Newcastle will face a daunting trip to Anfield on Saturday afternoon in the late kickoff game, and it doesn’t help that Liverpool don’t seem to have many injuries; in fact, they have a clean bill of health for Saturday’s game.
The Liverpool Echo is reporting today that Liverpool have no injuries and so for the first time this season Jurgen Klopp will have his full squad to choose from.
Former Newcastle player Gini Wijnaldum, Danny Ings, and Ben Woodburn were not available for last week’s game when they took West Ham apart 4-1, but they are available for Saturday.

And even Nathan Clyne has played for the Liverpool U23s after finally recovering from the back surgery he had earlier this season.
We have Jonjo Shelvey as a major doubt with his knee injury picked up last time out at Bournemouth.
And Dwight Gayle who is coming into good goalscoring form was taken off with tight hamstrings against Bournemouth in the second half.
Dwight has a history of hamstring problems and is slightly doubtful for the Liverpool game.
It looks like it’s a home banker for Liverpool on Saturday, but we want to see our players fight for every ball from the first whistle to the last.
Football is a funny game, and if we can get something out of this game, it will make up for throwing a valuable 2 points away last time out in the game at Dean Court.
But it’s going to be extremely tough.
