A number of Liverpool fans have been calling for Ben Davies for make his Reds debut against Newcastle United this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s men host the Magpies in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime, knowing a win could be significant in the top-four battle.
Victory at Anfield would see Liverpool leapfrog Chelsea and West Ham, taking them fourth in the table, prior to the Blues and the Hammers meeting later in the day.
The Reds’ centre-back crisis continues to not go away, with Nathaniel Phillips still sidelined with a hamstring injury, having missed Monday’s 1-1 draw away to Leeds United.
He joins Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip in the treatment room, meaning Ozan Kabak could partner Fabinho against Newcastle.
There is the option of Klopp giving Davies his debut, however, having arrived from Preston in February, but not yet making a single appearance.

“Surely Ben Davies finally gets a game“
“Give Ben Davies his debut I beg you“
“If Ben Davies doesn’t play against Newcastle now I’ll be 100% convinced he doesn’t exist“
“Gotta play Davies so Fabs can get back in the middle“
