Liverpool host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. The Reds are chasing down a top-four spot and Champions League qualification after seeing hopes of retaining their league title fade away after a disappointing season.

They finally ended their Anfield hoodoo against Aston Villa a fortnight ago, however, before again dropping points, away at Leeds United, on Monday evening, where Sadio Mane’s goal was cancelled out late by Diego Llorente. It has been a tumultuous week with the launch and subsequent collapse of the now failed European Super League still raw in the minds of supporters. But Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to stay focused on the task at hand and an all-important three points.

Two big wins have eased the relegation fears around Newcastle and the pressure on manager Steve Bruce, with the victory over high-flying West Ham a week ago seeing them move eight points clear of the drop. There remains work to be done, however, with anything away at Anfield a bonus as Bruce looks to secure safety and another year in the top flight.

Despite a fractious week, in which his own relationship with Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group has been tested after being kept in the dark about the proposals, Klopp insists he has not fallen out of love with football.

“Never with the game. Just with the things around. It’s a big one, I felt it the same way, but I cannot constantly talk about it, think about it,” he said in his pre-match press conference. “But I never lost my love for the game. We had so many things going on this year and we always tried to get through.

“I said after the (Leeds) game, if someone asked me ‘What are you missing from this year?’, in terms of what could have happened on top of all the rubbish that happened to you, I would have said ‘The Super League is coming up!’. It was a lot but it had nothing to do with the game. All the things around it? The game stayed the same. It got better and better and better.”

We will have all the latest updates and analysis for you throughout Saturday afternoon here:

Newcastle have the ball in the net, but it won’t count. Clark is picked out with a flick on from a corner and nods home from close range. He’s clearly offside, though.

Chance! Longstaff makes a run in behind the Liverpool defence and Shelvey picks him out. The first touch isn’t great, so the midfielder has to dig a shot out under pressure from Kabak. Alisson makes an important save.

Fernandez has been booked for an earlier challenge on Jota, which required a VAR check. He went in heavily, catching the Portuguese with his arm.

Liverpool deal with a couple of crosses, the first from a free kick and the second a dangerous low cross by Saint-Maximin.

Fabinho spots the run of Salah and lifts a perfectly-weighted ball over the top. The latter’s first touch is immaculate again but Dummett gets a foot in to dispossess him.

Murphy gets to the byline on the right and pulls the ball back into the box. Thiago is on hand to intercept but Liverpool don’t clear properly. Saint-Maximin is slipped through in the box and tries to square for one of a few Newcastle players open in the middle. Before any of them can convert, though, the flag goes up for offside.

Alexander-Arnold sweeps a pass into the path of Mane, who tries to lift a first-time finish over the goalkeeper. He manages that, but sends the ball over the bar. The flag is up for offside anyway.

Concern for Newcastle as Saint-Maximin hobbles over to the touchline having been hurt by that Kabak challenge. He’s back on now, but not moving freely.

Newcastle are sitting far too deep and allowing Liverpool to move the ball around with ease in their half. There seems to be no way out, until the lively Saint-Maximin skips past a few players and draws a foul from Kabak, who goes into the book.

Old rivals Liverpool and Newcastle face off in Saturday’s early kick-off in a key game at both ends of the Premier League table.

Liverpool, who drew with Leeds on Monday night, are struggling to make the top four this season and need to win this weekend.

The Reds have also been embroiled in the European Super League furore this week and will want to start making it up to their despondent fans.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are still not safe from relegation but have won their last two top-flight games.

These two drew 0-0 in the north east in December but have played out some classic matches down the years.

talkSPORT will be at Anfield to bring you all the action from what could be another classic.

This match will get under way at 12:30pm on Saturday, April 24.

Full coverage from Anfield will be exclusively live on talkSPORT, with our pre-match build-up starting at 11am.

Reshmin Chowdhury will be your host and commentary will come from Clive Tyldesley and Trevor Sinclair.
