iverpool know they cannot afford to drop any further points in the race for the top four as they welcome an improving Newcastle side to Anfield.
A late equaliser from Leeds sees the Reds sit seventh ahead of the weekend action, but just two points off Chelsea in fourth.
Newcastle are growing with confidence after beating West Ham, albeit fortunately, and if Allan Saint-Maximin is fit have enough to leave Merseyside with something.

Liverpool hope to welcome Curtis Jones back to the squad after missing the Leeds game, otherwise it’s a case of as you were for Liverpool.
Newcastle are sweating over the fitness of Allan Saint-Maximin, easily their best player in recent weeks. There is growing confidence he will be involved.
Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle
Liverpool have turned a corner of late but a slip-up against Leeds means they cannot afford any further dropped points in their pursuit of a top-four finish.
They face a Newcastle side finally looking up, rather than down, following back-to-back wins. Another win will make survival all but confirmed, but I think the soon-to-be-dethroned champions will have enough.
