When Liverpool plays Newcastle United in the fifth round of the Premier League, they will be looking to build on their spectacular 9-0 victory over Bournemouth.
It’s impressive that the Reds managed to win their first game of the year, but it’s odd that key attacker Mohamed Salah wasn’t directly responsible for any of those goals.
Darwin Nunez will not be allowed to play in the game, and all of Keita, Thiago, Matip, and Konate are injured, so Roberto Firmino, who scored a pair of goals over the weekend, should keep his starting position up front.
The Magpies, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league fixtures, and they are eager to remain undefeated in the 2022/2023 season.
Lverpool, though, impressed in their last league match, and we predict that they will pick up all three points from the match.
Both Jonjo Shelvey and Callum Wilson continue to miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
This match will be played on 31/08/2022 at 20:00
Prediction: Home Win.
