Liverpool team news: Predicted XI vs Newcastle with two changes after Bournemouth thumping

2 mins read

Attack – Diaz, Firmino, Salah

Heading into the clash with Bournemouth, all eyes were on Klopp’s attack. With Darwin Nunez still suspended following his rash red card against Crystal Palace, it remained to be seen whether the Reds boss would persist with a struggling Roberto Firmino or deploy Carvalho in an advanced role.

Klopp stuck with the Brazilian and he was subsequently rewarded for his faith. Firmino hit a double and led the charge alongside Luis Diaz, who also grabbed a brace himself. With Nunez set to serve the final match of his ban on Wednesday, Klopp’s forward line will likely remain unchanged, with Mohamed Salah the third member of the attack.

The Egyptian looked out-of-sorts on Saturday, squandering a number of glorious opportunities from close range and remarkably failing to register any of Liverpool’s nine goals. With Diogo Jota still sidelined through injury, last season’s joint Premier League Golden Boot winner is unlikely to see his place come under threat. The 30-year-old will be desperate to redeem himself in front of an adoring Anfield crowd on Wednesday night.

Predicted Liverpool XI in full: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Henderson, Carvalho; Salah, Firmino, Diaz.
