Liverpool FC vs Newcastle United Match Preview and Betting Tips - Premier League 2019/20
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool came close to realizing their potential in the 2017/18 season, when they reached the finals of UEFA Champions League. A year later, they finally won their sixth UCL title. However, Klopp knows that his job is far from over, since he is yet to win the Premier League.
The Reds came agonizingly close last year, but that is a thing of history and the Merseyside-club are not willing to leave any stone unturned this year. They have won all the four games they have played so far, and have scored 12 goals in total.
On Saturday (September 14), they will take on Newcastle United. Steve Bruce’s men had a horrific start to their campaign, losing against Arsenal and Norwich City. But things turned unexpectedly for them and they picked up four points in their next two games, including a shock victory against Tottenham Hotspur.
Last Meeting between the sides
When Liverpool last met Newcastle United in May, the match did not turn out to be a one-way traffic. The Magpies showed great character, but eventually ended up losing 3-2. Christian Atsu and Salomon Rondon scored for the hosts, while Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi scored for the vicitors.
