Reason for Newcastle vs Liverpool Predictions
Newcastle lost 2-0 to Manchester City in their last league matchmaking it three matches without a win in the Premier League. This sequence has earned just one point for the Magpies – that too in a 1-1 draw against the relegation-threatened Fulham. With only 17 goals to their name, Newcastle has struggled to get going in the front end of the pitch and have the seventh-worst scoring record of the season so far. At the other end, they have struggled with their defense and have conceded 24 goals, which is the joint-fifth worst such record. However, hope for the home fans stems from their recent home record, which has landed wins against Everton and West Brom in their last four league games with just one loss. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
The Reds are three points clear of nearest challengers Everton with 32 points from 15 matches. On Sunday, Liverpool was held to a 1-1 draw at home to West Brom. It was the third time in five games that they played out a 1-1 stalemate. While it was a disappointing result, Liverpool is now unbeaten in eight games in all competitions. The absence of crucial defenders like Virgil Van Dijk has led to younger, more inexperienced squad members deputizing at the back. These lineup changes may explain why the Reds have failed to keep clean sheets in four of their last five fixtures. Although they have lost their previous five meetings with Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s side has performed poorly on the road in this league campaign; the Reds have failed to win five of their seven away league matches. Sure, this record is not convincing, but it holds more sway than Newcastle’s recent displays, one of which saw them outclassed by Championship side Brentford on their way to a League Cup quarter-final exit. Liverpool has scored in the first half of their last seven fixtures against Newcastle. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Liverpool is the favorite in this match, they managed to beat Newcastle five times in a row, and everything is on their side.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. This clash should be a real treat for all football fans.
