Newcastle vs Liverpool
English Premier League, Season 2017/18
Date: Sunday, 1st October 2017
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: St. James Park (Newcastle).
After a brief spell of brilliance, Newcastle got back to losing ways. The three-match winning run that put them on track following back-to-back defeats at the start of the season has now come to an end with the narrow 1-0 away defeat at Brighton. Despite the thin score-line, both teams had plenty of scoring chances, but it was the Seagulls who strike lucky on the day. Their attacks are not to blame either as both teams managed to force some brilliant saves from opposition goal-keeper.
On the other hand, Liverpool bounced back to winning ways last weekend after a couple of lukewarm performances. The team who got humiliated by Manchester City 5-0 were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley in the following week. Now, the team look back to their usual best with the 3-2 win away at Leicester. But the lack of concentration in defense remains a problem for the Reds.
Newcastle vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
Newcastle are unbeaten in their last three home matches versus Liverpool, with wins with clean sheets in the latest two.
Moreover, the Magpies lost just once to Reds in their last six Premier League home matches with a commendable 4 wins in their bag.
Newcastle vs Liverpool: Predictions
Newcastle had troubled Liverpool at the St. James Park in recent seasons. With the Reds struggling to stay firm at the back in road games this term, an open game is on the cards. It will be worth to note that the team managed by Jurgen Klopp conceded in six away matches in all competitions this season.
Yet, I doubt if either team have what it takes to go on and win it at the final whistle. Therefore, goal markets offer the better options for this match with both teams to score as the primary pick.
