We think Newcastle could take advantage of Liverpool’s fragilities and take three points, priced at 5.0 with Bet365. Below you can read the reasons for our Newcastle vs. Liverpool predictions.
We expect Liverpool to Win 2-1 at 17.0 with Bet365
Liverpool are undoubtedly the most unpredictable team in the Premier League. The Reds have an abundance of quality attacking players, but are erratic in front of goal and even more so in defence.
There is every chance they could turn up and win handsomely – they won 6-0 at St. James’ Park in 2013 and 5-1 in 2008 – but just as much a chance of losing to Rafa Benitez’s men.
With odds of under evens, we’re not sure betting on Liverpool is the way to go here given their current form. A Newcastle win at 5.0 with Bet365 looks significantly better value. We’re backing a 2-1 home win at 17.0 with Bet365.
Benitez knows Liverpool well from his six years at the club. He is known for his tactical nous and calculated approach. It’s hard to see him leaving gaps in defence for the Reds to exploit.
However, the Magpies are to win the match they will need to score, and unlike Jurgen Klopp’s side they have real problems in front of goal at the moment.
In 6 league matches they have only found the net six times, with last season’s top goalscorer in the Championship Dwight Gayle yet to get off the mark.
Centre-back and talisman Jamaal Lascelles has come up with two vital goals in wins over Swansea and Stoke though, and he is 29.0 with bet365 to open the scoring on Sunday.
Newcastle host Liverpool at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon. Rafael Benitez will be looking for a win against his former side, who have been in very mixed form as of late.
The Reds looked unstoppable at the start of the season, but have really hit a lull in recent weeks. Whilst exciting in attack, they struggle to take chances and look vulnerable in defence to say the least.
Liverpool Form: DWLDDL
Newcastle have also been in mixed form recently, and after three successive wins, they were beaten 1-0 at Brighton last weekend.
Newcastle Form: LWWWLL
This one of the classic Premier League fixtures. The two teams have shared some memorable moments in years and decades gone by, although Liverpool it is who have the edge with 82 wins from 173 matches.
Sadio Mane will return to play his first domestic match since September 9th. Elsewhere, Nathaniel Clyne remains injured. Adam Lallana is also out, but the England international should return soon from a thigh stream that has kept him out for the whole season so far.
Benitez is sweating on the fitness of defender Florian Lejeune, who may or not be available following an ankle injury. Paul Dummett and Massadio Haïdara are both sidelined.
Home Win: Newcastle United to Win at 5.0 with Bet365
