This Saturday, Liverpool will need to avert their attention from the Luis Suarez drama and focus on their match against Newcastle United. The Magpies have not had a good season by any stretch of the imagination- they currently sit in 16th place, just six points above the relegation zone. While it is unlikely that they will be relegated, Newcastle fans will be shocked at how this season has transpired considering the amount of talent they have in their squad.

Though they did lose Demba Ba, Newcastle have a squad akin to the one that finished in fifth place last season. Liverpool have a shot at qualifying for the Europa League as they sit just five points behind Everton and the sixth place the Toffees occupy. A win against Alan Pardew’s side would not only improve their chances for Europa League qualification, but it would be a welcome aversion to all of the drama surrounding Luis Suarez’s latest indiscretion.

Here are five players to keep your eye on when Newcastle host the Reds at St. James’ Park this Saturday.
