Liverpool XI vs Newcastle: Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for Premier League game today

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made no changes for tonight’s Premier League clash with Newcastle.

The Reds responded to growing concerns over their form with a thumping 9-0 rout of Bournemouth, which saw Roberto Firmino score two and assist three more, and that same lineup starts again.

Jurgen Klopp's men just fell short in their Premier League title push last season and began the new campaign in surprisingly cumbersome form.

Liverpool were held to surprise draws by Fulham and Crystal Palace, before losing to previously out-of-sorts rivals Manchester United at a rocking Old Trafford.

Klopp's side had a point to prove on Saturday, and did just that despite a lengthy injury list.

Joel Matip is on the bench but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ibrahima Konate and Naby Keita are all sidelined, while Darwin Nunez is still suspended.

Curtis Jones is also fit enough for the bench, while Harvey Elliott is fine after being taken off as a precaution at the weekend and starts in midfield once again.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Elliott; Salah, Firmino, Diaz.

Subs: Adrian, Davies, Milner, Jones, Tsimikas, Carvalho, Matip, Bajcetic, Phillips
