Newcastle United are in the middle of an injury crisis ahead of their Premier League visit to leaders Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
As many as seven Newcastle United players will miss the Liverpool game as the Magpies try to improve their wretched record at Anfield.
Newcastle United are yet to win at Liverpool in the Premier League since the Kevin Keegan era in the 90s.
The Magpies have not won away to Liverpool in 25 years (since 1994).
Their last attempt ended in a 4-0 defeat last season.
Seven Newcastle United players namely Florian Lejeune, DeAndre Yedlin, Allan Saint-Maximin, Andy Carroll, Matt Ritchie, Dwight Gayle and Sean Longstaff will all miss the Liverpool game as confirmed by the injury update given by club manager Steve Bruce.
The Manchester United legend believed that his team won’t face a better team than Liverpool this season as he paid tribute to the quality of the Reds’ team.
Liverpool have a formidable recent record in the Premier League including a run of 42 games without defeat at home.
As a matter of fact, the reigning European champions have lost just once from 43 matches.
The Reds are targeting win no. 14 in a row ahead of the Newcastle United game.
