Liverpool host Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday as the two clubs meet for the 46th time in the Premier League - and there have been some classic clashes down the years.

We all remember that 4-3 thriller at Anfield in 1996, when Stan Collymore struck an injury-time winner and defeated Magpies boss Kevin Keegan slumped over the hoardings, but what about more recent fixtures?

Here's how the Reds have fared in their last 10 matches against Newcastle...

1. A moment of misfortune

Philippe Coutinho scored Liverpool's 295th Premier league goal from outside the box (that was 33 more than any other side in the top flight at the time) to take the lead on Tyneside but a slice of luck helped former Anfield boss Rafael Benitez maintain his unbeaten record against the Reds.

Despite dominating possession (68 per cent) and shots on goal (17), Jürgen Klopp's side were pegged back by Rafa's Magpies when Joel Matip's recovery tackle on Joselu knocked the ball against the striker's shins and rebounded into the corner of the net.

2. Quick-fire Reds slowly reeled in

It took just 76 seconds for Daniel Sturridge to score his seventh goal in seven Premier League starts against Newcastle and when Adam Lallana doubled the lead before half-time it looked like the Reds would cruise to victory ahead of a midweek Europa League semi-final first leg against Villarreal.

However, Benitez's relegation strugglers fought back, survived a penalty scare and a Roberto Firmino offside goal and claimed their first away point of 2016.

3. A Red in the making

Klopp's Liverpool had won seven of their last eight games heading into this scrappy match against Steve McClaren's Newcastle at St James' Park.

However, future Red Georginio Wijnaldum delivered a match-winning performance for the Magpies. The Dutch midfielder forced Martin Skrtel into an own goal and then produced a stabbed finish over an onrushing Simon Mignolet to secure victory.

4. Sterling work keeps Liverpool looking up

Brendan Rodgers' revived Liverpool kept alive their hopes of a top-four finish with this victory over a Newcastle side that were under the stewardship of caretaker-manager John Carver.

Reds winger Raheem Sterling scored his 12th goal of the season, while Joe Allen netted his first of the campaign to become the 18th different player to score for Liverpool that season - equalling the club record.

5. Waiting to strike goals

With last season's top scorer Luis Suarez departed, Daniel Sturridge out injured and new signing Mario Balotelli struggling to find his shooting boots, Rodgers' misfiring Reds failed to score for a second straight league game in this November clash at St James' Park.

"It's not working for us at the moment," the LFC boss admitted after the match. "We have lost goals. We scored 101 goals last year in a team that had been working towards that. Take away nearly 80 per cent of that and it can become difficult for you."

6. Record-breaking Reds

This was the final game of a rollercoaster 2013-14 season for the Reds and victory confirmed Rodgers' side as runners-up to eventual champions Manchester City.

Daniel Agger's opening goal was Liverpool's 100th of the campaign and Sturridge's strike nudged the team's tally up to 101 - a club record in a single season in the top flight.

7. Centurions lead fightback

Liverpool twice came from behind against 10-man Newcastle, with Steven Gerrard scoring his 100th goal in the Premier League and Suarez twice denied late on in his 100th game for the Reds.

Eight games into the Premier League season and the Suarez and Sturridge strike partnership that would help fire the Reds to within two points of the title was really starting to blossom, with the former setting up the latter for the equaliser and winning the penalty for Gerrard to convert.

8. Magpies hit for six

Liverpool secured a first win in four matches in emphatic style as Sturridge and Jordan Henderson scored two each to hand Newcastle their heaviest home defeat for 87 years.

It was the perfect response from Rodgers' men after top-scorer Suarez began a 10-match ban.

9. Suarez stars at Anfield

This was Gerrard's 600th game for Liverpool but it was Suarez who stole the headlines. The Uruguayan striker was a constant irritant to the Magpies and was chopped down by a frustrated Fabricio Coloccini late on via a red-card challenge.

The LFC No.7 had scored a brilliant equaliser earlier in the half after controlling a long pass from Jose Enrique on his shoulder and rounding goalkeeper Tim Krul. Rodgers' side registered twice as many shots as Newcastle, but the points were shared.

10. Keeping up appearances

Kenny Dalglish's League Cup winners went into this one having been inconsistent in the Premier League, while Alan Pardew's Francophile Newcastle still had hopes of a top-four finish.

It was the Toon who triumphed on a day when Liverpool 'keeper Pepe Reina was sent off and full-back Enrique ended up in goal against his former club.
