Is Newcastle vs Liverpool on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Liverpool will hope to bounce back from their disappointment at dropping points at home to West Brom recently when they travel to Newcastle United on Wednesday. The fixture is the last of the calendar year in the Premier League, one which has been so strange in so many ways – and saw the Reds end their long wait for a league title, too.

All the same, if they want to retain their status as champions there’s little margin for error, so it’s understandable that manager Jurgen Klopp was irked at the weekend result and he has already stated that he expects a big response from the players.

The Reds remain clear at the top of the table, but injuries could once again impact them after Joel Matip picked up a strain against the Baggies and Naby Keita missed out entirely.

As for Newcastle, they haven’t won in three and look set for a campaign of mid-table mediocrity, with four of their five wins so far this season coming against teams in the bottom half and the team rarely putting up much of a fight against bigger sides who come to attack.
