Where: St. James’ Park, Newcastle, EnglandWhen: Sunday, August 27, 5:30 pm

The Magpies have a very tough schedule at the start of the campaign, yet there won’t be any excuse if they fail to deliver in this one. By “deliver,” we mean to take all three points. Liverpool is arguably the biggest English club, but Newcastle aims to become the best right now, and no matter who comes to St. James’ Park, they are always going for the win. As for the Reds, four points in two rounds seems ok, but they want more.

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Preview

Newcastle

Following a magnificent opener against Aston Villa, whom they massacred 5-1, the Magpies lost their first game in a while. They visited the champions, Manchester City, who was better than the guests from north, winning by a minimal result, 1-0. Julian Alvarez decided this one, and honestly, the Citizens were a better team that day. 

This shouldn’t and won’t discourage Newcastle, who looked great throughout the summer. Eddie Howe got a couple of players to add more depth to its rotation and some, like Tonali, do improve the lineup, adapting all of them very quickly. 

The Magpies will play a bit more offensive football compared to the last year’s one because now they not only have a bigger and better rotation but also, due to the created chemistry on the field. 

Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp knows that he needs to improve his defense, otherwise, there won’t be any chances for the German manager and the Reds to win the title. We’ve seen Bournemouth creating problems at Anfield, even taking the lead and scoring a goal. 

However, the Reds’ attack covered up the problems in the back line, but that won’t always be the case. As soon as the hosts found the crack in Bournemouth’s defense, they started pounding, easily flipping the result.

Liverpool’s games bring plenty of goals, not only due to their defense, but the world-class offense. The potential Klopp has in attack is terrifying.

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Head to Head 

Liverpool was better on both occasions last year, triumphing at home in the first meeting of the year, 2-1, and then going to St. James where they posted a 0-2 victory. 

Newcastle vs. Liverpool Predictions

Both teams showed a tendency in recent times to play high-scoring games. Liverpool’s recklessness creates an environment for goals on both ends, which is our pick for Sunday’s encounter. The Reds’ defense won’t be able to prevent the rivals from scoring at least once, and we share the same opinion about Newcastle’s back line. 

Our verdict: Both teams to score
