Predicted Newcastle United Line up v Liverpool
Newcastle United v Liverpool
Saturday 19 October 12.45pm
Liverpool could go top at the end of this match whist the prize for Newcastle would be much needed confidence and a great three, or decent one, point(s).
The result could massively depend on how they respond to the pressure and whether Santon and Debuchy can show defensive attributes that at times go missing.
While Remy, Sissoko and Cabaye pick themselves for most fans, I can see Tiote as also a certain name today.
I think we are then left with Ben Arfa, Cisse and Gouffran fighting out the other two spots, though I never put it past Alan Pardew dropping a bombshell like a surprise recall for Anita.
Gouffran would appear the safest option but I fancy Pardew to gamble on Ben Arfa and Cisse getting back into the kind of form that did for Liverpool two seasons ago.
Liverpool have made a surprisingly good start and now Suarez is back then his partnership with Sturridge looks formidable.
Newcastle though need to win the midfield battle to give them the platform to win today, I believe they can do that and hopefully give Sturridge and Gerrard a hangover after their World Cup qualification days ago.
