Liverpool stand at the 7th position and their main goal is to reach the Top 4. It won’t be an easy job for them because they have 7 points less than Manchester City, who stand at the 4th position, but Liverpool have one match less, so if they win this game the difference between those two teams would be only 4 points. If they fail to reach the Top 4, they can qualify in the Champions League if they win the trophy in the Europa League. In the Semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League, Liverpool will play against Villarreal away and that match is very important for them. Jurgen Klopp‘s men are full of confidence after they eliminated Borussia Dortmund 4-3 in the Quarter-finals of Europa League. After that game they beat Bournemouth 1-2, while in the last Premier League match Liverpool smashed city rivals Everton 4-0 and they want to take another three points against Newcastle. Big blow for home side is the injury of their in-form striker Divock Origi, who has scored five goals in his last five games.
Newcastle Utd stand in the relegation zone and they desperately need points in order to move up in the safe zone. In the last round they took a valuable point against Manchester City 1-1, so they hope that can make another good result. Visitors have already beat Liverpool in the first half of the season 2-0, so everyone in team believe that they can repeat that success. Newcastle have improved their performance and took 4 points in the last two matches. Their coach Rafael Benitez, the ex-Liverpool coach, will return at Anfield. He will probably not make many changes in team and expected lineup would be the same as in the last two matches. Visitors are playing very solid upfront their supporters, but their away performance is one of the worst in league, only two wins in the 17 away Premier League matches. Newcastle have to play open and attack if they want to play in the best football league in England next season.
Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd injuries and suspensions
Home team miss Divock Origi and Christian Benteke. On the other side, visitors will be without Daryl Janmaat and their captain Fabricio Coloccini.
Home team are in the great form and they want to win another game upfront their supporters. Visitors have to play open and this match could be one of the last chances to avoid relegation. I expect interesting and open match between Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd and many goals.
