Liverpool welcome Newcastle in the Premier League tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to continue their winning run.

Last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa was Liverpool’s seventh win in a row in all competitions as Mohamed Salah’s penalty was enough to claim an important three points in the Premier League.

The Reds are looking to keep pace with Manchester City and Chelsea in the title race but they tonight face a side who held them to two draws last campaign.

Newcastle come into tonight’s match 19th in the table following last weekend’s 4-0 defeat at Leicester and manager Eddie Howe will be desperate for points as he side begins a run that sees them play Premier League champions City and Manchester United over Christmas.

Here’s everything you need to know before this evening’s game.

The match will kick off at 8pm GMT on Thursday 16 December.
