After the international break a trip to the North East awaits Rafa Benitez’s men, looking to close the gap on Premier League leaders Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Reds will be boosted by the return of Daniel Agger, who has been sidelined through injury over the last two months.

All being well, Fernando Torres should also make a return to the starting line-up after coming off the bench to score in the 2-0 victory over Fulham at Anfield.

Rafa Benitez has declared Xabi Alonso unfit, but Yossi Benayoun may recover in time, while Harry Kewell is pushing for a starting place.

More team news to follow. The match is live on Sky Sports One, kick off 12:45pm.
