Liverpool v Newcastle Betting Preview
Channel: BT Sport 1
With 10 Premier League fixtures now remaining, it’s almost safe to say that Manchester City have won the title. This leaves the rest of the top teams to fight over the leftovers. Liverpool are currently hot on Manchester United’s tail pushing for that 2nd place position after Mourinho’s men dropped off from the title race. Jürgen Klopp’s men- especially the front three- have been the surprise package this season, and a big part of their success comes from Mo Salah, who has hit the back of the net over 30 times this season.
However, Newcastle United’s situation is the complete opposite, with the Magpies looking to successfully avoid relegation. Again. Despite their league position, Rafa Benitez’s men have only lost one league game in 2018- to Manchester City. It’ll be a tense battle, but Newcastle fans will probably continue to enjoy Premier League football next season.
Another tense battle will be Saturday’s game. Matches between the two sides are always entertaining, as well completely unpredictable.
Clyne and Henderson are all doubts, and for Newcastle the same can be said for Gámez, Slimani and Shelvey.
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Dijk, Robertson, Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mané.
Potential Newcastle Starting XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Murphy, Hayden, Diamé, Kenedy, Joselu.
