Liverpool vs Newcastle lineups, starting 11s, team news for Premier League match: Konate, Diaz set to return

Liverpool kick off 2024 with an eye-catching Anfield Premier League showdown against Newcastle United on January 1.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are right in the mix for a potential title challenge in the second half of the campaign and they are unbeaten at home since November 2022.

However, Liverpool’s positive end to 2023 is contrasted against a miserable December for Eddie Howe, with Newcastle’s Champions League exit compounded by a string of league defeats.

Liverpool vs Newcastle lineups

Klopp does not have any change on the injury front at the start of 2024, but Alexis Mac Allister is closing in on a return, with Andrew Robertson and Thiago Alcantara tipped for a comeback before the end of January.

Howe’s injury absentee list is longer, with eight first-team players out of action including first-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope, while club captain Jamaal Lascelles is a doubt for this game.

Here are the projected starting lineups for the Premier League clash at Anfield on January 1.

Liverpool starting 11

Liverpool lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) — Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Gomez — Szoboszlai, Endo, Gravenberch — Salah, Nunez, Diaz.

Subs: TBC

  • Injured: Matip, Thiago, Robertson, Mac Allister, Bajcetic, Tsimikas.
  • Suspended: None

After securing a 2-0 Boxing Day win at Burnley, Klopp will look to reshuffle, with Luis Diaz in line to start in attack and Ryan Gravenberch back in midfield.

Newcastle starting 11

Newcastle lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Dubravka (GK) — Trippier, Botman, Schar, Burn — Joelinton, Guimaraes, Longstaff — Almiron, Isak, Gordon.

Subs: TBC

  • Injured: Pope, Murphy, Anderson, Barnes, Willock, Manquillo, Targett, Lascelles (doubt)
  • Suspended: Tonali

With Howe still restricted by injuries, he will keep changes to a minimum, but Joelinton is set to start in midfield.
