Magpies Seek Redemption after Loss to Manchester City
Liverpool is traveling up north to face a Newcastle side that is eager to prove themselves after their defeat against Manchester City. Julien Alvarez's goal in the 31st minute secured the win for City. However, Newcastle is determined to find their winning form, just like when they thrashed Aston Villa 5-1 on the opening weekend.
Liverpool Looks to Extend Winning Streak
Liverpool, on the other hand, is coming into this match with confidence after their comfortable victory over Bournemouth, despite going a goal down in just three minutes. In their last encounter at St. James' Park, Liverpool emerged victorious, making it a forgettable day for the hosts.
When and where is the match?
The thrilling Premier League clash between Newcastle and Liverpool is set to take place on Sunday, August 27. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30pm BST at St. James' Park, which can hold approximately 52,000 fans. In their previous meeting in February, Liverpool won 2-0, and Newcastle's goalkeeper Nick Pope received a red card.

The match will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. Coverage is expected to begin at 4pm BST on both channels. Fans can also stream the game via NOW TV. Alternatively, you can catch live minute-by-minute updates on SunSport's live blog.
Newcastle will be without Joe Willock, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury. Emil Krafth and Javier Manquillo are also unlikely to feature. Joelinton, who limped off during the City defeat, might be replaced by Elliot Anderson or Sean Longstaff. In Liverpool's camp, Thiago Alcantara is still out due to his long-term hip injury, but Alexis Mac Allister is now eligible to play after Liverpool successfully appealed his red card.
