Predicted Liverpool XI against Newcastle


Liverpool will face one of their biggest tests ever when they clash with Newcastle today in the Premier League at Anfield as they enter into the Christmas period with a four point lead.

The points and position of both sides shows they are no match but history between both sides gives the hint of an interesting game to watch out for.

Newcastle is being managed by a former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez who also understands the terrain at Anfield.

However, we take a look at the Liverpool team and the possible starting XI manager Jurgen Klopp might go forth to execute the game knowing that he has got an all-important game against North London side Arsenal at the weekend.

This, therefore means that a mixed team could be selected to execute the game so as to ensure the rest of some of the players

Alisson Becker has got no competition in the goal post and he would also be given the mandate to save the Reds when the need arises.

In the defence Nathaniel Clyne, Lovren, Virgil Van Dijk and Robertson are all expected while Georgino Wijnaldum could take the place of Naby Keita who will be out as a result of the knock he sustained in the game against Wolves and could pair with Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri at the middle.

Meanwhile, the attack could have a different look with Roberto Firmino, Lallana and Sturridge.
