Team News

Newcastle
Liverpool
  • Steve McClaren has no fewer than 10 players sidelined due to injury, with the Newcastle boss without defensive duo Jamaal Lascelles and Mike Williamson, the latter of who was recalled from his loan spell with Wolves recently.
  • Papiss Demba Cisse is expected to lead the attack again following his goal in the 5-1 defeat at Crystal Palace last week.
  • Given the club's current injury crisis, McClaren could name an unchanged XI here.
  • Emre Can is suspended for the Reds here, but Lucas is available and should anchor the midfield.
  • Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge returned from injury at Southampton, but are not expected to start.
  • Jurgen Klopp is without Jon Flanagan, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings and Mamadou Sakho, while Philippe Coutinho will be assessed closer to kick off, though is expected to miss out.

Prediction

  • Newcastle's disasterous form continued with a 5-1 defeat at Crystal Palace last week and the Magpies are currently mired in the relegation zone. The club have just one league win to their name at home this season and need to quickly turn their fortunes around if they are to pull away from the bottom three.
  • Liverpool's impressive form has lifted them to within six points of top spot. The Reds have been excellent away from home under Jurgen Klopp having netting 14 goals in their last four competitive games on the road and will be confident of extending their four-game winning run on their travels on Sunday.
  • Given the hosts' current woes and Liverpool's performances on the road, the visitors are understandably favourites to win here.

  • Newcastle 1. Liverpool 3.

  • 0-5 NYWA

  • 1-5 to pool

  • newcastle will park the bus and liverpool will struggle to score 0-0 or 0-1

  • Courtois will play or not?

  • @HassanAshas seeing as Courtois plays for Chelsea, I'd say not

  • @WilliePete damn sorry :P I wanted to say Coutinho :P

  • 1X Double chance 100%

  • u will start seeing some mix of trouble in the midfield at the opposition without the assist of emry can or their captain...no goal

  • seeing liverpool making a comeback in the past few games... but that doesnt mean they are all superhuman miracle. in this match they will be too proud of them self and end up in a goal less draw

  • dont see liverpooling drawing/losing - 0:3

  • 1-3 Liverpool win

  • 0-2 goals

  • I think Newcastle will most likely score a goal at home. Liverpool are big favourites to win though

  • Got to be 4-0 to LFC.

  • 1 step up at 6th position, Liverpool! Liverpool win by great margin.....

  • Newcastel is an extraordinary team,beleave me .!!!

  • 1-0

  • Liverpool will win 1-3

  • 2-2

  • Coutinho, Sturridge and Firmino are the dangerous triangle of Liverpool that can they melee. I would love Benteke to play on the side of Sturridge in the line of attack

  • , Sturridge and Firmino are theCFirmino dangerous triangle of Liverpool that can they melee. Of course I would love Benteke to play on the side of Sturridge in the line of attack

  • @Homayoon excuse me was wrong

  • My boss has predicted 10-0 to Liverpool (Jokingly) after what they did to Saints in midweek and he supports Newcastle! Hopefully, that won't happen but i see Liverpool still winning but by like 1-0 or something... not a rugby score! :D

  • If Coutinho and Sturridge start; this could be embarrassing for Newcastle.

  • @David20 No quite the opposite

  • Newcastle United can win her

  • Liverpool to heap more misery on the Toon Army

  • Why is this match alone on Sunday, does the EPL really want to see us embarassed that much globally.
