Liverpool vs Newcastle: What has been said?
Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce: “We are going to the European champions and they are as good a team as you will ever play against, so we’ll have to defend well.
“It’s always been a big fixture and you want to go there and take them on. It’s what we’re in it for. The core of the squad have been together a couple of years and they’re a really honest and genuine group.
“When you’ve got that, you’re capable of doing anything. They’ve gone to Spurs and won and they beat Man City last year, so they’ve got it in them.”
