Here is the team Steve Bruce has selected for today’s match at Anfield.

This is the lineup that most Newcastle fans would have expected with just Jonjo Shelvey coming in for Sean Longstaff. It looks like it will be the 5-4-1 that Bruce used at Tottenham with Atsu on the left and Almiron on the right. Jonjo Shelvey is going to need to graft like his life depends on it today. If not, there’s Matty Longstaff on the bench who we know will.
This is the Liverpool side the lads will face in about an hour. Joelinton’s Brazilian compatriot Firmino does not get the start today.

This is one of the most difficult fixtures of the season for Newcastle. We just hope they can put in a performance and any result would be an unexpected bonus. Let’s hope the international break has disrupted Liverpool’s momentum and the lads can nick a result.
Howay The Lads!
