Preview – Football: Liverpool v Newcastle United

Liverpool Newcastle United

For both of these clubs the stakes are high, albeit for different reasons.

Liverpool are third in the table, and while they are four points safe from leaving the Champions League spots, they will be keen on trying to cement their position. Newcastle meanwhile are in 15th, but only two points off the relegation zone.

Also on the box today is a mid-table clash between Burnley and Everton, while in the Championship Wolves take on Reading. Of course, this all depends on the weather.

Liverpool v Newcastle United is on BT Sport 1 at 17.00 (kick-off 17.30).
