That's all for now!

It's been a pleasure taking you through the action at St. James' Park tonight and thank you for joining me!

 

23:05a month ago

Frustrating evening for Liverpool!

It took Liverpool til deep into the second half to really put the Magpies under pressure.

 

Shades of similarities to how they dropped points to West Bromwich Albion might worry the Liverpool fans.

 

They stay top of the pile but the chasing pack will have watched proceedings tonight with encouragement.

23:02a month ago

Much better from Newcastle United!

Steve Bruce will undoubtedly be delighted with the performance tonight.

 

In the first half, the Magpies gave as good as they got with their limited amount of possession and managed to deal with Liverpool in the second half after they upped their game.

 

Karl Darlow will deservedly take a lot of the plaudits but honourable mentions must go to all of the Toon defenders, especially Fabian Schär whose goal line clearance epitomised what Newcastle were about today.

 

Callum Wilson came in for some praise on the Amazon Prime commentary for his strong hold up play and that was key in restricting the flow of the champions.

Half time analysis

Newcastle will be pretty happy with their work this evening!

 

It is no surprise that they have had little of the ball but it is what they have managed to do with the ball that separates this performance from recent showings.

 

United have had their moments in this game and Callum Wilson has caused the Reds some problems; the forward's hold up play has been fantastic and the makeshift Liverpool defence know they have a game on their hands.

 

As the half went on, Liverpool have gradually been showing more of their incredible attacking flair and had it not been from a few top saves from Darlow, they would find themselves in front at the break.

 

All to play for in the second half!

Previous meeting

Last time the two clubs met was on the final day of the 2019/20 season at St. James' Park.

 

The hosts took a shock lead after just 25 seconds with Dwight Gayle adding his fifth goal since Project Restart.

 

The newly crowned champions were back on terms before the interval with Virgil Van Dijk heading home.

 

Goals from Divock Origi and Sadio Mané in the second half meant Liverpool ran out comfortable 3-1 winners on Tyneside and finished the season with an incredible 99 points.

What Klopp said

"The boys are a top group. They were a top group after winning 7-0, they're a top group after drawing with West Brom, so that doesn't change.


"Maybe the perspective from outside has changed, I can imagine that's immediately like this. I'm not a young manager anymore; I can judge these things in the right ways."


He continued to give praise for his opposition, claiming that the Magpies "have a couple of really good players." and that it would be a "tough test" for his side on Tyneside.

12:59a month ago

What Bruce said

"They're (Liverpool) a very very very good side, we know what to expect and we need to go out there and perform like we did against Manchester City."

How to Watch

If you choose to watch the game live, it is available on Amazon Prime.


Kick off is 20:00 with coverage starting half an hour earlier.

12:49a month ago

Both sides on the back of disappointing performances.

Neither side should be too happy after their last performance.


The hosts didn't lay a glove on Manchester City as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the Etihad whilst Liverpool dropped points at Anfield, drawing 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion.


This is where similarities between the two team's form end.


United have been underwhelming to say the least in the last four games and it is less than two weeks since the reds hit seven at Selhurst Park.

12:44a month ago

Predicted Lineup - Liverpool

Allison, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Fabinho, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Mane, Salah, Firmino . (4-3-3)
12:39a month ago

Predicted Lineup - Newcastle United

Darlow, Yedlin, Clark, Fernandez, Schar, Lewis, Almiron, M.Longstaff, Hayden, Ritchie, Wilson. (5-4-1)

Liverpool team news

Liverpool have their own well documented injury concerns and will be without a long list of players for their trip up North. 


Most recently, Joel Matip and Naby Keita add to list of casualties.


Other notable players that are out include; Diogo Jota, Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas and Virgil Van Dijk.


Summer signing Thiago Alcantara is yet to really get going on Merseyside as a result to injuries but he has been back in training and could provide a huge boost to Jurgen Klopp in the coming weeks.

12:29a month ago

Newcastle United team news.

COVID-19 continues to have an impact on the Magpies and both club captain Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin will miss out as a result of the long term impact of the virus.


The former has returned to light training and Steve Bruce will be hopeful that he won't be without his skipper for too much longer.


The latter seems further away and unsubstantiated reports claim that the winger has returned to France as he recovers.


In other news, Martin Dubravka has been back in training this week but it is probably still too soon for the Slovakian international to return to the squad.

12:29a month ago

Kick Off Time!

Play will get underway at 20:00 GMT in Newcastle upon Tyne.
