Newcastle vs Liverpool Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings, with Liverpool winning the reverse fixture 3-1.
  • Newcastle have scored in 11 of their last 12 home games.
  • Both teams to score has been a winning bet in Liverpool’s last three away.
  • The Reds are unbeaten in 14 Premier League games, winning 12.

Liverpool continue title quest at St James’ Park

Liverpool have a quick turnaround as they head to Newcastle for the early Premier League kick off on Saturday, after beating Villarreal 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Reds need to refocus on their domestic commitments as they chase an unprecedented quadruple but they will need to be on top form to beat a Magpies side who have won their last six at home.

There hasn’t been any real sign of any pressure getting to Liverpool yet and they may well be able to secure all three points at St James’ Park. However, there isn’t a great deal of value in backing the visitors at a short price and both teams to score has caught my eye here.

Expect goals on Tyneside

These two teams have played out some classic matches over the years and both teams to score has been a winning bet in five of the last six meetings.

Newcastle, who are playing without pressure as they sit comfortably in ninth place, have only failed to score in one of their last 12 home games and they drew that blank against a Manchester City side who have the best defensive record in the league.

Liverpool go into the game seeking a fourth straight clean sheet but all of those have come at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded in each of their last three away from home and both teams to score has been a winning bet in four of their last seven overall.

Hard to see Liverpool slipping up

I’m expecting Newcastle to give the visitors a real test but Liverpool should still have enough quality to claim all three points. The visitors are unbeaten in their last 14 in the league and have won 12 of those, so a 2-1 win for the Reds appeals in the correct score market.

Liverpool have scored exactly twice in each of their last three trips in the league, while Newcastle have enough about them not to get blown away as they have only conceded more than twice in one of their last 17 games.

As an outside bet, an anytime effort from Newcastle’s in-form playmaker Bruno Guimaraes looks a good option. The Brazilian has three goals and one assist in his last three appearances and was on target in the win at Norwich last time out.

Newcastle predicted lineup: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett, Shelvey, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wood, Saint-Maximin

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Keita, Salah, Mane, Diaz
