class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The visitors are clear favourites to claim their 10th Premier League win of the season on Wednesday night but opposing goals could be a wise choice
Liverpool’s final Premier League match of the year sees the champions travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United.
Jurgen Klopp’s men may be in pole position to retain their title, yet anything other than a win on Wednesday evening would be extremely disappointing – especially after the weekend’s 1-1 draw against West Brom at Anfield.
The Magpies, for their part ,have failed to win any of their last four matches in all competitions and have claimed only three victories in their last 11 home league encounters.

Newcastle United vs Liverpool Preview
Klopp’s side may be the top scorers in the Premier League this season but those numbers have been inflated by three big-scoring wins against Crystal Palace, Leeds and Wolves, with those fixtures contributing 15 of their 37 goals.
The champions do possess a tremendous attacking threat, yet away from home they have been strangely wasteful in the final third, their 7-0 riot at Selhurst Park notwithstanding.
Indeed, that eye-catching success in south London is the only time that Liverpool have scored more than two goals on the road this term, with the Anfield outfit netting just once in three of their last four away games.
While the visitors have more than enough to record a victory in the north-east on Wednesday, the statistics show that opposing a high-scoring win for them could be of interest.
Newcastlate United vs Liverpool Tips And Predictions
Liverpool to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is available at 5/4 (2.20) and seems an intelligent way of getting the visitors onside.
Nine of the Reds’ last 11 matches in all competitions have seen fewer than four goals, as have each of Newcastle’s last four home matches.
