Liverpool’s top-four target

Amid collapsing Super League plans and open player revolt, Liverpool have had a key Premier League fixture to prepare for this week, and the Reds need a win over Newcastle on Saturday to stay in the hunt for a top-four finish this season.

The soon-to-be-dethroned champions played out a 1-1 draw with Leeds on Monday evening against a backdrop of breaking news and breakaway controversy – a result that allowed Spurs to replace Pool in sixth place two days later with their win over Southampton.

At Anfield, Liverpool have won just once in their last nine league assignments, though that victory did come in their most recent fixture there in a 2-1 triumph over Aston Villa.

Newcastle all but safe

Successive wins over Burnley and West Ham have all but allayed any lingering relegation worries for Newcastle, and the Magpies could jump to a lofty 13th spot if they can upset the odds on Merseyside on Saturday.

Steve Bruce’s decision to take the shackles of his team has paid dividends, and Newcastle plundered at least two goals in each of their last three fixtures, gathering seven points from the nine on offer along the way.

Win but no clean sheet for Liverpool?

With plans for the Super League demolished and a heavy week off the pitch behind them, Liverpool’s players should be pumped up to perform when back on the grass on Saturday and a win against Newcastle should follow.

Jurgen Klopp’s charges have won five of their last six encounters with the Magpies, though Newcastle did manage to notch consolation efforts in the most recent trio of those defeats.

Liverpool’s dismal defensive record at Anfield that reads just one clean sheet in their last ten league matches suggests a Newcastle outfit playing with greater freedom can impact the scoresheet again, and backing the home win and both teams to score combination appeals as a result.
