Liverpool vs Newcastle Match Preview and Team News
Liverpool got the job done on Boxing Day, with a 2-0 win over Burnley. With the victory, Liverpool went back on top of the EPL table but Arsenal have a game in hand. The Reds opened up the scoring early on, as Darwin Nuñez finished off a Cody Gakpo pass first-time. Burnley had some half-chances throughout the match but didn’t manage to put a single shot on target. In his return to action after missing eight games, Diogo Jota scored a 90th-minute goal to seal the victory for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side are now unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League matches and have only lost once midway through the 2023-24 campaign. Dominik Szoboszlai has excellent ball control, and can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like that. Diogo Jota is enjoying himself on the field, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems because he goes through the defense like a fast train. Ben Doak (Meniscus tear), Konstantinos Tsimikas (Broken collarbone), Stefan Bajcetic (Calf injury), Alexis Mac Allister (Knee injury), Andrew Robertson (Shoulder injury), Thiago (Hip injury) and Joel Matip (Cruciate ligament tear) will not be taking part for Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp.
Newcastle’s form has been free-falling over the last couple of months. The Magpies are out of the Champions League, and European competition altogether, and they’ve lost four of their last five Premier League matches. On Boxing Day, former Newcastle man Chris Wood scored a hat trick against his former club as Nottingham Forest defeated Newcastle 3-1. Alexander Isak opened up the scoring for the hosts with a penalty kick goal, but Wood had his hat trick within an hour. It was Newcastle’s second home loss of the season in the EPL stats, as Liverpool are the only other team to defeat them at St. James’ Park. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Anthony Gordon plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe has to contend with several unavailable players. Harvey Barnes (Foot injury), Matt Targett (Hamstring injury), Nick Pope (Shoulder injury), Elliot Anderson (Back injury), Joe Willock (Achilles tendon problems), Jacob Murphy (Shoulder injury) and Jamaal Lascelles (unknown injury) are not ready for selection.
