Newcastle welcome Liverpool to St James' Park with the real chance of finishing the day above the Reds in the table. "But that is football, you never know", admitted the 57-year-old.

The task facing the team from Tyneside, though, is a tough one and dabblebet offer 15/4 (4.75) that Newcastle chalk up a third successive home win when they line up against Jurgen Klopp's charges. The left-back Paul Dummett can not help his teammates due to a hamstring injury, while fellow left-back Massadio Haidara is also sidelined with a knee injury.

Newcastle have failed to score in three of their last six Premier League games. One moment, they are tearing teams apart and scoring wonderful goals, the next they are squandering all of their chances and falling to disappointing results.

Rafa Benitez says he doesn't believe there should be any "animosity" towards Georginio Wijnaldum on his return to St James's Park.

The Liverpool number 10 combined with Mane in Russian Federation to score the Premier League club's equaliser against Spartak to take his tally to two goals in two starts in the 2017-18 season.

Newcastle face the reality of being a freshly promoted club, with last Sunday's lacklustre 1-0 loss at Brighton a blip on what had been an otherwise bright start. They have also conceded nine goals more than both Manchester clubs.

Last time these two sides played each other was in the 2015/16 Premier League season. Three years later in April 2016, as Benitez attempted in vain to halt Newcastle's slide to the Championship, the demoralised team he had taken over the previous month came back from two goals down for another 2-2 draw.

Liverpool (4-3-3): Simon Mignolet (GK); Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan, Andrew Robertson; Emre Can, Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho; Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge, Sadio Mane.

Looking ahead to the match, Fowler predicts that nothing will change with the Spaniard's tactics, still aiming for a clean sheet and hitting Liverpool "on the counter".
