Friday, April 22 – 1949
To receive Newcastle United at Anfield to-morrow, Liverpool today made a defensive change in their team. Bob Paisley, having recovered from injury, resumes at left half in place of Eddie Spicer, and the attack is the same as that which scored four goals at Huddersfield on Monday.
Team: Cyril Sidlow, Bill Shepherd, Ray Lambert, Laurie Hughes, Bill Jones, Bob Paisley, Jimmy Payne, Kevin Baron, Albert Stubbins, Jack Balmer, Billy Liddell.
