Newcastle will be at home at St James Park as they take on Liverpool in what should be a great rivalry game. This is a game between two of the bigger clubs in England and as a result there should be a great passion between the two sets of teams.
Newcastle are a side that have been quite impressive lately. This is a team that has played some good football lately and as a result they will be confident they can get some results against Liverpool, especially at home. This team is well built and although there are suggestions that they did not spend enough over the summer, they still have a great manager and that will hopefully help them get over the line this season.
On the other hand, Liverpool have been spending big but unfortunately it seems like they are still not at the level they want the team to be. The defense is still an issue and that was proven over the week with their performance in the UEFA Champions League. This will not be an easy game for the Reds since St James Park is one of the hardest places in England to visit as the atmosphere makes it very difficult for opposing teams. The Magpies may not have the talent to match Liverpool, but I think the crowd will get them a point.
I am going to predict that this game ends as a draw. We are getting a decent price on the draw and as a result this is the best bet that can be made in this game.
