Liverpool will be looking to continue their rejuvenation under Jurgen Klopp as they head to St James’ Park to face a struggling Newcastle side on Sunday.
The Merseyside club currently sit sixth in the table and could move level on points with Spurs in fifth should they win today.
The Reds have been the darlings of the football media this week, having thrashed Southampton 6-1 at St Mary’s on Wednesday night, leading to calls that Jurgen Klopp’s side can challenge for the top four and beyond this season.
There are many reasons to understand such optimism, with the emphatic return of Daniel Sturridge in midweek being just one of many other valid considerations.
The team news for Liverpool makes for some interesting reading as Daniel Sturrdige does not make the starting XI, and Christian Benteke leads the line for the Reds.
Newcastle manager Steve McClaren will be praying for a miracle, after watching his side slump to an awful 5-1 defeat to Crystal Palace during their last Premier League encounter.
The former England boss has called on his side to stand up and be counted and we wait to see whether or not his players can respond against an in form Liverpool side.
For Newcastle, Papiss Cisse starts following his goal against Crystal Palace.
