Fixture: Liverpool vs Newcastle United
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 15:00 (UK time)

Liverpool have revealed the side they will send onto the Anfield pitch to play host to Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United team in a Premier League game today.

The Reds are sitting pretty at the top of the league table with a four-point lead over second placed Manchester City and will start as firm favourites to take all three points against the Magpies.




But Newcastle have only conceded seven goals in eight away league games this season and will try to frustrate Liverpool.

Boss Jurgen Klopp has Alisson in goal, while in defence he opts for a centre-back pairing between Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren. In midfield, Klopp selects Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Xherdan Shaqiri, while Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are up top.

The Liverpool manager can look to his bench to shake things up, with options available including Naby Keita and Fabinho.
