Manager Jurgen Klopp makes five changes to the side that thumped Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday, with Sturridge coming in for Divock Origi after the Belgian was stretchered off having scored in the encounter.
There are two changes in the back four, with Nathaniel Clyne failing to make the matchday squad and Mamadou Sakho out of contention during a UEFA investigation into an alleged anti-doping violation. Kolo Toure and youngster Connor Randall are the men to come in.
Liverpool: Mignolet; Randall, Toure, Lovren, Moreno; Stewart, Allen; Milner, Lallana, Firmino; Sturridge
Subs: Ward, Skrtel, Smith, Lucas, Coutinho, Ibe, Ojo
Newcastle United: Darlow; Anita, Mbemba, Lascelles, Dummett; Townsend, Tiote, Colback, Sissoko; Perez; Cisse
Subs: Woodman, Mbabu, Shelvey, Wijnaldum, Aarons, De Jong, Mitrovic
