Liverpool will be out to make it six Premier League wins in a row when they welcome Newcastle United to Anfield on Thursday night.
LIVERPOOL RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Liverpool secured back-to-back 1-0 victories in the premier league victories with a narrow win over Aston Villa. The Reds were being thwarted severally by a strong Villa defense but In-form Mohamed Salah confidently dispatched a penalty in the 67th minute after being fouled by Tyrone Mings. Jurgen Klopp has now recorded seven consecutive wins in all competitions with their last five games at Anfield coming with clean sheets. With Chelsea and Manchester City both also prevailing by one-goal margins at the weekend, there is little change in the title conversation, with the Reds still second in the rankings – one point behind leaders City and one clear of Chelsea after 16 games. Liverpool has recorded more Premier League wins (20) against Newcastle than any other side in the top division. In-form Mo Salah has scored or assisted in 14 consecutive premier league games. Nat Phillips, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott are ruled out with injuries. Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino returned to training and could make the bench here.
NEWCASTLE RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Since the ownership takeover, Newcastle has struggled to find consistency in the premier league and with just one win this season, New manager Eddie Howe has an uphill task in keeping the Toons in the premier league. Their last premier league outing was a disappointing 4-0 defeat to Leicester at the King Power stadium. Patson Daka, Youri Tielemans, and James Maddison all scored to condemn Newcastle to a fifth defeat from eight on the road in the Premier League. With only three points taken from a possible 24 on the road this term, Newcastle’s away form is the worst in the 2021-22 Premier League, and they have only managed to find the back of the net five times on rival turf all season. Defender Paul Dummett is Howe’s only absentee with his calf problem.
