Scoring Liverpool face Benitez exam

However, the Magpies have not tasted league victory on the red half of Merseyside since 1994 and that is a situation he is desperate to address against Jurgen Klopp's high-flyers.

Klopp: "Rafa Benitez is one of the best managers in the world".

Liverpool beat Newcastle United 2-0 at Anfield in the English Premier League on Saturday night in what was a third consecutive league win for the Reds who climb to second in the league. "We need to be really focused and concentrated on this game".

"We know how he works, how he can organise a team and how he can make your life really hard".

We saw that with Huddersfield.

They play with quality and pace and that is what makes the difference in football. They've got Champions League next midweek but after their first leg result, they should not be taking their eyes off Newcastle.

This time they did, however, celebrating Dyche's 250th game as manager by winning 2-1 with goals from Ashley Barnes and substitute Chris Wood. It can give you that free swing in a game you're not expected to win.
