Our prediction: Newcastle v Liverpool

Liverpool have endured plenty of injuries of late but should have enough in the tank to overcome Newcastle here.

Granted, Bruce will set his side up to make this a physical encounter, especially at the set piece. So, don’t be surprised if the hosts grab a goal from a free-kick or corner.

But Liverpool have enough quality to outscore Newcastle here. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah each scored twice against the Toon last season and three points should realistically be heading back to Merseyside once again.

Our prediction: Newcastle 1-3 Liverpool
