Liverpool return to action in their remaining Premier League fixtures, starting with an inevitably charged lunchtime clash against Newcastle at Anfield.


The Reds have come under intense pressure over the last week, after ownership group FSG announced their plans to join the controversial Super League. They have since withdrawn from the proposals due to overwhelming fan pressure.

Jurgen Klopp was at the centre of the storm following the Reds' game against Leeds on Monday night, despite his opposition to the idea of a breakaway league. He will now be focussed on galvanising his squad and fighting on in the top flight.

Newcastle have all but guaranteed survival in the Premier League following back-to-back wins in recent weeks, including a big 3-2 victory over West Ham.

Steve Bruce will be determined for his side to keep their foot on the pedal as the season rounds the final bends, but will be aware of the threat Liverpool pose in this one. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Liverpool v Newcastle on TV and online.

Of course, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson all remain out, while Curtis Jones and Nathaniel Phillips are doubts.

Newcastle: Allan Saint-Maximin has been inspirational in recent games for Newcastle, but he could miss out with an ankle problem.

Callum Wilson could be set for his first start since recovering from injury, though Fabian Schar, Isaac Hayden, Ryan Fraser and Jamaal Lascelles are all out.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Newcastle

Against all odds, Liverpool still have a shot at making a success of their 2020/21 season.

The Reds have put together a run of four games without defeat in the Premier League, including three wins on the spin, and they will fancy their chances of sticking another three points on the board here.

Klopp's men have failed to win by particularly large margins in recent weeks, so they won't have it all their own way, especially if Wilson does return for the visitors.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Newcastle (17/2 at bet365)
