Liverpool host Newcastle in the Premier League this week in a battle of second vs 19th.
The Reds are looking to make it six wins in a row in order to keep the pressure and close the gap to Manchester City back to just a single point after their title rival’s 7-0 win over Leeds on Tuesday.
Here’s a look at the starting XI that Jurgen Klopp could pick…
Alisson (GK) – Will be happy with four clean sheets in his last five Premier League appearances and will expect another here.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) – Looking to build on his tally of seven Premier League assists for the season so far.
Ibrahima Konate (CB) – Could come back into the side to get more minutes under his belt in what promises to be a favourable fixture.
Virgil van Dijk (CB) – An ever-present in the Premier League this season since his return from long-term injury.
Andrew Robertson (LB) – Will surely be keen to start here, although there is case for Kostas Tsimikas to be involved.
Naby Keita (CM) – This could be seen as an opportunity to rest captain Jordan Henderson as the fixtures come thick and fast.
Fabhino (CM) – Will protect the back four and shut Newcastle down having been voted the best defensive midfielder around by our followers.
James Milner (CM) – Thiago has started the last five Premier League games in a row since recovering from injury so rotation wouldn’t be a surprise.
Mohamed Salah (RW) – A goal and assist across the last two games have directly contributed to successive 1-0 Liverpool wins.
Diogo Jota (ST) – May continue to start in place of Roberto Firmino, who has returned to full training but is likely to be be on the bench after injury.
Sadio Mane (LW) – This could be an opportunity to increase his goal tally for the season after not finding the net in his last six games in all competitions.
