Welcome to our Newcastle vs Liverpool preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Newcastle are struggling in 19th place in the league. Seven points from their last 6 matches is an improvement on their first 8 matches, where they only managed 3 points. But it isn’t enough and they need to start winning if they don’t want to find themselves too far adrift of the teams above them. Liverpool are rejuvenated under their new manager, with 3 straight victories to their name, including a 6-1 thumping of Southampton last weekend. They will see this as a stepping stone to challenging for the top spots in the league. But Newcastle might have other plans.
