Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez confirmed that Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie will both be available for the weekend.
Gayle was the club's man of the match against Bournemouth last weekend after scoring both Newcastle goals in a 2-2 draw, but left the match early due to tightness in his hamstring. Along with Gayle, Benitez confirmed that the Magpies will also have Matt Ritchie back to face Liverpool, although Jonjo Shelvey will not be available to face his former side after sustaining a knee injury. "Dwight's fine and (Matt) Ritchie's fine. They had little problems but they're OK. Jonjo has a knock with his knee," said Benitez, who will also be without on-loan striker Islam Slimani (thigh). "We're waiting for results of the scans. At the moment we don't know how serious it is." Mar 2 - 2:29 PM
