Liverpool vs Newcastle United teams: Alexander-Arnold returns for Reds, with Rondon on Magpies bench

Trent Alexander-Arnold is back in the Liverpool starting line up for Newcastle’s visit to Anfield.

Salomon Rondon is on the bench for the Magpies, with manager Rafa Benitez deciding to rotate in what is a congested fixture list.

A minor muscular problem has ruled James Milner out, though manager Jurgen Klopp says it is not serious.

Gini Wijnaldum has returned to the Reds’ midfield, while Xherdan Shaqiri will be keen to impress.

For Newcastle, it’s Muto’s first start in six weeks and, according to the Chronicle, Benitez is likely to be five at the back with Federico Fernandez replacing Fabian Schar as one of the three centre-backs.
