Liverpool vs Newcastle Prediction
The Reds is at the 2nd spot with 37 points from 16 games. They lost only on one occasions while drawing on 4 and winning on 11 fixtures. They have the highest scoring numbers in the league with 45 while conceding only 12.
Liverpool has given the opposition a few, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past 6 matches stands at 2. They are a force to reckon with in the Premier League with 5 back to back wins and by far the only team to not lose at home. They won by 1-0 to Aston Villa in the previous fixture.
The Magpies are at the 19th spot, in the relegation zone with only 10 points from 16 matches. They have only won once in the league while drawing 7 times and losing on 8 other fixtures. They have the highest conceding numbers in the league with 34 while scoring only a sheer 17 goals.
Newcastle United have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in total. They managed to win their first match in the league against Burnley after which the previous fixture saw Leicester demolishing them by 4-0.
Newcastle are a tough side when Howe gets them going but in reality, they will totally fall apart at Anfield. The Reds are imperious at home and have never lost a home league game when Virgil van Dijk has played for them.
We anticipate a win for home team, as they are unbeaten in the previous 12 home games and had not lost to this rival after 2015 taking into account of their past 9 h2h fixtures.
