Newcastle vs Liverpool – Premier League : On the match that will close out this Sunday of football in England
On the 6th round of this Premier League, Newcastle will host Liverpool at the St. James Park in Newcastle.
The side managed by Rafael Benitez, Newcastle United, and the visitors Liverpool, managed by Jurgen Klopp will meet on a match that marks the return of one of Liverpool’s best managers from,
at least, the XXI century to Anfield Road (like it or not, it is a fact that Benítez was able to do what not a lot of managers were able to).
In terms of head-to-head record, Liverpool has only won 1 of their last 4 matches against Newcastle and they haven’t won at Goodsion Park for about 4 years and a half.
Dummet and Haidara are absences for the hosts while Good is still doubtful. On the visitors’ side, Bogdan, Clyne and Lallana are absences for the German manager of the “Reds”.
Sadio Mané is the big novelty, since he has returned after his suspension.
As for Newcastle, after a very shaky start to the season, where they lost their first 3 matches in a row (2 of which were in the Premier League),
they have been having an interesting comeback on the last 4 rounds, winning 3 of the 4 matches they played (especially some important ones,
since they’ve defeated direct opponents, despite losing to Brighton on their last match). With that, the team sits in 8th place, with 9 points gained.
Newcastle vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
In my opinion, Liverpool is one of the toughest teams to predict in terms of picking an outcome, considering their frequent inconsistency,
since they aren’t able to get a consistent run of results, which brings them some troubles, namely in the fight for the titles of the competitions they play on.
The team, despite its inconsistency, sits in 6th place in the Premier League considering that, if they win, they climb to the Champions’ League spots.
Playing away from home, Liverpool has practically the worst defence in the Premier League (only Palace concedes more goals), which proves their inconsistency, something that,
adding to the fact that Newcastle is in good form, especially at home (where they’ve scored 5 goals on their last 2 matches) might lead to both teams scoring here.
Still, and due to the defensive weaknesses of Kiopp’s team (and due to the lack of quality of some players and the ideas that the Germans imposes)
I think Newcastle might be able to score more than 1 goal.
