Is Liverpool v Newcastle United on TV and what’s the latest team news with doubts over Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes?
Eddie Howe’s side earned a creditable draw at Molineux on Sunday, but now face a daunting task against Liverpool, fresh on the back of their 9-0 thumping of Bournemouth at the weekend.
Before that game, Jurgen Klopp’s side were winless in their opening three matches after a slow start to the campaign.
Newcastle have a terrible record at Anfield in the Premier League with their only win coming in the first Premier League match between the sides at Anfield back in April 1994.

What’s the latest team news?
Eddie Howe has an injury crisis to deal with at the minute with a few of his key players doubtful for the game with Liverpool.
Jonjo Shelvey and Emil Krafth will certainly miss out whilst Callum Wilson, Bruno Guimaraes and Allan Saint-Maximin all have hamstring injuries which could keep them out of the game with Klopp’s side.
Alexander Isak may be able to feature, but will need to wait on his international clearance coming through in-order to be eligible to play. The Magpies have until 75-minutes before kick-off to receive this in-order for the Sweden international to be able to make his debut.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Darwin Nunez.
