Newcastle host Liverpool in a tantilising fixture early in this Premier League season. Both teams are expected to challenge for the Champions League spots this year and with plenty of competition from the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and West Ham, today’s encounter could be a crucial one come the end of the season.

Both teams have made mixed starts to the new campaign with Newcastle looking slightly stronger of the two despite being lower in the tabel. Eddie Howe’s men were impressive winners against Aston Villa on the opening day but were edged out 1-0 by Manchester City last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, meanwhile, started their campaign with a shaky draw away at Chelsea before sweeping Bournemouth aside 3-1 despite of a red card for Alexis Mac Allister. New signing Wataru Endo makes his full debut for the Reds after coming on as a substitute against the Cherries and he’ll need to quickly get to grips with the Premier League against a Newcastle side on the rise.

Follow all the action from St. James’ Park as Newcastle host Liverpool and get all the latest odds right here:


HT Newcastle 1-0 Liverpool

The two big talking points of the first half came within a couple of minutes of each other. Anthony Gordon nicked the ball away from Trent Alexander-Arnold then slotted it past Alisson to give the hosts the lead.

Virgil van Dijk was then shown a red card for clattering into Alexander Isak and denying a goalscoring opportunity.

Advantage Newcastle.

Newcastle 1-0 Liverpool

42 mins: Liverpool have settled down now and are moving the ball better when in possession.

The need to get Trent Alexander-Arnold up the pitch leaves them vulnerable in defence though as there are a lot of space for Newcastle to exploit with their extra man.

Newcastle 1-0 Liverpool

39 mins: Liverpool are under real pressure. Newcastle work the ball out wide and slip it into the path of Almiron on the edge of the box. He takes a touch and shoots once again but this time the effort goes wide.

The Reds take their time getting the ball back in play which elicits groans and boos from the watching fans.

A short corner comes to Kieran Trippier who flicks the ball into the box. Trent Alexander-Arnold nods it over to Miguel Almiron who chests the ball down and rattles volley at goal.

Alisson manages to dive across and get two hands to the ball. He lifts it onto the underside of the crossbar then flaps it away. Massive save from the Liverpool goalkeeper.

Newcastle 1-0 Liverpool

33 mins: Liverpool have it all to do now. They’re all over the place and looked like deers in headlights at the minute as Newcastle’s aggressive and determined play is too much for them.

Luis Diaz is deflated as he’s sacrificed to bring Joe Gomez on as a Virgil van Dijk replacement.
