Liverpool XI vs Newcastle: Team News, Injury Latest, Possible Lineup

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be tempted to make no changes for the visit of Newcastle.

The Reds have responded to growing concerns over their form with a thumping 9-0 of Bournemouth, which saw Roberto Firmino score two and assist three more.

Jurgen Klopp’s men just fell short in their Premier League title push last season and began the new campaign in surprisingly cumbersome form.

Liverpool were held to surprise draws by Fulham and Crystal Palace, before losing to previously out-of-sorts rivals United at a rocking Old Trafford.

Klopp’s side had a point to prove on Saturday, and did just that despite a lengthy injury list.

Diogo Jota will return to training on Thursday after missing this match.

Thiago Alcantara is further behind in his recovery progress but Calvin Ramsay is nearing a potential debut.

Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita are all sidelined, while Darwin Nunez is still suspended

Curtis Jones is in a race to be fit but unlikely to be risked either way, while Harvey Elliott is reportedly fine after being taken off as a precaution at the weekend.

“I think Diogo can train from Thursday on and Thiago I think slightly later, so we will see,” Klopp told reporters.

“Calvin is getting closer, Caoimhin [Kelleher] I saw now only walking outside going for normal goalkeeper training.

So yeah, there’s light at the end of the tunnel, definitely.”

Predicted Liverpool XI:

Alisson;

Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson;

Henderson, Fabinho, Elliott;

Salah, Firmino, Diaz.
