Premier League Preview: How Liverpool Will Line Up Against Newcastle United
Jon Super/Associated Press

Liverpool go into their final game of the Premier League season needing a win against Newcastle United if they are to have any shot at winning the title, and the Reds will need West Ham United to accomplish a daunting task: Going to the Etihad Stadium and beating Manchester City.

After a thrilling win over City a few weeks ago made Liverpool fans dream about a first league title in 24 years, recent results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace have seriously derailed what had been a scintillating 11-game win streak.

A draw on Sunday would effectively guarantee a second-placed finish for the Anfield club, and while they will be ruing the chance to clinch the title, Brendan Rodgers’ men will rest assured that their progress this season has been admirable and encouraging for the future.

By contrast, Newcastle look to be in a shambles as a supporters’ group staged a walkout at St. James’ Park last week during their win over relegated Cardiff City. Having endured an uninspiring season, Alan Pardew has been the subject to public calls for his sacking, and he will take solace from the fact that the reverse fixture in October ended in a 2-2 draw.

Here is our Liverpool lineup for Sunday’s final day clash against Newcastle, in Rodgers’ tried and trusted 4-3-3 formation. Let us know your picks in the comments below.
