The Reds are unbeaten in four matches but dropped two valuable points in a 1-1 draw at Leeds United on Monday evening. The result dented their pursuit of a top four finish but Jurgen Klopp's men will not be deterred with favourable fixtures remaining.

At the other end of the spectrum, Newcastle have eased their relegation fears with back-to-back wins. The Magpies defeated West Ham United 3-2 last weekend to move eight points clear of 18th placed Fulham.

"I'm not going to take anything for granted," said Newcastle manager Steve Bruce. "I've always said it's the accumulation of points, and 35, in my opinion, isn't enough, so you won't get me jumping and hollering at the moment.

"We've still got six games to play - can we finish above where we did last year? Can we beat last year's points tally? Can we beat where we were? We'll try our utmost.

"I can't say (we're safe)," he added. "With this club there is always a sting in the tail.

"There is no disputing it has been a difficult last few weeks but we have lost one of our last seven games and are starting to show that bit of consistency."

The reverse fixture at St James's Park earlier this season ended in a 0-0 draw.
