How Liverpool are expected to line-up against Newcastle

The Reds have responded to growing concerns over their form with a thumping 9-0 of Bournemouth, which saw Roberto Firmino score two and assist three more.

Jurgen Klopp’s men just fell short in their Premier League title push last season and began the new campaign in surprisingly cumbersome form.

Liverpool were held to surprise draws by Fulham and Crystal Palace, before losing to previously out-of-sorts rivals United at a rocking Old Trafford.

Klopp’s side had a point to prove on Saturday, and did just that despite a lengthy injury list. Diogo Jota, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsay and Naby Keita are all sidelined, while Darwin Nunez is still suspended

Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara are in face to be fit, and are unlikely to be risked either way, while Harvey Elliott is reportedly fine after being taken off as a precaution at the weekend.

Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Elliott; Salah, Firmino, Diaz.
