Liverpool can pile more misery upon Newcastle in this game...
<div><div><div><div id=":p0"><div id=":ni"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Liverpool vs Newcastle</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, September 14, at Anfield</strong></a></p><p>This is one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures of the Premier League calendar and it has served up some classics over the years. Few fans can forget the sight of Kevin Keegan draped over the advertising hoardings after his title chasing Magpies side lost 4-3 to his former club back in 1996. There have been many more high scoring affairs since then, but Liverpool are very much the superior team nowadays. Jurgen Klopp’s men have made a 100% start to the new campaign and they should sweep Newcastle aside without too many problems.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Alisson has been missing for the Reds since suffering a muscle strain on the opening day of the season. He continued his rehabilitation over the international break, but he is unlikely to return in time for this match. Naby Keita is also out, but the Reds have not seen any more stars injured on international duty so far. Klopp will be keen to unleash star attacking trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino on a shaky Newcastle defence, while in-form Joel Matip is expected to keep his place alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of the Liverpool defence.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Newcastle boss Steve Bruce said Andy Carroll is closing in on a return to full fitness, but the powerful striker will not be back in time to face his former club. Joelinton will continue to lead the line, with Miguel Almiron required to provide creativity and Isaac Hayden and Sean Longstaff sitting in front of a five-man defence. The Magpies have played with a conservative formation so far this season, but they are unlikely to repel Liverpool’s quick and dynamic attack for too long on Saturday.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Liverpool are the heavy favourites to win this game and deservedly so. They have won their last three games against Newcastle, and the Magpies have gone backwards since losing Rafa Benitez left in the summer. The crowd will roar them on at Anfield and they will head into the game full of confidence, so they should be able to secure a comfortable victory. There are plenty of options you can look at in order to extract more value from backing a Liverpool win, including handicaps, half-time / full-time betting and combining the Reds with a goals market. But Liverpool beat Burnley to nil last time out, and a feeble Newcastle attack should not trouble Van Dijk and co unduly, so Liverpool win to nil might be the most attractive option.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Liverpool win to nil at 1.75 (3/4) with Coral</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
