RW - Miguel Almiron: I know, I know. I'm getting to the stage where I'm wishing for Jacob Murphy's return as well. But since Almiron is our only option on the right flank, we should get behind him. He's due a goal, so go out there and get it, Miggy.

CF - Alexander Isak: It was refreshing to see the Sweden international start our last Premier League match. He provided a lot to the team during his start, not just the goal. Let's hope his technical ability will help us carve some chances against Liverpool.

LW - Anthony Gordon: Gordon will need to do a lot of tracking back to deal with Liverpool's main man Salah, which makes him the perfect option at left-wing. He has a good understanding with Kieran Trippier and he has a great work rate. That's without mentioning his fine attacking potential.

Predicted Newcastle lineup vs Liverpool: Dubravka; Livramento, Botman, Schar, Trippier; Miley, Guimaraes, Longstaff; Almiron, Isak, Gordon
