The match is over. Score: 2-3. Newcastle 19/2 | Draw 9/2 | Liverpool 2/7 Bet Now With Royal Panda Predictions | Betting Tips | Odds | Statistics Rafa Benitez welcomes his former club to St James’ Park as Liverpool look to get the three points that will keep the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table. Predictions Newcastle assured their Premier League status a few games back now and have looked fairly impressive in the latter part of the season. Time will tell if Benitez receives funds to buy new players for his squad but there are the makings of a good side at Newcastle and both Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez will want to impress their manager against Liverpool. Liverpool need to keep on winning to stand a chance of winning the league and will expect three points from the trip to Newcastle, while knowing that this will be a difficult fixture. The attacking talent of Jürgen Klopp’s side is the real danger for Newcastle – and any of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah or Roberto Firmino could get a goal here. Although Newcastle are on course to at least equal their total points tally of last season, there would have been hopes to push on year – and that just hasn’t happened for Rafa Benitez’s side. The bookies had them to go down a few months ago but a very tight defensive unit has helped the Magpies stay up for another year at least. The sports betting sites will still have Manchester City as favourites to lift the Premier League trophy in a couple of weeks time, but Liverpool will keep on going until there is no mathematical chance of winning – so three points should be won today and the final score line could be 3-1. 1×2 Prediction Score Prediction Betting Tips Total goals over 3.5 at 7/5 Newcastle have been very good defensively this season but Liverpool’s attack is something else and there could be some goals in this one. 10bet are offering 7/5 for over 3.5 goals. Mo Salah to score at any time at 10/11 If Liverpool score – and they invariably do – then it is fairly likely that Mo Salah will be involved. 888sport have the Egypt striker at 10/11 to score at any time.

Stats He is supposed to be having an off season but Mo Salah still leads the race for the Golden Boot with 21. Newcastle have flirted with relegation at times this season but no team outside the top eight have conceded fewer goals. They may have the top goal scorers in the Premier league but Liverpool’s Alisson also leads the way with 18 clean sheets. The defence may have done their job for Newcastle this season but it is up the other end of the pitch where they have had problems. Only four teams have scored fewer than Rafa Benitez’ side.
