The Reds have won the last five meetings between the sides, including the 3-1 win last time out at St James’ Park, with goals from Virgil van Dijk, Divock Origi and Sadio Mane in response to Dwight Gayle’s early opener. Mohamed Salah will hope to stretch his lead in the race to win the Golden Boot, with his 13 strikes two clear of Jamie Vardy, Son Heung-min and Dominic Calvert-Lewin currently.

Some intricate buildup play on the edge of Newcastle’s box ultimately leads to nothing as the offside flag goes up when Wijnaldum is played through.

NEWCASTLE 0-0 LIVERPOOL (81’)

Off the line! Thiago, who’s made a difference since coming on, plays a superb pass to Alexander-Arnold, whose ball across drops to the feet of Mane, with Darlow wrong footed. The Liverpool forward looks certain to convert, but Schar is there to clear on the line.

Good save! Newcastle float the set piece into the box and Clark climbs highest, guiding a header towards the bottom left corner. Alisson stretches and almost nonchalantly parries the ball wide.

Joelinton latches onto a long pass from Almiron and is clattered into by Phillips. That gives Newcastle some welcome respite. The Liverpool defender goes into the book, too.

NEWCASTLE 0-0 LIVERPOOL (76’)

A Liverpool free kick on the right flank is wasted by Alexander-Arnold, whose attempted cross is hit straight against the Newcastle wall. But Mane, moments later, is fouled on the opposite side, just outside the box. Another dangerous position for the visitors…

There’s a brief pause in play as Schar receives some treatment for what appears to be a buttock injury. He’s fine to continue.
