Jurgen Klopp has backed his faltering forwards to come good as Liverpool aim to rediscover their scoring touch at Newcastle United.

"Sky, if they really want to bring the players, the supporters, the people who work for television into work on this night".

The BT Sport pundit told BetVictor: "I have fond memories of St James' Park and scored a hat-trick for Liverpool in the corresponding fixtures back in 1998". The side are already scheduled to play Swansea City on Boxing Day and Leicester City on 30 December.

And the former Southampton man has weighed in with three goals in four English Premier League games, playing out wide.

"I really think it is no problem for people to be very concentrated on important nights on something other than football".

The five-time European Cup winners, however, stood their ground and while the Spanish giants launched multiple bids, they eventually opted against matching a €200m (£176m) valuation they claimed Liverpool had placed on the player. We are used to it.

Jurgen Klopp ripped the idea of moving a game to Christmas Eve, just to accommodate television, and lamented the same gripe that most of us have with all sports these days- the broadcast partners have way too much power.

"I really can not imagine anybody wants to watch football on this night, but I'm not so important".

The team was really happy when he was back, no discussions about why and what.

Michael Owen has revealed that he is backing Liverpool to beat Newcastle in Sunday's late kick-off.

That's professional football, we're not non-league anymore. Sometimes people think about it, sometimes not.

"Like it is in life and in football, you have to keep on going", said the German.
