Liverpool is a city and metropolitan borough in Merseyside, England. The population in 2019 was approximately 498,042. Liverpool is the ninth-largest English district by population, and the largest in Merseyside and the surrounding region. It lies within the UK’s sixth-most populous urban area, and its metropolitan area is the fifth-largest in the UK with a population of 2.24 million.Liverpool is on the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary and historically lay within the ancient hundred of West Derby in North West England’s county of Lancashire. It became a borough in 1207 and a city in 1880. In 1889, it became a county borough independent of Lancashire. Its growth as a major port was paralleled by the expansion of the city throughout the Industrial Revolution. Along with general cargo, freight, and raw materials such as coal and cotton, merchants were involved in the slave trade. In the 19th century, Liverpool was a major port of departure for English and Irish emigrants to North America. It was home to both the Cunard and White Star Line, and was the port of registry of the ocean liners RMS Titanic, RMS Lusitania, RMS Queen Mary, and RMS Olympic.
Liverpool is ranked at No. 6 on the list of the most visited UK cities. It is noted for its culture, architecture, and transport links. The city is closely associated with the arts, especially music; the popularity of the Beatles, widely regarded as the most influential music group in history, contributed to the city’s status as a tourist destination. Since then, Liverpool has continued to produce many notable musical acts and record labels—musicians from Liverpool have produced 56 No. 1 hit singles, more than any other city in the world. Liverpool also has a long-standing reputation as the origin of various actors and actresses, artists, athletes, comedians, journalists, novelists, and poets. The city has the second-highest number of art galleries, national museums, listed buildings, and listed parks in the UK; only the capital, London, has more. The Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City includes the Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street. In sports, the city is best known for being the home of Premier League football clubs Liverpool and Everton, with matches between the two being known as the Merseyside derby. The annual Grand National horse race takes place at Aintree Racecourse.
Several areas of the city centre were granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004, and the city’s collection of parks and open spaces has been described as the “most important in the country” by England’s Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. Its status as a port city attracted a diverse population from a wide range of cultures, primarily Ireland, Norway, and Wales. It is also home to the oldest black community in the UK and the oldest Chinese community in Europe. Natives of Liverpool (and occasionally longtime residents) are formally referred to as “Liverpudlians” but are more often called “Scousers”, a reference to the form of stew made popular by sailors in the city, which also became the most common name for the local accent and dialect. The city celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2007 and was named the 2008 European Capital of Culture, which it shared with the Norwegian city of Stavanger.
However, in order for that to happen they need to become only the fourth team this season (after Watford, Manchester City and Arsenal) to inflict a league defeat on the Reds, who have actually won just once across their last five visits to Tyneside.

Newcastle United v Liverpool line-ups:
Players to watch:
Newcastle United: It could potentially be another summer of upheaval at Newcastle United even though under Steve Bruce they are finishing this campaign on a strong note. The ownership status of the club has dominated headlines in recent months, but last summer they hit the jackpot in recruiting Allan Saint-Maximin from Nice. The France U21 international subsequently repaid the faith placed in him by the Magpies. Even though he’s bagged three goals, Saint-Maximin’s tireless running and skill on the ball have proven consistent weapons, and he’ll no doubt be relishing facing Liverpool’s energetic full-backs.
Liverpool: There’s a strong chance Klopp will field a number of fringe players in this contest but with the Reds a win away from registering a club-record 99-point total, expect at least two of their regular front-three starters appearing from kick off. Mohamed Salah, in particular, is a goal shy of reaching 20 league strikes and returning to St James’ Park will bring back painful memories as it was here last season that saw him stretchered off after suffering nasty head injury. He managed to score on that occasion before his withdrawal, and if Salah manages to do so again it will be five consecutive matches he’s scored against the Geordies.
Scoreline prediction: Newcastle United 1-3 Liverpool
