Team news and stats before Newcastle vs Liverpool within the Premier League on Wednesday (kick-off 8pm).

Team news

Newcastle are without key duo Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin for the visit of Liverpool within the Premier League with both still feeling the results of Covid-19.

Jonjo Shelvey (groin) and Callum Wilson (ankle) are going to be assessed after neither were risked against Manchester City on Boxing Day and Joelinton (hip) will hope to prove his fitness. the sport is probably going to return timely for Ryan Fraser (groin).

Fabian Schar and Federico Fernandez also will be checked after both returned to the side at the Etihad Stadium despite not having trained much. Jeff Hendrick and Paul Dummett have also been ill.

Liverpool defender Joel Matip and midfielder Naby Keita will miss the trip to St James' Park.

Centre-back Matip injured his groin in Sunday's draw with West Brom, a match Keita missed with another muscle problem, so Rhys Williams looks set to deputise.

Fellow midfielder Thiago Alcantara isn't quite able to make his comeback from a knee injury sustained in October.
