Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Luis Suarez' ten-match ban could "infuse" Liverpool.
The Merseyside club travel to St James' Park in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Watch Alan Pardew's full press conference ahead of Newcastle United's trip to West Brom on Saturday:
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has condemned the violence which flared in the city in the wake of Sunday's derby defeat by Sunderland.
Mounted police were called in to deal with a series of incidents in the city centre after the game, which the Magpies lost to their arch-rivals 3-0.
The club later issued a statement in which it said it was "embarrassed and appalled" at the behaviour of those allegedly involved and threatened to ban anyone convicted of causing trouble from St James' Park for life.
Today, Pardew criticised those responsible and pointed to the example set by those supporters who followed the club on their Europa League adventure.
"We have conducted ourselves in such a great manner all year in Europe and everything, and there was such a great feeling around.
"But there was a feeling after the game and perhaps the kick-off time and alcohol involved, and we had those ugly incidents which we don't want to see.
"It's a shame for our genuine fans that they have to carry the burden of that scare from that game."
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is hopeful of having central defender Steven Taylor fit for Sunday's derby clash with Sunderland.
Taylor missed Thursday night's 1-1 Europa League draw with Benfica with a knee problem but could return for the Tyne-Wear showdown, while midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa has shown no ill-effects from his second-half cameo against the Portuguese side.
Pardew was playing his cards close to his chest over injuries with Mathieu Debuchy and Cheick Tiote working their way back from hamstring problems, but while striker Yoan Gouffran will be back in the squad, defenders Davide Santon and Fabricio Coloccini are expected to miss out once again.
Newcastle United have been given a boost ahead of tomorrow's Europa League clash against Benfica.
Hatem Ben Arfa and Massadio Haidara both trained with the first team today and could be fit for the club's quarter-final second leg at St James' Park.
However, Alan Pardew confirmed that Steven Taylor is a doubt after picking up a knock in training.
The Magpies trail the Portuguese side 3-1 after last week's first leg in Lisbon.
Newcastle United Manager Alan Pardew believes that his team have set the scene for a night of European glory.
The Magpies came from one goal down to beat Stoke City at St James Park this weekend.
The result eased their relegation worries in the premier league and gave Newcastle a welcome boost ahead of Thursday Night's Europa League showdown with Russian team Anzhi Makhachkala.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has been speaking about the Blues interim manager Rafa Benitez's rant at the Riverside last night.
Newcastle United could welcome back a host of players for Saturday's Premier League trip to Norwich.
The Magpies have been missing some key personel in recent weeks and were forced to field a weakened team during last weekend's FA Cup exit at the hands of Brighton. However, some of those absentees could return for the visit to Carrow Road.
Captain Fabricio Coloccini is expected to back among the starting line-up, as is striker Papiss Cisse after both missed the 2-0 defeat at the Amex.
Full-back Mathieu Debuchy could be handed his club debut after completing his move from Lille, while his France international team-mate Yohan Cabaye could be named among the substitutes after recovering from a groin injury.
Speaking ahead of the match, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew said: "Steven Taylor I think will be ready for Reading. Cabaye will certainly be ready for Reading.
"Jonas [Gutierrez] is fit, and he'll be available for Norwich. So we're looking like we're getting some senior bodies back in and around the team at a crucial time.
"We really need to get ourselves some momentum. So I think for our fans, who we really let down last week, that we give a really good account of ourselves at Norwich and start getting points on the board."
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says the club's current injury crisis is hampering his team's performances this season.
The Magpies - who have ten first-team players missing - are 15th in the Premier League table after losing their last three league games in a row. The club were also knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Brighton Saturday.
Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at the Amex stadium, Pardew said: "We just need to get our best players back, and quickly because of the Premier League. We need to sustain ourselves in that and make sure we're a Premier League team next year.
"Regardless of how big a club we are, we're in danger and we need to get our best players on the pitch.
"I'm afraid that team, if I'm honest, is a shadow of the team we can put out. So we need to work hard and try and get our bodies back."
