcoming tie between the northern neighbors is highly anticipated, with both teams being tipped for a top 4 contest this season.

Liverpool's lineup is expected to include Alexander-Arnold and Luis Diaz, who have returned to training since Tuesday following the injury scares from Saturday's 3-1 win over Bournemouth.

Furthermore, the Reds have no players suspended for the Sunday meeting. The impact of Mac Allister's red card should've been a significant concern for the Anfield club. However, a successful appeal of the decision means that the World Cup winner will be available for the game.

On the other hand, Newcastle's lineup is yet to be confirmed, but the team is expected to field its strongest possible team to challenge Jurgen  Klopp's men.

Liverpool and Newcastle previous meetings

Last meeting between both sides saw Liverpool winners with a two-goal cleansheet.

Hence, the Reds have won four of their last games against Newcastle and drew two,  meaning the magpies have not won in six consecutive occasions against Jurgen  Klopp's Reds.

Did you know?

Newcastle are yet to win a match at Anfield since the founding of the club. They have bagged a total of 9 wins against Liverpool only on their home ground.

Meanwhile Liverpool have recorded 33 wins in total, both in Anfield and St. James Park.


Both teams looks to be in good form, but expectations are high for Newcastle to be out with a win over a Liverpool side that is still recouping themselves following their low-grade performances last season.
