Newcastle will face a challenging game against Liverpool at St. James’ Park on Saturday. Liverpool could have gained momentum after winning their first league game of the year against Everton.
This is a significant match for Newcastle as they look to get back to winning ways after their only defeat of the season against Liverpool.
Although Newcastle has had difficulties winning their games recently, they have remained unbeaten in their previous 17 league fixtures.
They have struggled to put teams away but have managed to pick up points. A victory against Liverpool would be the ideal result for Newcastle.
Joe Willock, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Miguel Almiron were injured during the match against Bournemouth. Joe is the only one who is doubtful for this weekend’s match against Liverpool.
However, Saint-Maximin and Almiron are expected to be fit to play. Almiron has been a significant player for Newcastle, having started every league game and leading the club with ten goals.
Willock’s hamstring injury is not severe, but he is likely to miss this weekend’s game against Liverpool.
However, he should be fit to play in the Carabao Cup in two weeks. This is good news for Newcastle as they have only lost one game this season, and Willock has been a crucial player for them.
