Mohamed Salah is aiming to become the first Liverpool player in Premier League history to score 20 goals in a season for the third time.

Having amassed tallies of 32 and 22 in 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively, the Egyptian needs one more strike to reach the milestone in the league this term, too.

Former Reds forwards Robbie Fowler and Luis Suarez achieved the feat twice.

Liverpool's next goal at Anfield in the Premier League will be their 250th under the management of Jürgen Klopp. 

The Reds have scored in 24 consecutive home matches against Newcastle – a Premier League record. 

Sadio Mane has scored three times in his last three outings against the Magpies.

At Anfield, only once in the last 57 league and cup meetings has there been a goalless draw – back in February 1970.

Liverpool have won more home games against Newcastle (20) than against any other team in the Premier League era, and have taken 64 points from the last possible 75.

The Reds have also scored more goals (104) against the Magpies in the Premier League than against any other team.

Michael Owen netted the last Liverpool hat-trick past Newcastle, doing so in a 3-0 Anfield win back in May 2001.

James Milner bagged 11 goals in 136 appearances during his spell with the visitors, while Georginio Wijnaldum achieved the same total across 40 games for them in 2015-16.

Fabinho's first strike for the Reds came in this fixture in December 2018.
