Welcome to Liverpool vs Newcastle
Liverpool entertain Newcastle at Anfield this evening looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League having won their first league match of the season on the weekend.
Alexander Isak, Newcastle’s record signing, has received clearance that his registration has gone through in time for him to be available for selection for tonight’s game.
Liverpool’s treatment room is still brimming with Diogo Jota, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsey and Naby Keita all carrying injuries.
Darwin Nunez is still suspended, while the fixture is likely to come too soon for Curtis Jones and Thiago, although both players are now closing in on returns.
Harvey Elliott was substituted as a precaution on the weekend and should be available for selection this evening.
As for Newcastle, Bruno Guimaraes, Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are all major doubts.
Despite Alexander Isak’s availability, Chris Wood may still lead the line for The Magpies.
Jonjo Shelvey and Emil Krafth are both definitely out for Newcastle, meaning Eddie Howe will be without a number of first-team regulars.
Sean Longstaff will likely partner Joe Willock and Joelinton in midfield while Ryan Fraser is expected to replace Saint-Maximin.
