Newcastle News and Form
Newcastle played out a draw with Brighton last weekend. That moved them on to a three-match unbeaten streak of league form. Their overall home form this season is W8 D1 L9 and it has been a very good second half of the season from them at St James’ Park. Newcastle have won six of their last seven league home games now, the one exception in that sequence being a reverse against Crystal Palace. So they have home form but will it be enough to trouble Liverpool? Newcastle are W1 L6 at home against teams in the top eight this season.
The one win in that sequence was their 2-1 success over Man City. That’s a warning to Liverpool if ever they needed one. Newcastle have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last seven home games as well. They have guaranteed Premier League football for themselves next season so aren’t actually playing for anything. Newcastle have both scored and conceded 22 home goals this season. They have only opened the scoring in six home games this season and it is going to be fascinating to see what they are going to come up with in this one.
