Liverpool v Newcastle predictions and free football betting tips for tonight’s Monday Night Football in the Premier League.
After a crushing 4-1 defeat at the hands of rivals Arsenal in their last premier league outing, Liverpool have all but kissed goodbye to a second consecutive season of champions league football.
Brendan Rogers side have struggled after the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and have had this compounded by the consistent absence of star striker Daniel Sturridge. Liverpool’s only hope of silverware this season is the FA Cup, after winning their quarter final replay with Blackburn at Ewood park on Wednesday evening and the chance to play at Wembley should be enough to spur the Anfield on.
Newcastle are also a team who have failed to light up the Premier League this season and are currently on a run of four consecutive defeats including a 1-0 loss in the Tyne Wear derby in their last outing.
Newcastle have not done the league double over Liverpool since the 1993-1994 season and I don’t see them being able to build on their 1-0 victory over Brendan Rogers side at St James’s Park in November. For our first Liverpool v Newcastle betting tip, Liverpool are being offered at 6/5 with Sky Bet to win the game by two goals or more (-1 handicap) and with the Kop expecting a performance from their side I can see this being a game Liverpool will impose themselves on and go on the hunt for goals.
With the ever impending departure of Steven Gerrard nearly upon us, much of the responsibility will be shifted to the expected new captain Jordan Henderson. Henderson has found the net on seven occasions this season across all competitions and has scored four times in his last five Premier League appearances. Coral are currently offering odds of 10/1 that he is the first goal scorer in Liverpool v Newcastle tonight and the fact that he has clearly found his shooting boots of late makes these odds ever the more tempting.
I believe this could be an easy evening for Liverpool who will be desperate to put together a good run of form in the vein hope of teams above them slipping up and I fully expect them to take command early doors and be leading at both half time and full time. If this happens you could be quids in with Bet Victor who go 11/10 on Liverpool HT/FT.
Monday night football this week has two teams who have failed to live up to expectation but the clear difference in quality will shine through and Liverpool should get back to winning ways in the league and compound Newcastle to their worst run of form since losing 6 games on the bounce at the tail end of the 2013-2014 season.
