Team news: Wilson starts against Liverpool
Callum Wilson returns to Newcastle United's starting line-up ahead of this evening's Premier League visit of Liverpool (kick-off 8pm).
The Magpies host Jürgen Klopp's champions at St. James' Park aiming to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat at Manchester City on Boxing Day and Wilson, an unused substitute at the Etihad Stadium, has been named in the starting eleven for Newcastle's final game of 2020.
Karl Darlow keeps his place in between the sticks although there is a place on the bench for Martin Dúbravka, who is named in a matchday squad for the first time since July, playing the full 90 minutes of Newcastle's final game of the 2019/20 campaign - a 3-1 home defeat against today's visitors.
Matty Longstaff, who made his first start of the season against Man City, retains his place in central midfield alongside Issac Hayden, with Jacob Murphy and Joelinton likely to feature either side of the pair.
