Premier League: Liverpool v Newcastle United match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at Anfield
Friday 02 November 2012
Not for the first time this season Liverpool must pick themselves up quickly after a bitterly disappointing result last time out.
Sunday's Premier League visit of Newcastle United follows swiftly on from the demise of the club's League Cup defence against Swansea City in midweek and the match also represents Liverpool's fifth game in 16 days.
Newcastle currently sit 10th in the league standings, two points and two places above Liverpool. Both sides will want to improve on their current positions and quickly, making this an important clash.
KICK-OFF: Sunday, 4pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Newcastle 2 (Cisse 2) Liverpool 0, Premier League, April 2012
Liverpool 3 (Bellamy 2, Gerrard) Newcastle 1 (Agger OG), Premier League, December 2011
Liverpool 3 (Rodriguez, Kuyt, Suarez) Newcastle 0, Premier League, May 2011
Brendan Rodgers' side have also kept just two clean sheets in the league this campaign.
Newcastle have fared even worse, keeping just one.
A win at Anfield would be the Magpies' first since 1994.
Liverpool to win: 1.53
Newcastle to win: 5.75
