Two of Newcastle United’s five league defeats last season came against Liverpool and they will be out for revenge on Saturday.
Newcastle United did well for long periods against Manchester City last weekend; however still came away with nothing.
Julian Alvarez scored the games only goal, combing with Phil Foden before half-time.
Liverpool recovered from an early goal down to beat Bournemouth 3-1, with Diogo Jota scoring one and assisting another.
Alexis MacAllister was harshly sent off for the hosts, with Mohamed Salah also missing a penalty, although he converted the rebound.
Liverpool recorded a comfortable 2-0 win in the fixture last year, with Nick Pope sent off in the first half.
Liverpool have an excellent recent record against Newcastle, unbeaten in the last 13 league meetings between the two, winning nine.

Joelinton is a major doubt having come off injured in the defeat to Manchester City.
Harvey Barnes has impressed in cameo performances thus far and there is a real chance he’ll come into the XI ahead of Antony Gordon.
MacAllister’s suspension was overturned in the week and he is eligible to play. Wataru Endo should make his first start in midfield.
Trent Alexander Arnold came off injured in the win over Bournemouth, but has trained this week and it’s probable he’ll be okay.
Expected starting XI’s
Newcastle (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Bruno, Tonali, Joelinton; Almiron, Isak, Barnes
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Endo, MacAllister, Szoboszlai; Salah, Jota Diaz
Result: Newcastle United
Newcastle United have a horrible record against Liverpool, naturally we fancy them to get a result here! Liverpool have looked quite open this season, whilst Newcastle have been threatening on the counter attack.
Correct Score: 2-1
A narrow victory for the hosts, can see goals here
Anytime Goalscorer: Alexander Isak
Alexander Isak opened his Newcastle account at Anfield last season and we fancy him to score against the Reds again
