Liverpool vs Newcastle: What to expect

Having lost their first Premier League game against Newcastle under Jürgen Klopp in December 2015, Liverpool are unbeaten in each of their last nine against the Magpies (W5 D4).

Since winning their first ever Premier League visit to Liverpool in April 1994, Newcastle are winless in their last 25 visits to Anfield (D5 L20). Only against Manchester United have they ever had a longer winless away run in their league history (29 between 1973 and 2012).

Liverpool have won just one of their six Premier League home games played on Thursdays (2-0 vs Sheffield United in January 2020), losing both such games last season against Burnley and Chelsea.

Newcastle have won just two of their last 14 midweek (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) Premier League games (D4 L8), winning 4-1 at Bournemouth in July 2020 and 1-0 against Sheffield United in May last season.

Liverpool have won 1,999 of their 4,226 top-flight matches (D1047 L1180), and would be the first ever side to win 2,000 English top-flight games with victory here.

Newcastle have just 10 points from 16 Premier League games this season; when converting to three points per win, only in 1977-78 (eight) have they had as few or fewer at this stage of a league campaign, a season in which they went on to be relegated from the top-flight. Meanwhile, Newcastle have also picked up fewer away points in the Premier League this season than any other side (three), and are one of just two sides yet to win on the road in the division this term (also Burnley).

After scoring at least twice in 11 consecutive Premier League games, Liverpool have won their last two league matches 1-0. They last had more consecutive 1-0 victories in the competition between May and September 2013 (4 in a row).

Mohamed Salah has scored in all four of his Premier League home games for Liverpool against Newcastle, netting exactly once each time. Against no side does he have a better 100% scoring record at Anfield in the competition.

Since taking four points from Liverpool in the 2016-17 season (W1 D1), Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has lost his last six Premier League games against the Reds, by an aggregate score of 19-1.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has either scored or assisted a goal in each of his last 14 Premier League appearances, just one short of Jamie Vardy’s record of 15 set between August and December 2015.
