Steve Bruce’s men haven’t had a good start this season winning only one game, drawing one and losing two already. However, their only victory so far was against one of the top sides, Tottenham Hotspur.
Their victory over Spurs might give that slight belief for The Magpies in getting something at Anfield. Although it’s tough, Newcastle will still fight hard and compete for that top four seats.
The Reds’ injury is improving but they will still miss at least Clyne and Alisson both due to injury problems. Naby Keita remain doubtful, but he could yet get into the squad.
Klopp is set to rely on their fantastic trio consisting of Salah, Mane along with Firmino. Without Alisson in goal, Liverpool should once again count on their summer signing goalie, Alisson.
Bruce’s squad have way more injury concerns compared to their upcoming weekend side. Colback, Lejeune, Carroll, Saint-Maximin along with Ritchie all are reportedly injured.
Nevertheless, The Magpies still have players such as Atsu, Joelinton, Almiron who can help them putting out a fight. Dubraka in goal is hoping for a top performance as he must stop dangerou attacks from the home team this upcoming weekend.
Head to Head Records:
In their last five meetings, Liverpool have stunned their opponent with three wins and at two draws.
Their latest matchup was back on May 5th, 2019, which resulted in The Reds slender 3-2 away victory.
The home team are very keen on continuing their winning stream and that cna only happen by beating The Magpies. Liverpool will try to kill things off much earlier, so they can change focus for Champions League next midweek.
Newcastle certainly won’t be giving up easily as they are keen on causing an upset on Saturday. Liverpool are clear favorite to win, but they must remain cautious over their opponent’s quality.
Final Score: 2-0
