Liverpool are set to host Newcastle United at Anfield in the English Premier League.
Newcastle United last played at home in a match that ended 1-1 against Watford. It was a solid performance by the Magpies as they controlled 48% of the possession and had 13 shots. Newcastle United conceded early but managed to equalize in the second half. The star performer for the Magpies was Fabian Schar who scored the goal for the team. It has been a decent start to the season for Newcastle United as they currently have 4 points from their 4 games. Despite that form, this is expected to be a very tough match for Newcastle United as they are playing an elite team away from home.
On the other side of the coin, Liverpool remain with a perfect record having won all of their 4 games. In their previous outing, Liverpool defeated Burnley 3-0 away from home. It was a dominant display by the Reds as they controlled 64% of the possession and 7 shots on target. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino both scored goals for Liverpool. Liverpool look very strong going forward and the defense has been very solid with players like Virgin Van Dijk and Allison playing exceptionally well. Considering their current record, Liverpool look very hard to stop.
Liverpool and Newcastle United played each other twice last season in the Premier League. Both games were won by Liverpool. The match at Anfield ended with Liverpool winning 4-0. Mo Salah scored in both games against Newcastle that were played last season.
Despite the positive start to the season for Newcastle United, I see the Magpies losing this match. Liverpool are a significantly stronger team and the Reds have an offense that should be too strong for Newcastle. I see this match being high scoring with Liverpool winning with some ease. Betting on the over 3.5 goals seems like a good wager as prior head-to-head matches have been very high scoring.
