Liverpool vs. Newcastle: Time, TV, streaming, lineups, betting odds in EPL, Matchday 17

Liverpool will look to keep up with Premier League leaders Manchester City when the Reds host Newcastle at Anfield on Thursday.

The pressure is on to match Manchester City’s midweek result after the Citizens knocked down Leeds 7-0 for their seventh straight league win. Liverpool (second, 37 points) are just four points behind and have a five-match Premier League win streak of their own since November’s shocking loss to West Ham, the Reds’ only loss in their league season so far.

At the other end of the table, Eddie Howe may be just four games away from his tenure as manager at Newcastle, but there is a real sense of urgency. The feeling of rejuvenation faded a bit during last weekend’s 4-0 beating at the hands of Leicester City that brought everyone in Tyneside back to Earth. Still, the Magpies (19th, 10 points) have won four points from four games under Howe, a decent loot considering the club was at six points, all on draws, in the 12 games before his signing.

The former Bournemouth boss doesn’t back down from a title contender. “It’s a great opportunity to face the best on earth and see where we are and how we can win over them,” Howe said in his pre-game press conference. “We need concentration, game management, structure, fixed play. The best teams find different ways to win. We have to bring them a threat, a challenge, and we have players and a way of playing to do it.”

Usually a certificate of good health is required for a serious title challenge, and that is what Liverpool possess. Alone, and they are confirmed with injury issues. and they have been wasting time lately, but both have returned to training and could be available for selection, although probably as substitutes.

Any other changes are likely due to squad rotation or matchups, with, and all possibly pressing for playing time, along with the forward. Your listing could see, and fall to the bank for cargo management before a busy holiday period.

He has played every minute this season, and it will be interesting to see if coach Jurgen Klopp decides to give him some rest during the busy month, especially considering that Salah will likely miss a significant part of the season for the Africa Cup of Nations. coming soon in january.

Newcastle are in an equally advantageous position with regard to the health of the team, having survived Leicester City’s defeat with no further worries. That leaves him the only injured Magpie, who has yet to appear this season thanks to a long-term calf injury.

Indeed, Newcastle will rebound from its two-game suspension, which could be seen or sacrificed to restore a five-man defensive line Howe used earlier in the season. However, it is possible that Clark could replace the captain who has been in trouble lately.

If Howe opts to go back to a five-man baseline, that might see him get another look, which would see the bank fall.

Liverpool vs. Newcastle Betting Odds & Predictions

Bookies are looking for a blast on this one, and it’s understandable. Liverpool have wiped out just about everyone in their path this season … until recently.

The Reds fell to West Ham in early November, and some weaknesses have emerged since then. They bounced back wonderfully, putting up four goals past Arsenal, Southampton and Everton, but have notched up a pair of 1-0 wins in their last two games against defensively strong teams at Wolves and Aston Villa.

Newcastle cannot claim to classify itself as “defensively robust” as the Magpies have not kept a single clean sheet all season in the Premier League. Still, this could be a chance for Klopp to rest some tired legs. However, it seems possible to tap into bettors’ love for Liverpool and to seize some positive odds in favor of Newcastle keeping things close, while Liverpool are expected to take all three points.

Supporting Mohamed Salah also seems ideal, with the Egyptian in spectacular form. Salah has scored or assisted a goal in every Premier League game this season, except for one since August. His goalscorer odds at any point are useless, but the first goalscorer odds look attractive enough, especially if Klopp re-selects Oxlade-Chamberlain as center forward. If Jota returns to the lineup, he will also be up to the task, having scored six goals in his last eight starts.
