Liverpool 2-0 Newcastle: No problems at Anfield

Jürgen Klopp explains why Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson didn't feature against Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the side that beat West Ham United last week as Liverpool prepare to host Newcastle United at Anfield.

Rafa Benitez will be sure to get a warm reception on his return to Merseyside, he guided the Reds to a sensational Champions League win in 2005. If they happen, we'll bring you all the details-along with some tasty gif or video-based highlights of them-as today's Premier League match between Newcastle United and Liverpool from Anfield progresses.

The 24-year-old defender is playing well for the Magpies at the moment and will be a key figure in the Premier League game against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday evening.

A first defeat in five games, and just a second in nine, leaves Newcastle 16th in the table and two points above the dropzone.

"You know I want to say that this is going to be one of those insane high-scoring games we've got used to in this fixture, but it won't be!"

"It was a hard game, we knew it was going to be beforehand and we felt it during the game", Klopp told BT Sport. I think this is a very good team.

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of the Georginio Wijnaldum, Danny Ings and Ben Woodburn, who are all ill.

Liverpool haven't lost a league game since October.

Striker Dwight Gayle (hamstring) and midfielder Matt Ritchie (illness) are fit, but frontman Islam Slimani (thigh) and full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) are still out. The second half proved more of the same until Sadio Mané doubled the lead in the 55th minute, effectively ending the match. Newcastle get away with one, but it won't affect the result.

Fourth-placed Tottenham's third successive league win lifted them five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea in the race to qualify for next season's Champions League via a top-four finish. Liverpool's second arrived ten minutes in when the visiting system was carved open by some lovely short passing exchanges.

With Tottenham's FA Cup involvement leaving his side facing three weeks without a match following Southampton's visit, Newcastle's manager will fill the gap by taking his squad overseas to play a warm-weather friendly.
