Liverpool will welcome Newcastle United at Anfield this Wednesday night as both teams look to go all out for the win in the Premier League. The Reds managed to hammer Bournemouth by a 9-0 scoreline last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this clash. In contrast, the Magpies were held to a 1-1 draw away at Wolverhampton Wanderers recently.
Liverpool Vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics
Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to dominate possession of the ball and create enough clear-cut chances to win this clash.
Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe will opt for a 3-4-3 formation and might instruct his men to defend their penalty area well and try to hurt Liverpool on the counter.
Curtis Jones and Joel Matip are both major doubts for this game. However, the Reds will definitely be without Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Ibrahima Konate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for this clash at home.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Firmino, Diaz
Bruno Guimaraes and Allan Saint-Maximin are unlikely to recover in time for this game. Furthermore, Callum Wilson, Jonjo Shelvey and Emil Krafth will be sidelined for this contest as well.
Newcastle United Predicted XI
Pope, Schar, Botman, Burn, Murphy, Longstaff, Joelinton, Targett, Almiron, Wood, Fraser
Mohamed Salah failed to register a goal or an assist in the 9-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend. Hence, we can expect the Egypt international to be dangerous in this midweek clash at Anfield.
Luis Diaz and Harvey Elliott will have to find a way to get in behind the opponent’s backline at every chance they get following their impressive displays versus the Cherries last weekend.
Chris Wood has to figure out a way to pose a threat during indirect set-pieces in the injury absence of Callum Wilson. Newcastle’s back three of Fabian Schar, Sven Botman and Dan Burn would need to be at the top of their game if the Magpies are to secure a good result on their travels in midweek.
