Liverpool is welcoming Newcastle United to Anfield in round 33 in the English Premier League.
Liverpool has been playing well lately, and they have lost only 1 of their last 7 games, which is a massive improvement from just 2 months ago when Liverpool couldn’t beat anyone. Thanks to this nice streak, Liverpool is back in the Champions League race in the EPL, and they are now in 7th place with 53 points, 54 scored goals, and 38 conceded goals, and Liverpool is now 2 points away from the Champions League spot. In their last game against Leeds on the road, Liverpool has had only 39% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Liverpool got ahead in the 31st minute, but Leeds has pressured them a lot in the second half, and Liverpool have conceded a goal in the 87th minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. Salah has been one of the most consistent strikers in the EPL over the last few seasons, and he has 19 goals to his name this season. Jota and Mane have each added 8 goals. Van Dijk, Gomez, Matip, Henderson, Kelleher, Origi, Jones, and Philips are all injured for Liverpool. The EPL is the only competition left for Liverpool, and they need to make the most of it because Liverpool could end up without the Champions League next season.
Newcastle is undefeated in their last 3 games, while they lost only 1 of their last 7 games, and with that, Newcastle has most likely secured their EPL spot for next season. Newcastle is in 15th place with 35 points, which is 8 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle is far from a good offensive team this season, and they have scored only 35 goals, while their defense has been bad with 53 conceded goals. Wilson is the leading goalscorer for Newcastle with 10 goals, while Saint-Maximin added 4 assists. Schar, Hayden, Fraser, Lascelles, and Darlow are all injured, while Saint-Maximin is still questionable. Newcastle was playing against West Ham at home in their last game, and they have had 34% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. Even with an extra player on the field since the 36th minute, Newcastle couldn’t get the possession, but they were really effective in this game, and Newcastle has won this match 3-2. As I’ve mentioned earlier, Newcastle was in danger of relegation once again this season, but with 8 points advantage from Fulham, I’m confident we will be seeing Newcastle in the EPL next season as well.
When playing at home, Liverpool has not lost to Newcastle in their last 25 games, and it will stay that way. Liverpool has a lot to lose with a loss in this game, and since the EPL is the only competition left for Liverpool, they can play it without pressure. I’m taking Liverpool.
