Rafa’s Window Licking Fart Suckers v Bin Dipping Job Dodging Hommes

Saturday sees Newcastle return to Anfield for the first time since April 2016, when they face Liverpool in a 5.30pm kick-off live on BT Sport.

Weather watch: severe winter weather conditions are forecast to continue all week – we’ll keep an eye on whether or not this game is in any danger, and how transport links are affected as a consequence.

Travel 1 : Due to planned engineering work, there’s no Metro service between Monkseaton and St. James all weekend. Replacement bus number 900 will operate. 

Travel 2: Merseyrail and Northern Rail services are facing disruption due to strike action by the RMT.

NB: Trans-Pennine services aren’t directly affected by that strike, but engineering works around Manchester mean that some trains will begin and end at Leeds and an altered timetable will be in operation.

NUFC: Islam Slimani is still struggling with a thigh issue, while Jonjo Shelvey seems unlikely to face his former club after incurring a knee injury when colliding with Martin Dubravka at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Dwight Gayle came off during the same game with soreness in a hamstring but has been training.

LFC: Former Magpie Gini Wijnaldum is expected to be available after recovering from illness.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have made Anfield something of a fortress, with their PL home record this season second only to leaders Manchester City.

Fourteen games have brought eight wins and six draws, with the Reds not losing on their own ground in the PL since Crystal Palace won 2-1 there in April 2017.

Referee: Graham Scott. Second Toon posting of the season for the Oxfordshire official, who oversaw a 1-1 home draw against Swansea City. Scott also took charge of our Championship victories at Leeds and Cardiff last season.
