Mohamed Salah will look to get back into the goals when Liverpool host Newcastle in the Premier League tonight.
Liverpool thrashed Bournemouth 9-0 on Saturday, but while Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harvey Elliott and Fabio Calvalho got on the scoresheet, Salah couldn’t join them.
The result was a boost for Liverpool anyway, as Jurgen Klopp’s side responded to some criticism from the start of the season following draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace and defeat against Manchester United.
Newcastle go into the game ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League table after Allan Saint-Maximin’s late equalizer rescued a point at Wolves to maintain their unbeaten start.

What’s the team news?
Liverpool have received a boost as Joel Matip and Curtis Jones returned to training this week, but Diogo Jota and Thiago remain out while Darwin Nunez serves the final game of his three-match ban.
Newcastle are still waiting for the club record signing to sign Alexander Isak’s work permit. “I hope it does,” Eddie Howe said. “There’s no guarantee sitting here now. It could go down to the wire.” Elsewhere, Newcastle have a number of injury concerns. Bruno Guimaraes (out) and Allan Saint-Maximin (doubt) have both had slight hamstring problems. Callum Wilson is already on the sidelines and has been joined by Emil Krafth who is now out with an ACL injury.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Milner, Elliott; Diaz, Firmino, Salah
Newcastle: Pope; Tripper, Schar, Botman, Burn, Targett; Longstaff, Joelinton, Willock; Almiron, Wood
Newcastle have been left looking short due to absences in attacking areas, although Eddie Howe’s side will put up more resistance than Bournemouth, this should be another home win at Anfield. Liverpool 2-0 Newcastle
