Premier League leaders Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the new season when they welcome Newcastle United to Anfield in the first game of week five.

The Reds have won their four league games this season and they are on the hunt for a 14th straight league win against the Magpies.

Newcastle United don’t have the best of records at Anfield having not won there since the Kevin Keegan era.

The Magpies have not recorded a league win at Liverpool in 25 years (since 1994) but they can take solace from the fact that they have already beaten one of the top six teams this season.

Newcastle United beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 away from home in week three.

Ahead of the game, manager Steve Bruce is not expected to make any changes from the week four game with Watford at home (1-1).

For Liverpool, manager Jurgen Klopp could be tempted into at least one change from the last time out (3-0 away win over Burnley) with Georginio Wijnaldum making way for James Milner mainly due to his international exertions with the Dutch national team.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; James Milner, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson; Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Martin Dubravka; Emil Krafth, Fabian Schar, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Jetro Williams; Christian Atsu, Issac Hayden, Sean Longstaff, Miguel Almiron; Joelinton.
