The game is scheduled for Sunday, August 27th and will be played at St James’ Park in Newcastle-upon-Tune, England. The kick-off time is 16:30 GMT. Now, let’s look at all the team news and also at our Newcastle vs Liverpool predicted lineups.

Newcastle vs Liverpool predicted lineups and team news

Before we go into more details regarding the Newcastle vs Liverpool possible lineups we’ll give you the latest team news for each team and what that means for their overall strength.

Team news: Newcastle

The Magpies opened the campaign with an impressive 5-1 home win vs Aston Villa. Tonali celebrated his Premier League debut with a goal on that day, while Isak shone brightest with his 2 goals. Newcastle then travelled to the home of champions Man City and despite putting up a good fight they lost 0-1.

Back at home, Newcastle will be desperate to put an end to a 4-game losing streak vs Liverpool. The Magpies will gain confidence from the fact that they have never lost 3 consecutive games vs the Reds at St James’ Park. Coach Eddy Howe will also be eager to rectify his dreadful head-to-head record against Jurgen Klopp (W1 D1 L12).

The ex-Everton winger Gordon won’t need extra motivation for this match and he is expected to start again ahead of the summer signing Barnes.

Joelinton picked up an injury in the last match and despite the manager’s confirmation that he will be involved, the Brazilian might not start. Longstaff is ready to fill in.

Newcastle Predicted Lineups (4-3-3):

Pope – Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn – Tonali, Guimaraes, Longstaff – Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Team news: Liverpool

Liverpool came from behind to beat Bournemouth 3-1 at home last weekend and make it 4 points from 2 games. The Reds currently hold the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League (W8 D5) and they will seek their 5th consecutive league win in this contest.

Diogo Jota remains Liverpool’s talisman and the Reds have never lost a game of football when Jota gets on the score sheet (W28 D5).

Mo Salah is expected to be the latest player to join a Saudi team soon but the Egyptian should play this weekend. Thiago and Jones are finally over their injuries and both could be in the group. If available Thiago usually starts, although recently signed Endo could be given his first start too.

It seems the news in defence is good too. Konate and Alexander-Arnold were slight doubts earlier in the week but both had been given the all clear.

Liverpool Predicted Lineups (4-3-3):

Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson – Mac Allister, Thiago, Szoboszlai – Salah, Jota, Diaz

Will Mo Salah play for Liverpool?

Liverpool’s star forward Mo Salah is heavily linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League. This casts doubts regarding his involvement at the weekend. Still, Salah won’t be making any decisions until next week so we can safely expect him to feature at least one more time for the Reds.
