Liverpool vs Newcastle United Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
England Premier League | Anfield | 14th September 2019 14:30
Liverpool are tipped to have too much quality for Newcastle in their English Premier League fixture at Anfield. The Reds are the only team with a 100% record in the EPL and have scored six goals in their last two matches. They should secure a comfortable win on Saturday and are backed in the handicap market.
Liverpool were rampant in their previous Premier League fixture as they claimed a 3-0 victory at Burnley. They took a first half lead through Chris Wood’s unfortunate own goal before efforts from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino sealed the win for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s men remain the only team with a 100% record this season and have won their last 13 Premier League matches stretching back to last term. They are priced at 1.14 for a win on Saturday but having scored 12 goals already this season, a handicap bet should offer more value. A -1 handicap bet is pegged at 1.40 while a -2 handicap offers good value at 2.00.
Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Watford last time out in the Premier League. They fell behind early in the contest but struck back four minutes before the break through defender Fabian Schar.
The Magpies have struggled at the start of the season with just one win in their opening four matches. Steve Bruce’s men are not favoured to get a result at Anfield with a win priced at 15.00 while a draw is valued at odds of 8.00
Mohamed Salah will be the one to watch for Liverpool having made a fine start to season. The Egyptian forward has scored in his last three matches against Newcastle and will be confident of once again getting on the score sheet on Saturday.
Newcastle have struggled in attack with Joelington still attempting to adapt to life in the Premier League. Miguel Almiron has also found things difficult lately and both men aren’t expected to get any joy against a solid Liverpool defence.
