Liverpool vs Newcastle: Confirmed starting XIs

This week’s edition of Monday Night Football sees Newcastle United take on Liverpool at Anfield – the final act of matchday 32 in the Premier League.

This fixture boasts the most goals of any throughout the Premier League era and recent results between the two sides are split right down the middle; two wins for the Reds, two wins for the Magpies and two draws from their last six encounters.

Liverpool are still licking their wounds from that 4-1 defeat to Arsenal two weekends ago, effectively ending their pursuit of qualification for next year’s Champions League tournament. They still boast better form than the visitors, however, who have claimed just two wins in the 13 games since manager John Carver took the reigns from Alan Pardew in December.

So with that in mind, will tonight’s game be a Liverpool whitewash? Or do the ever-unpredictable Magpies have a few surprises in store for the Merseysiders? Perhaps the official starting Xis, confirmed on Twitter just moments ago, can shed some light on tonight’s likeliest outcome:
