The line-ups are in ahead of the Premier League fixture between Newcastle United and Liverpool at Anfield…

Liverpool are at St James’ Park this lunchtime for an intriguing league clash with fellow Capital One Cup quarter-finalists Newcastle United.

As expected, both sides make a number of changes to the teams that secured places in the last eight in midweek.

Simon Mignolet, Martin Skrtel, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling are amongst the numerous players Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has restored to his starting line-up.

Opposite number Alan Pardew selects fit-again top scorer Papiss Cisse with support coming from Sammy Ameobi.
