Match Preview

Newcastle slipped to defeat away at Brighton and ended a run of 3 consecutive league victories. That run was important for the fans and the manager and they’ve climbed to 9th in the table with 9 points. A win here could take them as high as 5th and it would be a dream return to the Premier League for Newcastle fans. They are without Dummett, Haidara and Lejeune for this fixture and have lost 2 out of the last 5 games. Newcastle have won 2 out of 3 at home their only defeat coming against Spurs. They were well in that match until the sending off of Shelvey and may be able to get something from this game if they are able to keep their heads. They’ve scored 6 goals in 6 games with isn’t free scoring, but they’ve got a well organised defence having conceded just 5. Mitrovic, Joselu and Gayle need to start scoring with defender Lascelles leading the way on 2 league goals. Liverpool welcome back Mane and that will be a huge boost to them. They’ve managed just a single win in the last 5 league fixtures, the 2-3 away win over Leicester. That should have been a draw with Vardy missing a penalty to level for the Foxes. They have 3 draws and 1 defeat in the last 5 fixtures, not exactly sparkling form. They are 6th in the table with 11 points and a win could take them into 4th above Chelsea. Goals are never going to be a problem for Liverpool having scored 12 already this season. Defending has been an issue with 11 conceded. Away from home they’ve won 1, drawn 1 and lost 1 with games averaging over 5 goals.  Salah, Mane, Firmino and Coutinho are all expected to start here and that will be a huge challenge for this Newcastle defence. Liverpool are the favourites here as they have the firepower to hurt Newcastle. If the Newcastle strikers were in form they would be good value to get something from this game, but they’re not so we have to go with the away side edging this.
