Newcastle return to St. James’ Park this weekend, as they look to get back on track after suffering a first league defeat of the campaign against Man City. However, it would be hard to overlook how impressive the Magpies were in their opening match of the season, as they thumped Aston Villa 5-1 at St. James’ Park. Interestingly, that win over the Villa extended their unbeaten run to 22 games when they have taken the lead.
However, the Magpies have struggled in this fixture throughout Premier League history, as they are winless in their previous 13 against the Reds. Their most recent win came back in December 2015, as Newcastle landed a 2-0 win over Liverpool at St. James’ Park.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in their opening two matches this season, and they landed a first league win of the season last time out. Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz both found the net in a comfortable 3-1 success over Bournemouth at Anfield. The win means that the Reds are now unbeaten across their last 13 matches in the competition.
Over that period, Liverpool have fallen behind on five occasions, but they have gained nine points from losing positions. No side has won more points over the same period. The Reds have also enjoyed their recent visits to St. James’ Park, as they have won on four of their previous five visits to Newcastle.
Newcastle vs Liverpool Prediction
This will be an exciting match between two evenly matched sides. However, we find it challenging to overlook Liverpool’s excellent record in this fixture, meaning that we will be siding with an away win on Sunday.
