It's a classic Premier League clash as Newcastle United host Liverpool, 12:45pm UK time.
The English Premier League is back this Saturday with an intriguing match as Liverpool arrives at St. James' Park to meet Newcastle United (12:45pm UK time).
Newcastle Getting Back
Newcastle has just gotten out of the relegation zone after beating Leicester and Tottenham in the team's last two games. Currently positioned in the 14th spot with 10 points (2w, 4d, 3l), Newcastle could very well use three points from today's encounter which could boost them up higher in the table adjacent to the top eight, although the -5 goal difference might be hindering.
Newcastle are 3 games unbeaten and their win against the Spurs last week was very impressive, showing a very good midfield game and great finishing by Ayoze Perez. With the home advantage, Newcastle could take Liverpool today.
Liverpool Under Pressure
Liverpool's Premier League season got off to a rocky start and they lost their last Champions League to Real Madrid at 0-3. However, the Reds will be energized by the amazing comeback against Swansea in Tuesday's Capital One cup game, where Mario Balotelli who was under heavy criticism, proved his worth by equalizing in the 86th minute, and Dejan Lovren brought the win with a goal in the 94th minute.
Balotelli still has proving to do and he could use today as a chance to get some more credit back. Coach Brendan Rodgers might start with Rickie Lambert alongside Balotelli as Daniel Sturridge is still out due to injury. Liverpool really need the three points today and they'll work hard to make it happen.
