Liverpool: LFC vs. Newcastle Team News
The line-ups are in ahead of the Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Newcastle United at Anfield this afternoon...
The 2013-14 Premier League season draws to a close this afternoon with Liverpool expected to finish second but still dreaming of a first league championship in 24 years.
To achieve such a feat the Reds need to beat opponents Newcastle United and hope West Ham United produce a shock win at leaders Manchester City.
Kop boss Brendan Rodgers has made two changes from the side which threw away a three-goal lead when drawing with Crystal Palace last week.
Jordan Henderson returns from suspension and replaces Lucas Leiva, while vice-captain Daniel Agger is preferred to Mamadou Sakho at centre-back.
For the visitors, French internationals Hatem Ben Arfa and Loic Remy are both overlooked as veteran forward Shola Ameobi starts.
