The Magpies proved very impressive last season but lost twice to Jurgen Klopp’s side who were the only team to beat Eddie Howe’s side both home and away.
Still, St James’ Park has been transformed into something of a fortress under Howe and it’s still unclear how successful the Reds’ rebuilding has been.
While there have been promising signs at times, Liverpool still have a lot to prove.
