How Newcastle United could line up against Liverpool today


Steve Bruce’s side are coming into this game against the Premier League champions on the back of a four game winless run in all competitions, losing three in that time.

Newcastle United would be hoping to put a recent string of poor results behind them when they line up against Liverpool later today.

Steve Bruce’s side are coming into this clash on a four game winless run in all competitions, losing three in that time and conceding nine goals in the process. That streak has also saw the Magpies getting dumped out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Championship side Brentford.

Throw into the mix the fact that no side in the English top-flight has scored more goals than Jurgen Klopp’s men – who have also enjoy a three-point lead at the top of the Premier League, and the Magpies might be on the receiving end of a hammering today.

As if that wasn’t enough to demoralize Newcastle fans, their side’s form against the Big Six in the 2020/21 season will also add to their concerns. The Magpies haven’t defeated a single side that finished in the first 6 places of the league last season, with their only point coming in a 1-1 draw at Tottenham in September.

How Newcastle could line up against Liverpool today

Steve Bruce’s side will be without a number of key players later today, with Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles still not able to shrug off the effects of catching COVID-19. The duo is therefore expected to watch today’s game from the sidelines.

The Newcastle manager also won’t be able to nominate both Jonjo Shelvey and Ryan Fraser in the line up against the Reds, as the duo will miss out the clash due to groin injuries. First-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, meanwhile, remains a long-term absentee.
