The two teams find themselves in very different situations heading into their latest clash. Newcastle are stuck in the Premier League’s relegation zone and are at risk of being cut adrift before the January transfer window, and the chance to use their newly arrived funds to bolster their squad arrives. Liverpool, though, are firmly set on wrestling back the title from Manchester City and are well on course to do so.

Recent form highlights the contrasting positions of the two sides. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions. Newcastle, meanwhile, have only won one of theirs — a 1-0 victory over Burnley at St. James’ Park. Callum Wilson carries much of the goalscoring burden.

Newcastle fans in search of some pre-match hope should also avoid looking at the head-to-head results. While the teams battled out two draws last season, the Magpies have not won against the Reds since December 2015. Worse still, they have not won at Anfield since a League Cup tie in 1995 and have not won there in the league since April 1994. And, well, we know about those 4-3 games in the following years.

Furthermore, Mo Salah goes into Wednesday night’s game in seemingly unstoppable form. Diego Jota is available again following a knock, as is Roberto Firminio, who has missed the last eight games through injury. Manager Jurgen Klopp said that young midfielder Curtis Jones had also completed a “partial” session with the team and that “getting two players back of this calibre is obviously good news.” Divock Origi will miss out, though, with a knee injury.

Newcastle have midfielder Federico Fernandez out with a thigh injury, and defender Paul Dummett is also unavailable. Sean Longstaff is though set to return to the matchday squad. The midfielder was left out against Leicester. New manager Eddie Howe has also backed Jamaal Lascelles to remain as Newcastle captain, saying the under-fire defender “has my full support in that role.”

Whatever the stats and form say, the Liverpool vs Newcastle live stream usually brings with it huge emotion, passion, and drama. We will show you how to watch it below. And don't forget to check out our full how to watch Premier League 21/22 hub for information on all 380 games this season.
