Goalfest on the cards as Newcastle host Liverpool


One of the grand old fixtures of the Premier League, Newcastle v Liverpool has rarely disappointed in terms of entertainment.

10 of the last 14 meetings between the sides have seen at least three goals, with six of the past seven at St James’ Park hitting the mark.

Over 2.5 goals can be backed at 4/5 this time around, and as three of the past four meetings at Newcastle have seen over 3.5, that is also a tempting bet at 19/10.

Both teams are in free-scoring form in the league heading into the game, with Newcastle’s last four league games all seeing at least three goals.

Three of Liverpool’s past four in the Premier League have also hit the mark, including both of their last two away days.

Last season Liverpool won the match 6-0, with Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson both netting two. That was the Reds’ fourth win in seven trips to Newcastle, with the Magpies winning the other three.

The England striker’s partnership with Luis Suarez will be key to Liverpool’s chances of success, as they have scored five and set up two between them in the Reds’ last two games.

Liverpool, who have taken 16 points from their first seven games to sit second in the league, are 9/10 to beat the Magpies, with the hosts 3/1 to pick up a second home win of the season.

Newcastle lost 3-2 to Hull in their last home league match, with Fulham the only side to lose at St James’ Park so far this campaign.

Alan Pardew’s team are 11th in the league having taken 10 points from their opening seven games of the season.
