1/1 Accurate Football Predictions: Liverpool vs Newcastle United

Betting Tips

The Premier League’s New Year’s Day schedule for 2024 includes a battle of the north when Liverpool hosts Newcastle United at their Anfield base on Monday. The Reds’ 2-0 victory over Burnley on Boxing Day put them atop the table, while Nottingham Forest’s 3-1 home victory over the Magpies last time out left them humbled.

Liverpool vs Newcastle

Liverpool had won their last 12 Premier League games going into this one. That contentious 2-1 away loss to Tottenham on the final day of September marked their most recent top-flight defeat. So far this season, they have only lost one league game. They have won seven of their nine league games at Anfield, thanks to their home form.

Before recent draws with Manchester United and Arsenal, the first seven were victories. In their nine home league games, they have scored 22 goals and given up just six. Liverpool has not lost three home league games without a victory since their bad run at the beginning of 2021.

Newcastle United had a successful year in 2023 overall, but they might want to forget the last few weeks, particularly Boxing Day. In their final league match at that time, they suffered a 3-1 home loss to Nottingham Forest. The Magpies dropped to ninth position after that loss, eight points behind the final Champions League spot.

By the time this New Year’s Day match starts, that very well may be in the double digits. Additionally, Newcastle United was just eliminated from both the Carabao Cup and the Champions League. Newcastle has dropped six of their previous seven games across all competitions, including the penalty shootout loss to Chelsea. Only one victory in nine games on the road has been very poor away form in the Premier League.

Verdict

Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool has blossomed this season, and they plan to maintain their position atop the league standings. This weekend, players who have the potential to be deadly, like Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez, will try to leave their imprint.

Although they have made progress in the last 12 months, Newcastle United appears to have reached a standstill lately. Liverpool should be able to win this game because they are currently the superior team.

When Darwin Nunez opened the score against Burnley in Liverpool’s last 2023 match, it gave the team a lift of confidence. In his past two encounters with Newcastle, the attacker has scored three goals, including a brace in a thrilling victory at St. James’ Park earlier this season.

Nunez is a terrific choice to score against a failing Newcastle defense because he is creating lots of chances this season and has returned to his scoring ways. In five of their last six league travels, the visitors have given up two goals or more. Nunez could score on Monday because of his size and movement, which should cause problems for Newcastle’s defense, which appears worn out.
