During his Friday press conference Eddie Howe confirmed he will be without 5 first team players for the Premier League match with Liverpool.  The reds will be looking to put pressure back onto Man City by winning the lunchtime game, going back to the top of the table if they come away from St James Park with all 3 points.

Earlier in the season a trip to Newcastle was seen as an easy 3 points, but with a resurgent Newcastle now clear of the relegation battle and winning games regularly, Saturdays game will prove to be much tougher for the Reds than might have been expected.  Added to this is the fact that Liverpool only played again Villareal in the Champions League Semi-Final on Wednesday evening, meaning the Reds have only had 48 hours to recover.

Jurgen Klopp and his squad will therefore be glad of any advantage they can get, and hearing that Newcastle will be missing 5 key players through injury could just help tip the game in our favour.  The five missing players are: Kieran Trippier, Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Jamal Lewis and Isaac Hayden.

The match will be played at St James Park and kicks off at 12.30 on Saturday 30th April 2022.  Liverpool fans can watch the action live on BT Sport 1HD.
