Newcastle United has been struggling big time in the league this season and they were pretty much set for relegation couple of weeks ago but two back to back good results have kind of put some hope in the team and if they can repeat their december performance against Liverpool where they won 2-0 at St James Park they can give themselves a superb chance of survival with only three more games to play for.
Liverpool on the other hand has been sensational under Klopp recently and they have closed the gap between them and top four teams and a good run from now to end of the season might see them seriously challenging for the champions league places. However they do have midweek Europa League game to look forward to which might see Klopp using some of the fringe players this weekend.
Papiss Cisse and Jack Colback boosted Newcastle United’s survival hopes as the strugglers produced a brilliant second-half display to draw 2-2 with Liverpool on Rafael Benitez’s latest return to Anfield.
