Featured Game | Liverpool vs. Newcastle United
Liverpool: The Reds are going to hope that they didn’t use up all of their goals against the Cherries as Newcastle offer a bit more defensively, but Jurgen Klopp’s side is still without striker Darwin Nunez due to red card suspension. Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring) and Thiago (hamstring) are continuing to deal with their knocks and hoping to return to the pitch soon.
Newcastle: Alexander Isak is in line to start following his big-money move from Real Sociedad. On the injury front, Emil Krafth (knee ligament) and Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring) remain out with long-term situations. Callum Wilson (hamstring), Bruno Guimaraes (hamstring) and Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring) hope to return to full fitness soon.
The Reds find a late goal from Mohamed Salah to take all three points. Pick: Liverpool 2, Newcastle 1
