How to watch Newcastle United v Liverpool: what TV channel is Newcastle v Liverpool on? Time and team news

Enjoy these times. We're watching two of the best English football teams of all time duke it out at the top of the Premier League, in Europe and in the cups too. And one is likely to create history.

Can Liverpool do the quadruple - and they'll need some help in the league however - or will Manchester City finally conquer Europe and complete an unprecedented league and European Cup double? It'll be compelling whichever way it goes.

After midweek's European battles, attention turns back to domestic competition as crunch time in the league arrives.

And Liverpool face a tricky test on Saturday: heading to Eddie Howe's resurgent Newcastle United in the early kick-off. And who knows, maybe Howe’s Magpies will be in the mix in years to come under the new ownership.

Only Curtis Jones (illness) and Robert Firmino (foot) are expected to be missing.

Previous results and form

Liverpool have won four of the last six meetings between the pair, with two draws in the other two games.

But Newcastle have won their last four games and their last six at their own stadium. The Reds will have to find a way to get past the rejuvenated Magpies if their league challenge is to not be hindered.
