However, that run will likely end on Saturday as it is highly improbable for even a Lascelles-led defense to stop the Liverpool frontline from scoring a goal or two.

Defender Jesus Gamez is also missing, according to multiple sources including The Daily Telegraph, due to a long-term ankle injury which has kept him side-lined since October.

For Newcastle, loan signing Islam Slimani is still not available to make his debut as he is injured for 2 weeks.

Despite leaving a big hole in Liverpool's squad, Klopp's side have been in impressive form, winning four and drawing one of their last five matches - including a thrilling Premier League victory over the previously unbeaten Manchester City.

"We are waiting on the results of the scans". "We don't yet know how serious it is".

'We have eleven 100 per cent players so we should not risk anything, that's pretty much the reason'.

"Gayle's fine and so is Ritchie", said Benitez.

Former Liverpool's and current Newcastle United manager, Rafael Benitez, discussed his plan to stop Liverpool's front three in his team's clash against the Reds in the Premier League.

In 174 matches with Newcastle United thus far, Liverpool have won 82 and lost 50, drawing the other 42 games. It was just a precautionary one.

"They play with quality and pace and that is what makes the difference".

"We can't just convince them with money".

"We need to be really focused, really concentrated on the game and it will be interesting again".

Think we'll sit very deep to take away their counter/pace like last time and vs Leicester.

A 5-0 win in the first game in Portugal virtually assures the Reds of a spot in the quarter-finals and Klopp has adopted a strict policy of rotation after watching his players burn out in his previous two seasons as Liverpool boss. "It's going to be harder to get chance".
