Newcastle United host Liverpool on the final day of the 2019/20 Premier League season. Neither of these teams have anything to play for anymore, and therefore we expect a very exciting and free-flowing game.
Liverpool finally received their Premier League trophy on Wednesday and they put on an incredible performance against Chelsea, defeating the blues 5-3 at Anfield. Liverpool have been quite lackluster in their recent performances, but they put the critics to bed against Chelsea, giving it their all and winning the match in Liverpool fashion. Liverpool now are looking towards their holidays and beginning the next season on the right foot. It will be interesting to see how much effort they put into this match as it is away from home and they have nothing to play for. Will Liverpool play their best team, or will they give some youngsters the chance to play?
Newcastle United are coming off a bore draw at Brighton, with the match ending with a 0-0 scoreline. I would have expected more from these teams as they have nothing to play for and can play more freely. Both these teams have not had the best of seasons, but they are better than that scoreline. It was an incredibly tight match, but one which perhaps Brighton has the better chance to win. Brighton had 62% possession and had 3 shots on target, whilst Newcastle only had 1 shot on target. It will be interesting to see if Newcastle really go for it against a Liverpool side which is capable of slipping up right now.
The reverse fixture between these two sides ended in a 3-1 Liverpool victory at Anfield. Newcastle opened the scoring in the 7th minute, but Liverpool quickly came back and took the victory. I expect this match to be very similar as Liverpool, even if they play a lot of youngsters, will want to end this season with a victory. Newcastle might also see the opportunity to take something out of this match and therefore both teams will score. However, Liverpool's youngster team is still much better than Newcastle's main team. Give me Liverpool and over 3.5 goals at +187.
