Anita eyes revenge for Liverpool thrashing

The midfielder was part of the Newcastle side who lost 6-0 to the Reds last season, and with Brendan Rodgers' side set to return to St James' Park he is keen to make amends
Vurnon Anita is hoping to exact revenge when Newcastle United host Liverpool on Saturday.

Alan Pardew's men were thrashed 6-0 when the Reds last visited St James' Park in April, with Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson both scoring twice on that occasion.

Liverpool have started the season in fine form and sit second in the table while Newcastle, on the other hand, have had an inconsistent opening to the campaign, and Anita has insisted the mauling will inspire the squad.

"The last game against Liverpool was obviously not good for us. We are in better shape and a better mood now," the former Ajax midfielder told The Chronicle.

"We have to put what happened to one side but we cannot completely forget what they did to us.

"It is now our turn to do it against them. I think both teams are actually better than last season. It is going to be a good game, a tough game, and one we are looking forward to."
