    Klopp respects Newcastle turnaround

    Asked his thoughts on today's opponents, Liverpool's manager was more than aware of the hard work that has got Newcastle to their current position in the table:

    They are on an incredible run. Eddie has played a massive part. They signed one of our analysts (Mark Leyland) which for sure a big part. Mark, if you see this….we play completely different now!

    Fans go wild for Klopp signature

    Liverpool have had a great week with their first leg win over Villarreal then followed up by their manager signing an extension to his contract which will keep him at Anfield until 2026.

    Pep Lijnders and Peter Krawietz have also penned similar deals as the Reds' coaching team prepare for another four years at the club.

    For The Reds' fans, these deals represent a huge coup for Liverpool.

    Howe to completely change fortunes

    Newcastle could win five consecutive Premier League games for the first time since November 2014.

    That run, under Alan Pardew, included a 1-0 home victory over Liverpool.

    The Magpies have won six consecutive home league matches and have lost just one of their last 12 top-flight games at St James' Park.

    Point to prove to old club

    Ex-Liverpool player Jonjo Shelvey always feels he has a point to prove in this fixture after his career at Anfield never really took off.

    Facing Liverpool seems to raise the midfielder's game.

    He scored a fantastic goal at Anfield earlier in the season but his team were to go on and lose the game 3-1.

    Recent history favours The Reds

    Newcastle are winless in 10 Premier League outings against Liverpool (D4, L6).

    Liverpool are aiming to go five top-flight games unbeaten at St James' Park for the first time since May 1969.

    The Reds have failed to win seven of their previous ten league trips to Newcastle (D3, L4).

    No room for poor displays

    Coach Eddie Howe spoke about what he will need from his squad if they are to stand any chance of pulling off a victory at St James’ Park today:

    We know that nothing but our best tomorrow will be good enough. We have to be perfect defensively but we still have to give them a threat the other way. I think we have the players to do that but we need them at their very best levels.

    Schedule dictates Klopp plans for game

    Having played in the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday, Liverpool go into the early kick off feeling they have had less recovering time than their rivals Man City.

    Reportedly The Reds asked for this game to be rescheduled due to the tight turnaround.

    With their second leg of their Champions League semi-final being in Spain on Tuesday, the Liverpool manager will be hoping to have this game won early so he can rest some of his stars.

    Rotation playing part in success

    Eddie Howe decided to leave Miguel Almiron, Fabian Schar and Jonjo Shelvey out of the starting line-up against Norwich City last weekend.

    Having had a full week to recover from that triumph, all three are expected to be drafted back in.

    Klopp is expected to rotate his side again with Joel Matip, Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and potentially even Joe Gomez expected to come back into the side.

    Welcome to Newcastle vs Liverpool

    Newcastle welcome quadruple-chasing Liverpool to St James’ Park for today’s early kick off, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having the chance to go top of the table with Man City playing at Leeds later in the day.

    A combination of an effective January transfer window along with the hard work of Eddie Howe and his coaching staff have transformed Newcastle from relegation contenders to top-half hopefuls for the final few weeks of the season and optimism could not be higher among The Magpies faithful at the moment.

    Eddie Howe has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Liverpool, Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson are edging closer to returns from foot and calf issues but this game will be too soon for them.

    Joelinton came off with a knock at Carrow Road but it is not thought to be anything serious and a return to a deeper role for the Brazilian could see Chris Wood come back to lead the line.

    Liverpool will be without striker Roberto Firmino as he continues to struggle with a foot injury.

    Curtis Jones and Kostas Tsimikas missed the midweek win over Villarreal with non-covid related illness and could both return to the squad this weekend.
