Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd Betting Tip and Prediction. In the last of 32nd round in Premier League Liverpool host Newcastle Utd at Anfield.
Liverpool lost in the last two derby matches against Manchester United 1-2 at home and Arsenal 4-1 away, but despite that fact they still have a chance to reach the 4th position which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League. Manchester City lost against Manchester United in the city derby yesterday and now City have 7 points less than Liverpool, but also one match more, so if the home team manage to take all three points tonight the difference between Liverpool and Manchester City would be only four points. Few days ago Liverpool beat Blackburn Rovers in the Quarter-finals of FA Cup, so they still have a chance to win some trophy this season. Newcastle beat them in the first part of the season, so this could be a good chance for revenge.
Newcastle Utd stand in the middle of the table with 19 points less than Liverpool. They are far from the place which leads in some of the European competition, while on the other side they have only seven points more than the first team in the relegation zone. They are in the terrible form with four lost matches in a row in which they scored one single goal.
Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd injuries and suspensions
Both team have problems with the injuries and suspensions.
In home team Skrtel (27/1 d) and Gerrard (24/6 m) are both out due to suspension, Sakho (15/0 d) and José Enrique (4/0 d) are both injured, while Balotelli (14/1 f) and Lallana (21/4 m) also have some problems with injuries and both will be probably out.
On the other side Newcastle also have problems with the absences, especially in defence. Coloccini (26/1 d) and their top scorer Cissé (19/11 f) are both suspended, while Aarons (3/1 m), Dummett (21/0 d), Haïdara (15/0 d), S. Taylor (10/1 d), Tiote (11/0 m) and De Jong (2/0 m) are all injured, while Janmaat (31/1 d) is doubtful.

Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd predictions and betting tips
Despite the problems with absences, Liverpool is definitely better side and they should win this one, but the odds for home win is very poor. The visitors also have many problems in defence and their recent performance is terrible and I don’t believe that they can make something tonight. However, I expect an interesting match between Liverpool vs Newcastle Utd and at least three goals.
