Harry Kane and Spurs are getting hot at just the right time

Liverpool recall Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson for their Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

Here's how to watch Liverpool vs. Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday evening (5.30pm GMT), live online and on TV around the world.

"The good thing about this group is that they train well and then they put you under pressure to make a decision".

Salah is seeking to score in his seventh consecutive league game.

Sadio Mane scored the other goal - Liverpool's 200th in the league under Klopp - to wrap up three points; Liverpool now hope Crystal Palace can do them a favour when they play Manchester United on Monday. He was a world-class player and we miss him, but we don't see it on the pitch.

And, after two late calls were waved away for Jamaal Lascelles' strong challenges on Salah when a penalty for one and a red card for the second could easily have been given, now Newcastle eyes turn to the Saints at St James' Park next weekend.

Liverpool climb above Manchester United into second and Klopp's men have built a seven-point cushion from fifth-placed Chelsea in the race to secure Champions League qualification, with Antonio Conte's side in action at the Premier League's runaway leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

Putin's nuke boasts are unlikely to change balance of power
Other countries only listen to Russian Federation when it comes out with new weapons, Putin said: "You will listen to us now". At the State Department, spokesman Heather Nauert noted the timing of Putin's speech - weeks ahead of the election.

"I like him as a person, but I actually think we've given enough presents already to him since I have been in".

The Merseyside club, third in the league and on the verge of a Champions League quarter-final berth, have no injury worries as they head towards the closing months of their campaign in formidable form.

Striker Dwight Gayle (hamstring) and midfielder Matt Ritchie (illness) are fit, but frontman Islam Slimani (thigh) and full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) are still out.

He also understands the unique dynamics of Benitez's place with fans of the club, and what will certainly be an emotional return to the grounds with his Magpies squad.

So, who will be picked? Huddersfield can go into the Tottenham game this weekend and if they lose it's no big deal.

The "Egyptian King" found himself one-on-one with Martin Dubravka, and with the Reds hotshot bearing down on goal there was only one outcome as he coolly finished between the keepers' legs to make it 1-0 to the hosts.

They remember the stat of winning a trophy.
