Liverpool take on the visitors Newcastle in the round 5 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Wednesday, August 31st at Anfield (Liverpool).
Liverpool faced problems at the start of the new season. The Reds forced the fans to recall the vicissitudes of the season before last without the slightest nostalgia. Again, there are numerous injuries and unconvincing game on the field. True, there was a promising start, in the form of a 3-1 with Manchester City, albeit in the Super Cup. But after that, Jurgen Klopp's wards pulled out draws with Fulham and Crystal Palace. And the fundamental confrontation with Manchester United at Old Trafford was lost 1-2, after which the Reds went almost to the relegation zone. Yes, after that they thrashed Bournemouth: a repeat of the Premier League record 9-0, with Firmino benefiting. But what will happen next, did not they burn all the courage on the beating of the newcomer?

Newcastle opted for a rather low-key progress approach. The "Magpies" got new owners a little less than a year ago. Fans seemed to have been rewarded for the long patience and support of their favorites: Mike Ashley was replaced by the richest representatives of the royal family of Saudi Arabia. And, by the way, the newcomers bought in the winter helped the new mentor, Eddie Howe, to make an incredible breakthrough, from a hopeless outsider to a strong middle table team. Many were looking forward to massive stellar purchases in the summer. But so far they are not buying cheap, but pointwise, taking as a basis - Pope, Targett, Botman. But it got off to a good start: a victory over Nottingham Forest, draws and Brighton and even Manchester City (and they were ahead 3-1 there!). After a difficult passage to the Tranmere Rovers 2-1 League Cup, the "black and white" went to Wolverhampton. And only due to Saint-Maximin's goal in the 90th minute the draw was saved.
Newcastle last won at the end of 2015. And last season, Liverpool emerged victorious from both meetings against the Magpies. Liverpool are seen as the clear favourite, but Newcastle are very difficult right now. We bet on guests with a handicap of "+1.5".
Prediction for the match: Newcastle to win with +1.5 handicap.
