Premier League Preview for Newcastle United v Liverpool along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Saturday’s early match pits the top two leading scorers in the Premier League with Daniel Sturridge and Loic Remy. There is also something of a contrast between the two teams with Liverpool surprising many with their form while sitting second in the table while Newcastle have struggled with consistency to start their season.
Newcastle’s home form is 1-1-1 with three goals scored and three allowed. This compares to Liverpool’s away form of 2-1-0 scoring six goals and allowing two. Defensively Liverpool have the upper hand in allowing only five goals this season while Newcastle United have allowed 12.
My prediction is for a Liverpool win. They have continued to build on a solid start to the season and the addition of Luis Suarez has only added to their potency. Newcastle could certainly get a result in either a draw or a win. They have started to look better in recent matches and just need to work on balancing their attack and defense. The last two weeks could be a good thing for this Newcastle team as well as the resurgence of Loic Remy in recent EPL games.

Form: Newcastle (D, W, W, L, L, W) Liverpool (W, W, D, L, W, W)
