Jurgen Klopp has heavily rotated his Liverpool side for this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Newcastle after their Champions League exploits in midweek.

The Reds beat Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield on Wednesday night but back in league action in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off, Klopp has decided to shuffle his pack, making five changes to the side that started against the Spaniards.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ibrahima Konate both drop out of the backline as Joe Gomez and Joel Matip come in, while Naby Keita and James Milner replace Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho in midfield.

In attack, Mo Salah - named FWA Footballer of the Year yesterday, is rested as Diogo Jota joins Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz.

Liverpool starting XI: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Keita, Jota, Mane, Diaz.
