Key events

Jurgen Klopp has told BT Sport that the 9-0 rout against Bournemouth is not why he has named the same starting line-up tonight. “It was more of a performance and it’s early in the season and we have to find a rhythm. Now we have to save it. We had time from Saturday to Wednesday, so there was no rotation. Tomorrow Diogo [Jota] Darwin will also be on training [Nunez] will be free again, so it looks better now. We have to create consistency. You can never guarantee a result, but you can guarantee a certain performance if we go into it and throw everything on the field with a great attitude.”

If it’s not broken, etc., and so on Liverpool named an unchanged team after their 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth. Darwin Nunes is serving the final game of his suspension, while Joel Matip and Curtis Jones return from injury to take places on the bench.

Today, Alexander Isak received a work permit and will make his debut in “Newcastle”. The 22-year-old Swedish striker is one of four changes to Eddie Howe’s side following the 1-1 draw against Wolves. Isak replaces Chris Wood, while Jamal Lascelles, Matt Targett and Ryan Fraser replace Fabian Schar, Sven Botman and a weak Alain Saint-Maximin.


Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Firmino, Diaz.
Substitutes: Milner, Adrian, Jones, Tsimikas, Carvalho, Matip, Baitsetic, Phillips, Davies.

Newcastle United: Pope, Trippier, Lasell, Byrne, Target, Wheelock, Sean Longstaff, Fraser, Elmiron, Isaac, Joelinton.
Subs: Botman, Schar, Ritchie, Lewis, Manquillo, Wood, Murphy, Darlow, Anderson.

Judge: Andre Mariner (West Midlands).
