Reasons for Newcastle United vs Liverpool Tip
Newcastle is welcoming Liverpool in the last game of Sunday’s program. The Magpies will try to use the current instability of Liverpool, and record one huge victory for them. After three good games, they lost the last one against Brighton Hove Albion. Meanwhile, Liverpool is struggling, and they are struggling big time. Even the most loyal fans are acknowledging that their team has a pretty bad defense. Once again, they were disappointed, because the Reds brought back only one point from Moscow.
Newcastle United Preview
After three excellent games in which the Magpies had a little bit of luck, they lost. Brighton Hove Albion was better with a minimal result at his Amex Stadium. As always, the rock-solid defense is the biggest strength of this team, but a very bad attack is a major weakness. Both teams not to score happened on 5 of the last 7 games Newcastle participated. In the same matches under 2.5 goals were seen on 4 occasions. We are going to see the reaction of Newcastle’s players when they meet the ultra-offensive game of Liverpool. If they resist until the end of the first halftime, they are going to have good chances of providing a good result. Aleksandar Mitrovic needs to miss this game to finish his suspension, while Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara are going to skip it because of injury.
We are always saying that Liverpool has one of the best attacks in England. The amount of missed chances in the last couple of weeks is forcing us to re-think about our claim. Against Spartak Moscow, we have seen some incredible misses. In the last 6 games Liverpool has only one victory, and in each of them, they allowed at least one goal. Following an excellent start, this period exposed many weaknesses, and the primary one is defense. Liverpool has 11 conceded goals after 6 match League, which is a lot for a title contender. Philippe Coutinho’s comeback in the starting line-up significantly improved the overall game of the Reds, but they need to do more. Sadio Mane is suspended, and Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are still injured.

Newcastle United vs Liverpool Prediction and Betting Tips
In our opinion, Liverpool has more chances to win here. With Philippe Coutinho back in action, it seems that they are more fluent in the upper part of the field. The individual quality of their players will make a difference, and this is why we backup the guests to pick up three points here.
Our second choice would be Liverpool to score over 1.5 goals. We are aware that Newcastle has a tough defense, but it is impossible for Jurgen Klopp’s attackers to continue with this unbelievable cold-streak.
