Newcastle United welcomes Liverpool in a very important game for the title race in the Premier League. Let’s have a look at this clash at the St. James’ Park in our vip soccer predictions today on Saturday night.
For the home side this match does not have much of a meaning. Right now the Magpies are 13th in the league with 42 points, having a record of 11 wins, 9 draws and 16 defeats. They are just one point behind the 12th Crystal Palace, so on theory they could improve their position in the league.
In their last five games Rafa Benitez’ boys won twice, lost twice and made one draw. In their last match Newcastle visited Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express and made a 1-1 draw. Ayoze Perez opened the score for Newcastle, but Pascal Gross equalised for Brighton & Hove.
Of course, this game is much more important for Liverpool. The Reds are still in the title race, being just one point behind the leader Manchester City. Liverpool’s task here is pretty clear – beat Newcastle and hope that City will make a mistake. There are just two rounds until the end of the season.
What Jurgen Klopp must do now is motivate his players after the crushing 0-3 defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League. Another problem for the Reds would be the fatigue, because Liverpool gave a serious effort at the Camp Nou. Don’t be surprised if Klopp makes some changes in his starting line-up, replacing some of his players with fresher ones.
The visitors will be without the striker Roberto Firmino and the midfielder Naby Keita, who are both injured. That’s just another problem for Jurgen Klopp to have a thought about.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Premier League crucial clash between Newcastle United and Liverpool on Saturday. We wish you good luck.
