Liverpool have won 12 of their last 13 league games and have not tasted defeat against Newcastle since December 2015, a game that came just two months into Klopp’s tenure as Reds boss.

However, this time around, Eddie Howe’s side will be full of optimism heading into this contest having won four games in a row and their last six on the spin at St James’s Park.

Victory at Carrow Road last weekend moved them into ninth place and although there aren’t any relegation fears on Tyneside, they could be mathematically safe from the drop with a win on Saturday and results elsewhere go in their favour.
