Confirmed Newcastle team v Liverpool – Almiron, Shelvey, Atsu, Willems all start
The Newcastle team v Liverpool has just been confirmed.
Newcastle kicking off their fifth Premier League match of the season on Saturday afternoon at 3pm.
Steve Bruce hoping to make it three Premier League games unbeaten, with any point(s) today a big bonus.
The NUFC Head Coach actually has an excellent career record against Liverpool.
In 21 previous PL games as a manager/head coach against the scousers, he has only lost six times, winning six and then nine draws.
We knew Gayle, Carroll, Sean Longstaff, Lejeune, ASM, Ritchie and Yedlin were all definitely ruled out by injury and here are the players we are all relying on today.
The confirmed Newcastle team v Liverpool:
Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Willems, Hayden, Shelvey, Almiron, Joelinton
So just the one change, Jonjo Shelvey replacing the injured Sean Longstaff.
Whilst on the bench, Sean Longstaff’s injury has created the opportunity for brother Matty, he makes a Premier League bench for the first time as Shelvey steps up.
Darlow, Manquillo, Clark, Fernandez, Ki, Matty Longstaff, Muto
