Liverpool vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

Liverpool vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

As the clock ticks down to 2024, Anfield prepares for a New Year’s Eve clash with a familiar foe – Newcastle United. With the top of the English Premier League throne within reach, Liverpool are hungry for a win to solidify their position.

The Reds have been on a fiery run, unbeaten in 12 league games since a cruel defeat in September. Their fortress-like home form is just as impressive, boasting 8 wins in 10 games this season. Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t tasted defeat at Anfield in the EPL since October 2022, a remarkable 21-game streak stretching into the new year.

But the fireworks may be dampened for Newcastle. With consecutive losses to relegation-threatened Luton Town and Nottingham Forest, their recent form paints a grim picture. The Magpies haven’t won away from home in four games, managing only one draw in their last nine trips.

The odds reflect this disparity, with Liverpool favored heavily at 1.40. Even bookmakers smell victory in the air for the Reds.

History Whispers Liverpool’s Name:

The Reds dominate recent encounters, holding a five-match winning streak against Newcastle.
Last year’s meeting was a nail-biter, settled by a dramatic injury-time winner from Fabio Carvalho.
Newcastle’s last Anfield victory came in 1994; they haven’t tasted victory in 28 visits.

Verdict: A Red-Hot New Year’s Eve:

My fiery tip is Liverpool to win with over 2.5 goals, promising an exciting evening for Reds fans. If this isn’t available, go for a home win with both teams scoring for a touch of suspense.

Mohamed Salah, on his final hurrah before the Africa Cup of Nations, seems eager to add his name to the score sheet. Consider an “anytime scorer” bet for the Egyptian maestro.

For the brave, a 3-1 full-time score might light up your betting slip. Liverpool have netted exactly 3 goals in 5 of their 9 Anfield games this season, making it a tempting option.

So, prepare yourselves for a red-hot New Year’s Eve encounter. With Liverpool fueled by home advantage and hungry for the top spot, Newcastle may struggle to extinguish the Anfield fireworks. Will the Magpies pull off an upset, or will Klopp’s men ring in the new year with a triumphant victory? Tune in and let the football do the talking!
