Thiago named on bench as Liverpool make two changes for Newcastle match


#Nat #Phillips will make only his third #Premier #League appearance as #Liverpool aim to move five points clear at the #Premier #League summit this evening.

#Phillips has been preferred ahead of #Rhys #Williams as partner to #Fabinho at centre-back in the absence of #Joel #Matip for the clash at #Newcastle #United.

The greater intrigue, though, will surround the selection of #Thiago #Alcantara on the bench, the #Spaniard’s first involvement since suffering a knee injury at #Everton on #October 17.

#Jurgen #Klopp has made two changes from the side that drew against #West #Bromwich #Albion on #Sunday.

#Former #Newcastle man #Gini #Wijnaldum is replaced in midfield by #James #Milner, who is making his first outing since suffering a hamstring problem at #Brighton and #Hove #Albion a month ago.

#Alisson #Becker is in goal, with #Trent #Alexander-Arnold and #Andy #Robertson continuing in the full-back roles.

#Skipper #Jordan #Henderson and #Curtis #Jones join #Milner in midfield, while the front three remains unchanged.

#Naby #Keita again misses out with the fitness issue that sidelined him at the weekend.
