The Magpies lost two games when Steve Bruce takes on Brentford against criticism of the limp league cup exit, saying he wanted his team to “shut up a few people” against the Reds

But the league leaders have only lost once this season – a heavy loss to Aston Villa in the fall – and Newcastle have lost twice to them last season, including a last day loss when the visitors dominated

Newcastle starred Allan Saint-Maximin and Captain Jamaal Lascelles as they suffer from the aftermath of COVID Ryan Fraser is also missing but Callum Wilson is returning

The starting gun is fired at 8:00 p.m. – we bring you all the information about setup, team news, live action and reactions after the game

In the middle of the first half, Newcastle had an encouraging start here. Liverpool controlled the game

So much better 22 minutes in, #nufc presses and shows a lot of intent Callum Wilson excellent He and Joelinton seem to be working well together

I really see the benefit of Nufc playing a few feet up the field trying to pass and move the ball while Joelinton, Longstaff, and Wilson bond there, I’m sure to take a lot of encouragement from this opening for good of you best 15-meter spell in a while

Yedlin breaks into the box, but his shot is deflected a long way off. A spirited start for Newcastle

The ball breaks for James Milner to get a shot from 25 yards, but his attempt was saved well by Darlow in the depths

Yes, Liverpool dominate the ball but the Magpies are asking questions of the Premier League champions and Callum Wilson is looking briskly and a handful for Liverpool’s inexperienced defense

The Magpies have not let Liverpool calm down and look a little more positive in the future than we would have expected before the game

#nufc fine outlier Matty Longstaff releases Callum Wilson at break and striker shakes off Nat Phillips before blocking Fabinho Liverpool are the champions but Brighton, Fulham and most recently West Brom have shown you can ask them questions Decent start

Newcastle asks at least a question or two during the final third of the opening period. Decent Start Steve Bruce yelled forward to push up, telling players to look Liverpool in the face not to let them settle into the delivery of set -Gaming is obviously going to be the key tonight

Joelinton tries to release Wilson on the left, but there is too much on the ball

It was a positive start for Newcastle and Callum Wilson scored another goal. Unfortunately his header from Jacob Murphy’s brilliant delivery bounced off the post

Early corner for the magpies when Wilson’s flank almost sneaks into the net, but Alisson knocks them over

I’ve tried to be as honest as possible that we’ve been in the bottom half of the Premier League for the past three or four years

If you are in the lower half of the PL you need to avoid relegation first, not that we have to talk about it so it is my job to keep Newcastle as a Premier League club and move forward as much as possible

I also said we have to try and get anywhere near the top ten. They are the simple facts and the honest truth

Just shows you the Premier League, doesn’t it? West Brom defended very, very well and was badly beaten last night. The only thing you have to do is defend yourself well against them because at the top of the field they are very, very good

Steve Bruce stayed with the majority of the team, who lost 2-0 to Man City – but he reminded Callum Wilson of the starting line-up

That meant Miguel Almiron fell on the bench, but Matty Longstaff kept his place in the first X1 while Sean Longstaff stayed on the bench

The Magpies went with Federico Fernandez in the heart of the defense together with Ciaran Clark, with Fabian Schar forming a three-person central unit

DeAndre Yedlin stays on the big stage despite Trabzonspor’s interest, while Matt Ritchie stays on the team

Dwight Gayle, Andy Carroll offered further attack options on the bench while Jeff Hendrick was back in the reckoning

Nice to see Callum Wilson again, but even better to see Martin Dubravka back in the day’s squad A strong side from Liverpool but young center-back Nat Phillips is the obvious weakness #NUFC should take advantage of

As expected, Wilson returns after shaking off the “bad” knuckle in the only change from the City game Joelinton’s role will be key tonight Looks like #nufc will understandably stick to a back five, so that he could be far out Dubravka is back in the matchday squad for the first time since July
