Arlo Gibbons


Liverpool will be heading to St. James Park to take on Newcastle with the hope of continuing their unbeaten run. They come into the match with their first win of the season under their belts and will have Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alexis Mac Allister available. Alexander-Arnold has passed a fitness check after getting a knock against Bournemouth, while Mac Allister’s red card from the previous match was rescinded.

Newcastle started the season strongly with a 5-0 victory over Aston Villa, but they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in their last match. They will be looking to build on their impressive performance from last season, where they secured a Champions League spot by beating Liverpool, Tottenham, and Chelsea.

Liverpool‘s win against Bournemouth marks their 13th consecutive unbeaten game since their heavy defeat against Manchester City in April. They will be considering starting new signing Wataru Endo in midfield for this match. Endo made his debut in the previous game, coming on as a substitute to preserve their lead.

Liverpool faced some difficulties in the first 25 minutes of their last match, but they were able to come from behind and secure the victory. Dominik Szoboszlai had an outstanding game, contributing to the team’s success by earning a penalty and running the midfield effectively.

Jurgen Klopp is wary of the strength of Newcastle and acknowledges their development under Eddie Howe. Howe, on the other hand, is eager to get revenge for his team’s defeats to Liverpool last season.

In terms of team news, Liverpool are likely to line up with Alisson in goal, Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, and Robertson in defense, Mac Allister, Endo, and Szoboszlai in midfield, and Salah, Jota, and Diaz in attack. Newcastle will have Joelinton back from injury and Javier Manquillo has returned to training, but Emil Krafth and Joe Willock will be unavailable.

The match will be officiated by John Brooks, with Lee Betts and Akil Howson as assistants and Craig Pawson as the fourth official. Stuart Attwell and Constantine Hatzidakis will be in charge of VAR and assistant VAR, respectively.

Overall, Liverpool will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten run and secure another victory against Newcastle. Both teams will be looking to put on a strong performance and gain crucial points early in the season.
