The Liverpool team to start against Newcastle today has been named, it is:
Mignolet, Cissokho, Sakho, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Gerrard, Henderson, Moses, Sturridge, Suarez

The team selection was hampered with the withdrawal of Lucas after his wife gave birth in the early hours of the day and Jose Enrique misses out due to injury.

It is great to have Glen Johnson back in the side and hopefully he will flourish in the right back position which Henderson has been playing in.

Henderson will now partner Gerrard in the middle of the park in the absence of Lucas; a combination which we saw against Crystal Palace.

Cissokho makes his first Premier League start for Liverpool at left back in the absence of Enrique. Two new full backs for the Reds in the 3-5-2 system, I hope they adjust to it quickly.

The subs bench includes: Jones, Agger, Kelly, Flanagan, Alberto, Sterling and Allen

As for Newcastle, they start with: Tim Krul; Mathieu Debuchy, Mike Williamson, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Davide Santon; Yohan Cabaye, Cheick Tiote, Moussa Sissoko; Yoan Gouffran, Hatem Ben Arfa, Loic Remy
