Liverpool Vs. Newcastle, 2011 Premier League: Lineups

Steven Gerrard will not be starting for Liverpool against Newcastle United, but their lineup still suggests that we should see a nice little throwback to the days of old. Craig Bellamy and Andy Carroll are starting up top in a classic big man-little man 4-4-2 setup, and Anfield is going to party like it's 2001. Newcastle have handed a start to young Haris Vuckic, who will play behind Demba Ba. Jay Spearing returns for Liverpool after serving a suspension. Here are your lineups.

Liverpool Lineup (4-4-2): Reina; Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique; Henderson, Adam, Spearing, Downing; Carroll, Bellamy

Newcastle Lineup (4-4-1-1): Krul; Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, R.Taylor; Obertan, Tiote, Cabaye, Gutierrez; Vuckic; Ba
