Newcastle United hoping for three in a row

Newcastle will attempt to record a third consecutive home victory over Liverpool on Saturday as they seek vital survival points. 

The last time the Magpies achieved this feat was back in 1950 and it would be a great time to do it again, as they lie just two places above the relegation zone.

The Geordie faithful have been handed something to cheer about prior to kick-off, with news of Luis Suarez's ten match ban, which will start with immediate effect. 

Massadio Haidara, who weeks ago was on the receiving end of an unpunished horror tackle by Wigan winger Callum McManaman, is in line to start the game against the Reds and has expressed his happiness that he won't be facing the Uruguayan striker. 

“He is definitely the difference for Liverpool. Without him, they will be a different team,” Haidara told the Chronicle.

“He is the focal point for their attack. They have other quality players but if he is not playing, that will definitely be a positive for us.”

The former Nancy defender also spoke out about his return to first team action and that the return from injury coupled with the Suarez announcement has him fired up before the weekend. 

“Every player who comes here wants to play in this type of game. It is a massive match. Games with Liverpool, Chelsea or Man United are the games which whetted the appetite of the French players before they came here."

Despite injuries to Tim Krul and Davide Santon, the home side could be boosted by the return of Frenchman Sylvain Marveaux as well as central midfielder Cheick Tiote.
