Match preview

Alan Pardew has vowed to send his resurgent Newcastle United side out to attack Liverpool in Saturday's Barclays Premier League match at St James' Park.

Newcastle have put a poor start to the season behind them by winning their last three matches in all competitions. Their latest success came at the expense of Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City in a 2-0 Capital One Cup defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

Despite Pardew naming a much-changed side, including Rob Elliot, Rolando Aarons, Adam Armstrong and Ryan Taylor, who was making his first start since August 2012, Manchester City were stunned as goals from Aarons and Moussa Sissoko dumped the holders out.

Pardew is plotting a fourth win in a row this weekend.

"We have protected ourselves a little bit for Liverpool [by making changes against City]; we can now attack that," he said. "We have real confidence and belief and that's very important in football."

Newcastle have moved up to 14th in the table after a home victory over Leicester City was followed up with a 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. Pardew is backing his players to cause Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side problems.

"I've had some good games against Liverpool since I've been manager here and we've more than held our own," he said. "I'm pretty confident I know what Liverpool will do, I'm pretty confident I know what Brendan's side is.

"I know him well enough to know how he'll come and play but, for us, we can surprise them because one thing's for sure, Brendan won't know my team. I'm pretty confident of what it's going to be and it'll be an entertaining game. He'll have [Raheem] Sterling on the pitch, he'll have [Adam] Lallana on the pitch, he'll have [Mario] Balotelli, [Jordan] Henderson, [Steven] Gerrard, [Philippe] Coutinho all on the pitch. So Brendan is pretty happy with that."

Pardew will be without midfielder Cheick Tiote (calf), while striker Papiss Cisse (knee) is rated by Pardew as "touch and go".

Rodgers believes Newcastle are starting to reap the rewards of keeping faith with Pardew and the Liverpool manager knows his side will be facing a team brimming with confidence on Saturday.

"It is great credit to the people at Newcastle," he said. "I know Alan is a top-class manager. We know there are boards who change manager but Alan is very experienced, outstanding manager and he has got results.

"Where they are at now, on the back of three wins, they have a bit of momentum."

Rodgers will be hoping Balotelli breaks his Barclays Premier League goal duck after coming off the bench to inspire a dramatic Capital One Cup fightback against Swansea City on Tuesday. The striker scored his second goal for the club four minutes from time and Dejan Lovren headed the winner deep in stoppage time to secure a 2-1 win.

Liverpool will be without Daniel Sturridge (calf), Jose Enrique (knee), Mamadou Sakho (thigh), Jon Flanagan (knee) and Suso (groin).
