Where to watch Liverpool vs Newcastle live stream, TV channel, lineups, prediction for Premier League game

Liverpool get the Premier League schedule underway on January 1 with a home clash against Newcastle United at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side secured an incredible unbeaten home record throughout 2023 as they signed off their calendar year with a 1-1 draw against title rivals Arsenal.

Klopp’s charges look primed to challenge Arsenal and Manchester City in the title race in 2024 alongside still being in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and the Europa League Round of 16.

Newcastle’s form took a worrying dip at the end of 2023, as they bowed out of Europe at the Champions League group stages and lost four of their final five Premier League games in December.

The reverse fixture at St. James’ Park ended in a 2-1 win for 10-man Liverpool thanks to Darwin Nunez’s second-half heroics.

The Sporting News looks at the key details ahead of this game, including how to watch it across the world, kickoff times and the latest lineup news.
