Liverpool vs Newcastle: Top Free Betting Tips

Liverpool vs Newcastle will be an unbelievable fixture to start off the Premier League games for 2024. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

After Arsenal's back-to-back losses, Liverpool have a real chance of getting a solid lead at the top of the table. And Newcastle are the perfect opponent at this moment in time. They have lost four of the last five Premier League fixtures and have been conceding too many goals.

They conceded three to Nottingham Forest, four to Tottenham, three to Everton, and even lost to Luton. They are in a terrible position right now and Liverpool should be able to score a few goals here.

Match Result Prediction: Liverpool to Win

Not only do we expect Liverpool to win, but it should happen with a solid margin. It is true that their attack often stumbles and scores fewer goals than expected. Fans also often have to wait for the late minutes of the second half to see goals. But in this match, we expect a different performance. Newcastle will not be ultra-defensive like Burnley or Man Utd, for example, and there will be more space for their attack.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-0 to Liverpool

Based on the performances of the two teams in recent weeks, we believe that Newcastle may fail to score a single goal in this fixture. Liverpool have the best defence in the league, after all, and the team has conceded only six goals at Anfield, less than any other in the PL at home.

When we compare the Liverpool vs Newcastle lineups, we definitely believe that the home side has a massive advantage in strength right now. Newcastle have been troubled by countless injuries and will not be with their best squad.
