Newcastle FC is on its way to a crucial match against Liverpool today, as both teams hope to close out 2020 with a triumph. Liverpool is only five points ahead of Newcastle as they head into this week’s round of fixtures, and a poor performance from The Reds could reduce that gap to 2 points. Furthermore, if The Magpies win, Liverpool could very well lose their place at the top.
While Liverpool has been performing well over the past few weeks, their underwhelming draw with West Brom this past weekend has tarnished their recent record. At the same time, Newcastle FC is going through a pretty rough patch of their own: they haven’t been able to win their last four matches. In fact, Newcastle’s 1-0 defeat to Brentford actually saw them bow out of the League Cup.
Newcastle FC are winless in seven Premier League games against Liverpool, and they’ve lost the last five in a row. As if that wasn’t enough to fill The Reds with confidence, Liverpool is looking to win three consecutive top-flight away games against Newcastle for the first time. Liverpool has scored exactly three goals in each of its last two matches against The Magpies.
If Newcastle FC fans want to feel a little better, they could consider Newcastle are unbeaten in their last four Premier League home games against reigning champions. Unfortunately, another key stat when it comes to Newcastle FC is they’ve only won their final league game in two of the last seventeen calendar years: beating Everton in 2014 and Nottingham Forest in 2016.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have won their final league game in each of the last six calendar years. They are certainly the favorites going into today’s match against Newcastle FC, even though The Reds aren’t currently at their strongest.
Watch this guy
Mohamed Salah has been making Liverpool proud, becoming the Premier League’s top scorer so far with thirteen goals. The good news for Newcastle FC: Salah’s not consistent. The unpredictable player has excelled in some games and utterly failed in others – Salah simply couldn’t make an impression in the Liverpool match against West Brom, for example.
Newcastle FC likes to defend in deep blocks against top-quality attackers, so we can expect Mohamed Salah to find a serious challenge against his talents in this match. However, the Liverpool star has proven to be a threat from long-range as well, so The Magpies’ traditional defense strategy might not be enough.
Salah’s presence in the game – alongside other Liverpool powerhouses like van Dijk and Jota – ultimately contributes to what most soccer enthusiasts & analysts are expecting: a Liverpool victory over Newcastle FC. Some websites are going as far as predicting a 3-0 Liverpool win, which will certainly lift the spirits of Red fans everywhere and provide Magpies fans with an unsurprising, if demoralizing, development.
