After a poor start to the season for Newcastle United which saw them lost their 2 opening games to Huddersfield and Tottenham, they seem to have steered their ship to the right path for now.
They experienced great improvement at the end of august beating West Ham 3-0 and followed it up with wins over Swansea and Stoke before losing to Brighton. The Magpies are now in a comfortable position (10th) in the table and less pressure on their back for now.
Liverpool have consistently been on the decline at the moment. They have failed to win any of their opening Champions League games leaving them with just 2 points in the group. Domestically they haven’t been in the best of form lately despite winning Leicester City 3-2 last weekend.
The Reds have just a win in their last 6 games in all competitions. A lot of problems trail Jurgen Klopp’s side at both ends of the pitch. They allowed in 19 goals in 11 games this season keeping clean sheets just twice and clearly have problem on finishing or converting chances created.
Liverpool are a lot worse away from home when it comes to defending, they have conceded 14 goals in 6 away games this season. They need to address this issue if they fancy getting a win in this game.
