A trip to St James’ Park is rarely straightforward, and the presence of Rafa Benitez in the dugout only complicates things for a side desperate for three points over their old manager.
Rafa has stressed in the buildup that the Magpies won’t go easy on Liverpool despite already being safe from relegation, but Klopp is aware it’s win or bust.
As such, despite the endeavours of Wednesday night at the Nou Camp, the manager has retained much of his side from that 3-0 loss in the Champions League.
Alisson remains in goal, looking to surpass Pepe Reina’s record with a 21st clean sheet of his debut season, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson ahead of him in defence.
