They face the St James Park Stadium in Newcastle, the formation led by Rafael Benitez, Newcastle United, and the visiting team, led by Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool,
in the meeting that marks the return of one of the best coaches to have passed through Liverpool at least since the beginning of the century (like it or not,
it is a fact that Benítez did something that few more could do). In terms of direct confrontation, Liverpool have only won one of their last four matches against local
and has not won in this field for about 4 ½ years. Dummett and Haidara are low for the locals, while Good is in doubt; of the visiting side, Bogdan, Clyne and Lallana are low for the German technician of the “reds”.
Sadio Mané is the great news, returning after suspension.
As for Newcastle, after a rather shaky start to the season, where they lost three consecutive defeats (two of them in the Premier League),
has made an interesting recovery in the last four days, winning three of the four matches he played (and especially important,
as he beat direct competition despite losing to Brighton on Matchday 2). With this, the team falls for 8th place, with 9 points added.
Prognosis Newcastle vs Liverpool:
In my opinion, Liverpool are among the most difficult teams to talk about and do futurism in terms of prognosis, given the consistent inconsistency,
I pass the paradox, taking into account that it can not maintain a consistent course of results, which causes bitter distress, namely in the fight for the trophies in which it is.
The team, in spite of the inconsistency, is in the 6th position of the table being that, in case of victory, jumps to the places of Champions.
Playing away from home, Liverpool is practically the worst defense of the championship (only Palace suffers more goals), which attests to the irregularity of the “reds” something that,
to be added to the fact that Newcastle are in a good moment, namely to play at home (where they scored 5 goals in the last 2 games), I believe it will be in both teams to score.
Still, and given the serious defensive weaknesses of Klopp’s team (due to the lack of quality of some players and the idea of game that the German puts in the field),
I think Newcastle can score more than a goal, even.
