Liverpool vs Newcastle LIVE: Premier League team news, line-ups and more with Alexander Isak ahead of debut

Liverpool vs. Bournemouth: Jürgen Klopp welcomes the “perfect afternoon” after the 9-0 win.

Liverpool will be keen to build on their 9-0 win over Bournemouth when they welcome Newcastle United to the Premier League tonight. Jurgen Klopp’s men romped home against the Cherries on Saturday, with Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harvey Elliott and Fabio Calvalho all on the goalscoring list.

The manner of Liverpool’s win calmed some criticism early in the season after the Reds drew with Fulham and Crystal Palace before losing to Manchester United. Mo Salah played an unusually soft game and missed a couple of good chances and will be hungry for goals against Eddie Howe’s side tonight.

Newcastle come into play ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League table after Allan Saint-Maximin’s late equalizer saved a point at Wolves to maintain their unbeaten start. They have taken six points from their first four games – one win, three draws – and have strengthened the squad with newcomers. Chief among them is Magpies record-breaking Alexander Isak, who could make his debut for the club tonight.

Liverpool vs Newcastle latest news

Obviously Isak is the team that’s the main talking point for the Magpies, but he’s among several absences.

Central defenders Botman and Schar are on the bench after a surprise move by Eddie Howe, with Guimaraes, Wilson and Saint-Maximin all suffering huge losses to the starting eleven.

There’s a lot of height in the back, however, as Burn, Targett and now Lascelles are all in there.


Liverpool vs Newcastle latest news

First, let’s take a look at the hosts.

All as expected in the line-up, but the big boost for Klopp will be finally having two seniors available again: Joel Matip joins Curtis Jones on the substitutions, which at least boosts the boss’s options off the bench. For a couple of games it’s been Tsimikas, Milner, Carvalho – himself a teenager – and then a bunch of kids and substitutes.

With Jota, Thiago and Kelleher all expected in training over the coming days, the injury crisis is just beginning to ease.


Liverpool vs Newcastle confirmed lineups

Team news is here! The Reds are unsurprisingly unchanged after a 9-0 win at the weekend.

Eddie Howe throws Isak straight into the eleven, with Targett and Lascelles also with changes in defense.

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Elliott, Henderson, Salah, Firmino, Diaz.

Newcastle XI: Pope, Trippier, Lascelles, Burn, Targett, Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton, Almiron, Fraser, Isak


Liverpool vs Newcastle team news is imminent

Full lineups are on the way.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will have to choose between James Milner and Jordan Henderson in midfield as long as Harvey Elliott doesn’t show any ill effects following his departure at the weekend. Joel Matip is back in training but not too many changes are likely after such a big win.

Newcastle could be without Allan Saint-Maximin while Callum Wilson is out. That could mean another start for Chris Wood unless Isak comes on directly. Bruno Guimaraes is still out in midfield so Sean Longstaff will likely start again. Jacob Murphy or Ryan Fraser are the substitutes when Saint-Maximin cannot play.


Liverpool vs Newcastle latest news

Both clubs have been relatively active in the transfer market, although it’s probably fair to say many viewers were perhaps expecting a further deal or two from both – at least at the new side.

Darwin Nunez was the big signing of the summer for Liverpool but he is sitting out the third of a three-game suspension tonight after a rocky start in life at Anfield. Calvin Ramsey has been injured all season so far. Fabio Carvalho is the other signing and the youngster impressed off the bench, scoring against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Newcastle brought in a new first-choice goalkeeper in Nick Pope who has been outstanding so far, with Matt Targett’s loan from Aston Villa becoming permanent. Sven Botman also joined the defense and now the aforementioned Isak is their big addition to the window for a club record fee.

Liverpool vs Newcastle latest updates

The season so far for these two clubs:

Liverpool Didn’t get off to the best start, drawing against both Fulham and Crystal Palace before suffering defeat at Manchester United. However, they bounced back in style, beating Bournemouth 9-0 at the weekend to equalize the record Premier League win – and resulted in Scott Parker being fired from the cherries.

They are 12th with five points from four games.

newcastle are two places and a point ahead of the Reds, who beat Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the season. Since then the Magpies have had three draws, against Brighton, Man City and most recently Wolves.


Alexander Isak receives a work visa ahead of his Newcastle debut

The Times’ Martin Hardy reported just a few hours ago that Newcastle United signing Alexander Isak has received his visa from the Home Office – meaning he will be in the game tonight.

The deadline was 75 minutes before kick-off, Eddie Howe recently confirmed, so the Sweden striker is expected to be present at Anfield.

We’ll find out at 7 p.m. whether that’s in the starting XI or from the bench.


‘We’ll try everything’: Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s hunt for a midfielder

Jurgen Klopp would prefer Liverpool to “risk a little more” in the transfer market but he ultimately accepts their situation as the search for a midfielder comes to an end.

Liverpool’s spending on Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay this summer could cost them just over £100m but they will recoup around three-quarters of that through spending.

As Klopp looks to strengthen his squad in the middle of the park before Thursday night’s transfer window closes, the Reds manager realizes the decision is out of his hands.

More from the boss on the Reds’ late search for recruits:


Newcastle striker Callum Wilson facing a ‘setback’ with a hamstring injury

Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has expressed frustration with the hamstring injury that has blocked his strong start to the new Premier League campaign.

Wilson hobbled off in the middle of his side’s 3-3 draw with Manchester City earlier this month and is expected to remain on the sidelines for at least two more weeks.

The 30-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live’s The Footballer’s Football Podcast: “I had a bit of a setback – disappointing as I felt like I’d found my form and rhythm.”

Wilson scored on the opening day of his side’s win of the season against Nottingham Forest and again against City before limping off after 70 minutes.

Chris Wood took his place in the line-up against Wolves at the weekend, while Alexander Isak has since been included in the squad after signing from Real Sociedad.

He added: “It’s frustrating because you’re doing everything right – the ultimate pro.

“There probably aren’t many people in the dressing room who are more professional than me – how I eat, how I sleep, how I rest.

“That’s the most frustrating thing – you’re putting your heart and soul into staying there. A little setback – it’s ok – but I had to put it into perspective.”
