PHOTOS: All smiles in Liverpool camp as Newcastle United test draws near

Below are the best pictures from Liverpool’s training session on Thursday ahead of the Premier League clash against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

Liverpool have not been entirely convincing in recent weeks, but it seems that the players are remaining positive.

Having been held to a goalless draw by Hull City at Anfield in the Premier league last weekend, the Reds managed to eke out a 2-1 home win against Swansea City in the fourth round of the League Cup on Tuesday.

Heading into this weekend’s round of matches, Brendan Rodgers’s side find themselves seventh in the league table with 14 points from nine matches, two points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

Liverpool will take on Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Saturday, and the players have been training ahead of the clash.
