Premier League action resumes this weekend as Liverpool, still boasting a 100% record, entertain Newcastle at Anfield in Saturday’s early kick off.
The Reds have taken maximum points from their opening four games and, in truth, have yet to be seriously tested. They picked up their first clean sheet of the season against Burnley last time out and looked dangerous going forward.
Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Mane have seven goals between them already, and they’re only going to get better and better as the season goes on. Klopp’s side currently average three goals per game in the league this season and they’re 4/6 to score three or more goals against Newcastle.
Steve Bruce has had a mixed start to life as Newcastle manager. Back to back defeats against Arsenal and Norwich cranked up the pressure on the already under-fire boss, but a shock victory over Spurs followed by a one all draw against Watford provided some breathing space heading into the international break.
Going forward the Magpies have looked pretty decent, scoring in all but one of their games this season. They’re 11/10 to find the back of the net against Liverpool.
The Reds did the double over Newcastle last season with an aggregate score of 7-2. Four of those goals coming in a 4-0 win at Anfield and It’s 17/2 for a repeat scoreline on Saturday.
Mo Salah has been dangerous, but nowhere near his best. And he’s 14/5 to open the scoring.
Liverpool are as short as 1/6 to bag all three points and 5/6 to win to nil. The draw is a whopping 8/1, while Newcastle are 22/1 to bag an unlikely three points on the road.
