Intensity the key for Newcastle at Liverpool, says Rafa Benitez

Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the side that beat West Ham United last week as Liverpool prepare to host Newcastle United at Anfield.

Liverpool will be hoping to take all three points in their latest meeting with the Magpies, as victory will lift them back above arch-rivals Manchester United and into second spot in the Premier League table.

Firmino has been in brilliant form along with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, with Liverpool FC having earned plenty of praise for their fine attacking displays so far this season.

But despite their thrilling brand of football, Benitez, who guided the club to a second-placed Premier League finish in 2009, insists the current generation need to land silverware if they are to be considered alongside their illustrious predecessors. Subs: Mignolet, Milner, Gomez, Moreno, Lallana, Solanke, Matip. Subs: Joselu 6, Hayden 6, Prez n/a. It's understandable thinking given Newcastle are painfully short on goals: Dwight Gayle is the team's top scorer in the league with just five.

MO SALAH was on target again as Liverpool moved into second place. The forward coolly fires home after a superb, probing run from Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Son Heung-Min followed up a midweek brace with another on Saturday as Tottenham Hotspur defeated Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Wembley Stadium, extending their unbeaten run to 17 games in all competitions.

New Zealand striker Wood came on as a second-half substitute to bag his first goal since November with just 10 minutes remaining at Turf Moor. The referee looks at his assistant, but gets no help and decides against giving anything.

The defeat means Everton still only have one league win away from home this season. Robbie Fowler (1994-95) and Daniel Sturridge (2013-14) have also achieved the feat.

Mohamed Salah is the only Liverpool player to have played nearly every big game, and Klopp seems determined to continue his rotation policy.

Despite the weather conditions all Premier League games (as at 12 noon Saturday) are going ahead, although there are numerous ones called off in the lower divisions.
