Liverpool will be looking to close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City when they host Newcastle United at Anfield on Thursday at 8pm (UK time).
The Reds are four points behind Man City after their 7-0 win over Leeds United on Tuesday but go into this game in good form and are expected to close the gap back to one. Newcastle, meanwhile, are struggling in the relegation zone and will remain there unless they win by an unrealistic amount.

Liverpool team news
Liverpool once again find themselves fighting at the top of the table and they’ve hit fine form at just the right time. Since losing 3-2 to West Ham United at the start of November, Liverpool have won five straight Premier League matches including victories over Arsenal and Everton. At the weekend, they put former captain Steven Gerrard to the sword in a 1-0 win over Aston Villa and will now be looking to record their 2,000th top-flight victory. However, they must do so without Nathaniel Phillips, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi among other longer-term absentees.
Liverpool predicted XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Jota, Mane.
Newcastle team news
Newcastle are still waiting for things to get rolling under Eddie Howe, who has four points from his opening four games as the Magpies’ manager. A draw with Norwich and victory over Burnley have been sandwiched by defeats to Arsenal and Leicester City, the latter a 4-0 trashing at the weekend that pushed Newcastle further into the relegation zone. Although they are three points behind Watford and safety, Newcastle would need to beat Liverpool by eight goals on Thursday to move out of the bottom three before the weekend. The bad news was compiled by an injury to Federico Fernandez, though he is one of just two players out for Newcastle alongside Paul Dummett.
Newcastle predicted XI: Dubravka; Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Lewis; Almiron, Willock, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin; Wilson, Joelinton.
