Liverpool & Newcastle teams have been announced, its a match that Kenny Dalglish needs to win.
A third league win on the spin for Newcastle will virtually guarantee a top-six finish and a probable European place while Liverpool’s league season is slipping away in alarming fashion with five defeats in six. They’ve won just two Premier League matches in 2012. The cup campaigns have kept the wolves from the door but another defeat here would leave them in a fight to finish top dogs on Merseyside.
Liverpool team: Reina, Flanagan, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Gerrard, Spearing, Shelvey, Bellamy, Carroll, Suarez
Newcastle team: Krul; Simpson, Williamson, Perch, Gutierrez (c); Guthrie, Tiote, Cabaye; Ben Arfa, Cisse, Ba.
