Liverpool travel to St. James park mid-week as they look to maintain points gap to stay at the top of the Premier League table and Alley Sport is here with Liverpool Predicted lineup vs Newcastle United.
Liverpool come into this fixture after playing a draw at home vs West Bromwich Albion in which they failed to keep a 100% home record and also failed to defeat Sam Allardyce, West Brom’s new manager, for the fourth time at home. Liverpool took the lead inside the first twelve minutes when Rhys Williams’ long ball was controlled and tucked home by Sadio Mane.
After that West Brom switched into all out defensive mode with sometimes playing in a 2-7-1 formation and parked the bus in order to contain the Reds. West Brom got the break through in the eighty-second minute when Semi Ajayi leaped up and connected to a cross delivered from the right flank and headed home which meant Big Sam would still be undefeated at Anfield.
Liverpool have 3 wins and 2 draws in last 5 games and look on the other hand Newcastle United were beaten by Pep Guardiola Manchester City in a game in which Pep’s team dominated possession and Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus scored to give city the 3 points.

Liverpool Predicted lineup vs Newcastle: Team News
injury woes returned on Sunday as defender Joel Matip was forced off during the 1-1 draw with West Brom. The Cameroon international seems certain to miss the clash with Newcastle on Wednesday, meaning either Nat Phillips or Rhys Williams will partner Fabinho at centre-back at St. James’ Park.
“Joel told me he felt something in his adductor, that’s obviously not too good,” Jurgen Klopp said. “Not sure how serious it is now but it was serious enough that he had to leave the pitch.”
Klopp also confirmed that Naby Keita – only just back from injury – has suffered another muscle problem, but his midfield options could be boosted by the returns of Thiago Alcantara and James Milner, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continues to build towards full match sharpness, having made a substitute appearance against West Brom. Here is our Liverpool predicted lineup vs Newcastle United:
