Newcastle United vs Liverpool

The sad results of Newcastle United in recent times may continue to be prolonged when the next round of "Shots" must host Liverpool defending champions at home St James' Park.

It was disappointing for Brentford to knock out of the quarter-finals of the English League Cup with Newcastle United, but most recently, the fans of the St James' Park home team continued to receive another sad result. However, in the last round, Newcastle United, who failed against Manchester City, has a highly appreciated ability, which is also a result not surprising with the ability of coach Steve Bruce's team in the Premier League this season.

There have been sad results for the recent Newcastle United fans they have reasons to continue to worry about as their beloved side has now fallen to 13th place of the standings. Not to mention the upcoming return to St James' Park's home field, teachers and coaches Steve Bruce will have to welcome Liverpool to be superior compared to them. The previous head-to-head record was also not on Newcastle United's side when all 5 encounters against their opponents in recent years had received disastrous results against their opponents.

Meanwhile, Liverpool may have to blame themselves when coach Klopp's team failed to beat the last tiny West Bromwich team at home. Leaving opponents to hold in the recent round makes Liverpool miss the opportunity to increase the gap in points against rivals behind in the title race this season.

In fact, with Liverpool today they still hold great advantages for their journey to defend their championship because they more or less get 3 points more than the second position that Everton currently holds. However, the current gap is not too big and the race will certainly be very difficult for coach Klopp's teachers and students because if only one mistake is made, the distance between them and their opponents can be leveled. any time. Marching on the field of Newcastle United in the upcoming round with Liverpool, they are still the name that is evaluated for their superiority. With the goal of maintaining the top spot in the rankings and the ability shown by the Red Brigade before, it is understandable that they are headed for a victory.

Speaking after the draw of West Brom, coach Juergen Klopp said that it was like a failure for him. “We held the game so well, that I felt 90 percent of the ball in my team. But in the end Liverpool could not win, ”said the German army. 
It is possible to understand Klopp's mood. Because it is impossible to win 3 points at home, in front of a team that stands at the bottom of the rankings, it is difficult to digest with the champions of the Premier League. More regrettable, that draw made Liverpool miss the opportunity to speed up and go further than the rest. 

However, in this round, the second-place Leicester team was drawn 1-1 by Crystal Palace and the third ranked team Everton was postponed against Man City due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the Etihad Stadium. This is a great scene for Liverpool to take advantage of. Just beat Newcastle in the match tonight, coach Klopp's team will have a 6-point gap with the rest.

Defeating Newcastle is probably also a not difficult task for Liverpool if you look at the recent confrontation record between the two sides. The Merseyside team has currently won all 5 Newcastle clashes since 2018. In which, there were 2 times they had a triumphant song at the opponent's home of St James' Park. These victories will be a great fulcrum for Liverpool to aim for victory in the trip tonight, and even more worth mentioning when The Kop's away record is also quite good. 

Liverpool is still unbeaten after 8 recent trips away from home, with 5 draws and 3 wins. In particular, their last victory was a show of attacking football, when Liverpool crushed host Crystal Palace to 7 goals without equalizing. That victory was a heavy warning for Newcastle, the team that did not make anything strong at home.

Since the beginning of the season, Newcastle have lost 3 and drew 1 of 6 home matches, with the latest result that they let Fulham lose 1 point in the 14th round. when kicking at home: the ability to defend. Coach Steve Bruce's team has conceded the last 11 Premier League matches at St James' Park, thereby leveling the club's record of consecutive home conceding, set in 2005 under Graeme Souness.

A home team dotted in defense like that, with the fate of defeat against Liverpool, is too suitable for the Premier League champions to correct the mistake in the previous game. Although they did not achieve impressive results like the same period last year, at this time, Liverpool still possesses powerful weapons, still showing the strength to be able to knock down simple opponents like Newcastle. . The last 11 matches in the Premier League, Liverpool were unbeaten, scored 26 goals, and won 6 victories. Klopp's best shooters like Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane or even rookie Diogo Jota are still in high form, with Salah leading the list of top scorer this season with 13 goals. 

Liverpool last time mainly lost points in the Premier League because the defenders made a mistake when they lacked the number one blocker Virgil van Dijk. Tonight, the Dutch superstar has not yet returned, but fortunately Newcastle does not seem to be able to exploit the weakness of Liverpool's midfielder. The home team has lost both of their last 2 matches against Big Six and only scored 1 goal in those 2 matches. This time, in front of the strongest team among the Big Six, it is even more difficult for Newcastle to avoid an empty end.
