Newcastle host Liverpool in a potentially crucial early-season Premier League fixture.

For two sides who will hope to finish the season in the Champions League places, this is an opportunity to lay down a marker.

Both have made mixed starts to the new league season, with Newcastle impressive winners against Aston Villa on the opening day but beaten by Manchester City last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, meanwhile, followed a draw with Chelsea with a win over Bournemouth.

Team news

Joe Willock, Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo are unavailable to Eddie Howe, but Joelinton is set to be fit despite appearing to suffer an injury against Manchester City last weekend. Lewis Hall could feature in the squad for the first time since his move from Chelsea was confirmed.

Liverpool have received a boost with the rescinding of Alexis Mac Allister’s red card, and the Argentina international could start again in midfield. Jurgen Klopp expects Trent Alexander-Arnold to be fit, but Ibrahima Konate is a doubt with a muscular issue and the Liverpool manager remains without Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara.
