In terms of yellow cards, Mario Lemina has been shown two in just four matches, averaging 1.3 fouls per match, a statistic that could rise against an energetic Liverpool midfield, while Nelson Semedo also has the same number of bookings in as many games with an average of 2.5 fouls per game.
Newcastle United takes on Brentford in Saturday’s late kick-off, with the Magpies looking to improve on a start that has seen them pick up just three points from four matches.
