TEAM NEWS
Liverpool striker Divock Origi is out after suffering ankle ligament damage in the win over Everton, although he could feature again this season.

Martin Skrtel is doubtful with a groin injury, while Christian Benteke is nearing a return after a knee problem.

Newcastle right-back Daryl Janmaat is out with a groin injury so Vurnon Anita should continue in his place.

Captain Fabricio Coloccini is still sidelined with a groin problem, but Kevin Mbabu returns from injury.

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head

  • It is 22 years since Newcastle's last league win at Anfield - a 2-0 triumph on Kevin Keegan's first return to the ground as a manager on 16 April 1994.
  • Liverpool's unbeaten home run in this fixture stretches to 20 league games (W17, D3).
  • The Magpies have had six players sent off in their last seven Premier League games against the Reds, including four in the last three trips to Anfield.
Liverpool

  • Liverpool have won back-to-back Premier League games at Anfield for the first time since May 2015.
  • Jurgen Klopp's side are unbeaten in their last five league matches at home (W3, D2) and have only lost one of the last nine.
  • James Milner has recorded 11 assists in 2016 in all competitions, three more than any other Premier League player.
  • Daniel Sturridge has scored 50 goals in only 87 appearances for Liverpool.
Newcastle

  • Newcastle have won just three of their last 30 Premier League away matches (W3, D3, L24), losing the last nine in a row.
  • The Magpies are yet to pick up a point on their travels in 2016 - their last came when they won at Tottenham on 13 December.
  • Since that match, Newcastle haven't led in any of their away games.
  • The Magpies have conceded three or more goals on 10 different occasions in the Premier League this season, a joint-league high with Aston Villa.

Have to be careful here that Liverpool don't get complacent as Newcastle will be right up for this game. Liverpool put 6 past Southampton the other month and next played Newcastle who turned them over when they hadn't won in months. If Liverpool play as they have this last month with intensity and desire, they'll win easily; otherwise if there is too many changes with Villarreal just round the corner and underestimate the opposition, they'll drop points.

Draw or a loss...we will play a weak team since we have Villareal game midweek. Newcastle have something to play for and will be up for it.

Nothing clubs like neverton need a trophy to stay relevant. Over the years we have kept them relevant...soon that won't be the case if they continue to get spanked like on Wednesday.

Sakho not available for selection as UEFA have launched a doping investigation against him. He's dropped until the investigation concludes.

Fucking hell that probably means Shitkel is going in against Villarreal. That's season over.

At least they're making the effort. More than can be said for Everton last week.

Good chance for 2-2 there, Cisse fumbled it and Towsend fucked it right up.
