Liverpool vs Newcastle United Betting Tips: Brazilians involved in Wizard's Preview
Live on BT Sport, Liverpool host Newcastle United this Wednesday night at Anfield. Klopp’s men started off their season in disappointing fashion having drawn their first two games against Fulham and Crystal Palace and then getting beaten by Manchester United at Old Trafford. However, they bounced back emphatically winning 9-0 against Bournemouth and will be looking to continue their winning momentum here against Newcastle.
Liverpool vs Newcastle Tips:
The visitors continued their unbeaten start to the season courtesy of a sensational 90th minute equaliser by Allan Saint-Maximin but have drawn their last 3 Premier League games in a row. They will be aware how big of a challenge it is going away to Anfield but having already taken a point from the Champions Manchester City 2 weeks ago, morale will be high and the players will be confident of pulling of an upset. This fixture has been full of goals in recent history with at least 4 goals being scored in 3 of the last 4 meetings at Anfield and we could be in for another cracking Premier League fixture.
An exciting clash awaits us this Wednesday at Anfield and as usual, I have you covered with 2 of my best betting angles for this game included in the preview below:
Liverpool have a lengthy list of injuries. Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita, Diogo Jota, Thiago, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones & Calvin Ramsey are out injured while Darwin Nunez is suspended. Harvey Elliot and Kelleher are doubtful.
Bruno Guimaraes, Emil Krafth, Jonjo Shelvey & Callum Wilson are out for Newcastle while Kieran Trippier & Allan Saint-Maximin are doubtful.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
Newcastle possible starting lineup:
Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Willock, S Longstaff, Joelinton; Almiron, Wood, Fraser
- Over 0 goals in the 1st half for Liverpool
- Luis Diaz Over 1.5 shots in the match
- Over 1.5 offsides for Newcastle
Liverpool have scored a 1st half goal in their last 7 consecutive home games against Newcastle. They found their goalscoring touch against Bournemouth, scoring five 1st half goals against them. They should be able to get another 1st half goal here.
Luis Diaz has been Liverpool’s player of the season so far having scored 3 goals including a brace against Bournemouth at the weekend. He has had 2 or more shots in all 4 of his league games so far this season so I am backing that trend to continue here.
Finally, Liverpool’s high line consistently catches teams offside and Newcastle have been caught offside 9 times already in 4 games this season which is an average of 2.25 per game. I expect Newcastle to comfortably clear the “Over 1.5 offsides” line here. Combining these 3 selections gives us a solid betbuilder and I am happy to stake 1 point on our main bet for this clash.
Roberto Firmino is expected to start here after providing 3 assists in just 69 minutes against Bournemouth at the weekend. He also provided an assist in this fixture last season in a 3-1 win.
Joelinton averages the most fouls for Newcastle so far this season (1.8) and has already been booked twice this campaign. He was also booked in this fixture last season. Combining these 2 selections gives us a cracking longshot @ 15/1 and I am happy to stake a small 0.25pt on that as our final bet.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
