After the disgrace of a fifth surrender in a row to Sunderland, it was a case of how many changes for the Newcastle team v Liverpool.

With even John Carver admitting there was no way he could put out the same eleven players after that feeble derby showing.

There were any number of candidates for the chop but Carver has made 3.

Confirmed starting 11 v Liverpool:

Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Anita, Abeid, Sissoko, Cabella, Obertan, Perez

Anita, Abeid and Obertan come in for Jonas, Ameobi and Gouffran.

On the bench:

Elliot, Sterry, Jonas, Gouffran, Ameobi, Armstrong, Riviere.
