Newcastle vs Liverpool: Prediction, kick off time, TV, team news, live stream, h2h results - preview today

It’s another big day for Liverpool’s historic quadruple bid as they face one of the toughest fixtures in the Premier League right now - an away day at Newcastle.

The Reds, who have already won the League Cup and reached the FA Cup final, took a big step towards the Champions League final in midweek thanks to a 2-0 victory over Villarreal in their semi-final first leg.

They have the chance to climb above Manchester City - who play Leeds later on Saturday - but face a Newcastle side who have won six home games on the bounce.

Liverpool have been further buoyed, however, by the news thatJurgen Klopp and his coaching staff have signed new contracts to extend their stays at Anfield until 2024.
