It's the Reds against Rafael Benitez at St James' Park in a fixture that never fails to entertain.
Rafael Benitez isn't the only former Liverpool man in the Newcastle ranks these days.
Jonjo Shelvey - who made 69 appearances for the Reds and scored seven goals between 2010 and 2013 - will be hoping to line up against his ex-club this afternoon.
Javier Manquillo, who spent the 2014-15 on loan at Anfield, is also in the Toon squad.Line-up:Training:The ground:Team comparison:
