With such a small squad and long-term injuries to Steven Taylor and Marveaux, the good news for Alan Pardew is that it looks like he will have a couple more option to play with against the scousers.

Gosling returns after his daft suspension, hopefully having learnt a valuable lesson, while Davide Santon is reportedly available again having recovered from his niggling knee injury.

While Gosling will be an extra decent option from the bench, I would like to see Santon starting as he looks potentially to be an excellent player. Quick and looks decent in defence, while very comfortable on the ball, a massive help when you are playing the better teams such as Liverpool.

It might be tough on Ryan Taylor who always gives his best but I don’t think Newcastle United are in a position to leave out quality players.

Who is it for you, Santon or Raylor?
