Newcastle vs Liverpool live score, Premier League updates, highlights and line-ups
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have the chance to top the Premier League table when they visit Newcastle, if only for a few hours.
With Manchester City not playing until later in the afternoon, the Reds have the chance to put the pressure on their title rivals with a win over Tyneside.
Klopp’s side played on Wednesday night which means we’re likely to see a rotational element in the starting line-up today, but Liverpool can’t take too many risks against Eddie Howe’s resurgent Magpies. They’re ninth in the table and, despite a few absences, they’re sure to give Liverpool a stern test if they come into this game not fully focused.
Liverpool have earned more Premier League points than any other club since the start of the year (38), but incredibly Newcastle are second on this metric (32). Howe’s side don’t have much to play for, but as Newcastle go through a period of transformation, these players will be competing to be part of an ambitious setup going forward.
