Liverpool vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
The Reds have made probably the best start they could dream of, in pursuit of their holy grail, the Premier League title.
After the completion of four match-days, the team has registered four wins and has already scored an impressive 12 goals. And this is bettered only by arch-rivals, Manchester City.
Once again the league crown is about to be subjected to a ping pong game between these two, and there really is no scope for even the minutest of mistakes. Last time around Jurgen Klopp’s men had accrued 97 points.
This would have been enough for the title for all of the previous seasons, barring the last two where City got their hands on the trophy.
As such, every single point will count, and to be frank, as dramatic it may sound – Liverpool’s best course seems to target 34 wins from the next 34 match-days. Such is the level of competition offered by the bald freak from the dugouts of the City contingent.
For sure Newcastle is about to face their hardest task in the season, considering that the venue is Anfield.
So far, the Magpies have registered a single win on the table, and ironically though, it was against Tottenham, and on the road as well.
The moral is – the reigning European champions should not be too sure of the three points.
Liverpool vs Newcastle United Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Reds won the last three clashes.
- Newcastle conceded a total of nine goals from the previous three encounters.
- In the last 20 years, the guests have not been able to record a single win at Anfield.
- 18 of the prior 20 battles at this venue saw the hosts scoring two or more goals.
Liverpool vs Newcastle United Prediction
Anfield could be touted as the biggest home advantage a team could be given at present in the world of this sport. Spanish champions Barcelona will provide sufficient testament to this statement.
As of now, the 2018-19 Premier League runners-up were unbeaten in 21 of their previous 22 home ties. And the sole loss had come against Napoli, and that too in a friendly.
Moreover, the Magpies have been unable to register a single win in the last 21 years at this dreaded venue.
And in fact, the former 20 such clashes ended in four draws, and an unbelievable 16 wins for the hosts. In addition, they had also scored twice or more in 18 of these meetings.
Going on, this season, Jordan Henderson and his boys are sporting a 100% win-record, whereas their counterparts have recorded a single win. Count on the home team making it five wins out of five, and making the title-race more interesting.
As has been the case for the past couple of years, the on-fire frontline will get to their job early on. And a goal-riot is probably in the making.
Taking into account Newcastle’s win over the Spurs, Virgil Van Dijk and his backline will have to put in a focused shift though.
