Liverpool vs Newcastle team news

Liverpool’s injury list remains lengthy and will be concerned by Harry Elliott’s possible muscle tweak against Bournemouth.

Darwin Nunez remains suspended, so there is unlikely to be many – if any – changes.

Newcastle will hope to hand a debut to new £60million striker Alexander Isak, who requires a work permit. Callum Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes are still a few weeks away.

Liverpool vs Newcastle prediction

Liverpool answered their critics in emphatic style against Bournemouth but Newcastle will prove a far sterner test, heading to Anfield still unbeaten.

The Reds’ problems of their opening three games will not have been fixed with a walkover win, so they will not have it all their own way.

A 1-1 draw.
