Liverpool host Newcastle at Anfield on Saturday in the Premier League, as the visitors attempt to escape the relegation zone.

Liverpool prepared for this clash with a fantastic 4-0 thumping of city rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night.

Divock Origi, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho all found the net, as the Reds comprehensively beat their neighbours, who were reduced to ten men earlier in the second half by the dismissal of Argentinian defender Ramiro Funes Mori.

The result moved Liverpool up to seventh in the Premier League table and Jurgen Klopp’s side could still have an outside chance of clinching a European spot this season.

Striker Sturridge has now scored four goals in his last five appearances for the Reds in the Premier League and is likely to start this clash, after starting Wednesday’s game on the bench.

Newcastle’s form has improved of late and followed-up a 3-0 victory against Swansea at the weekend with a battling 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Tuesday night.

City took the lead through a header from Sergio Aguero, although replays showed that the striker was offside when he found the net. Full-back Vurnon Anita struck to level the scores though and earn the north east side a creditable point.

The draw moved the Magpies to within two points of safety in the fight to secure their Premier league status.
