In their previous game before the international break Liverpool faced Burnley at the Turf Moor and enjoyed a solid 3-0 win. Burnley’s Chris Wood scored himself an own goal, while Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino finished the job for the Reds.
Just three days later Liverpool faces Napoli in a first game from the Champions League, so it’d be interesting to see if the manager Jurgen Klopp is going to make some changes in his starting line-up against Newcastle.
Newcastle United are currently 14th in the Premier League standings with 4 points won so far. The Magpies kicked the season with two consecutive losess, but they won 4 points in their last two matches.
In their last game in the league Newcastle hosted Watfor at the St. James’ Park for a 1-1 draw. Will Hughes opened the score for Watford with a very early goal, but the hosts equalised with a goal from the central defender Fabian Schar minutes before the halftime break.
It seems like Newcastle’s new manager Steve Bruce is starting to get his team better. The Magpies really impressed with their win against Tottenham in London, so let’s see how they will do against another one of the strongest teams in the league.
