Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to see his Liverpool side return to winning ways on Saturday when they welcome Newcastle to Anfield.

The Reds dropped points in midweek in a tricky away tie to Leeds United but will still hold some hope of finishing in the top four before the Premier League season draws to a close.

Fortunately for Klopp, it seems as though he’ll be able to call on a relatively full-strength squad to pick up all three points against Newcastle.

In defence the Liverpool manager will undoubtedly turn to Alisson to keep his regular spot between the posts, with a back four of Andy Robertson, Ozan Kabak, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

In midfield we should see Klopp stick with the same pragmatic midfield trio of Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner and Thiago Alcantara, even if the trio did struggle to create enough chances against Leeds.

Another boost for Liverpool will likely come in the form of Mohamed Salah returning to the side. As such the Egyptian international will surely take on a starting role, with Klopp also turning to Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane to make up his front three.
