Liverpool‘s latest homegrown defensive stars

While Steve Bruce’s side face another tough test, having suffered defeat on Boxing Day to Manchester City, thanks to goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres. And while the Reds can stretch their lead to five points, Newcastle can secure a 10-point cushion between themselves and the relegation zone heading into 2021.

The Reds have won the last five meetings between the sides, including the 3-1 win last time out at St James’ Park, with goals from Virgil van Dijk, Divock Origi and Sadio Mane in response to Dwight Gayle’s early opener. Mohamed Salah will hope to stretch his lead in the race to win the Golden Boot, with his 13 strikes two clear of Jamie Vardy, Son Heung-min and Dominic Calvert-Lewin currently.
