Liverpool will be desperate to reclaim top spot with a win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park this evening. 

Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to the side that lost 3-0 to Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Dejan Lovren comes in to replace Joel Matip alongside Virgil van Dijk in the middle of defence while Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces Joe Gomez at right-back. Andrew Robertson retains his place on the left.

Jordan Henderson is given a recall in place of Naby Keita in midfield after the Guinean international was ruled out for two months with a groin injury that he picked up in midweek. Fabinho keeps his place while Georginio Wijnaldum drops back into a more familiar midfield role following his surprising spell up front against Barca.

Roberto Firmino isn’t named in the Liverpool squad due to his on-going groin problem so Daniel Sturridge starts up front with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in support. Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are among the substitutes for the visitors.

As for Newcastle, Ayoze Perez is passed fit to start in attack while Jonjo Shelvey returns to the bench following injury.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Newcastle

Dubravka, Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Hayden, Ki, Ritchie, Perez, Rondon, Astu.

Subs: Darlow, Fernandez, Barreca, Kenedy, Diame, Shelvey, Muto.

Liverpool

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Sturridge

Subs: Mignolet, Matip, Gomez, Milner, Shaqiri, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Origi
