We’re back with another Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net. Christmas might be over and done with, but the non stop festive football definitely isn’t, so read on to find our expert premier League tips, betting info and predictions for our chosen fixture this week.
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re looking to the North East, where Newcastle host the champions and league leaders Liverpool. We’ve analysed the stats and recent form to bring you our Premier League tips & predictions for this crunch tie here at BettingTips.net.
By all accounts and Premier League predictions, it hasn’t been a bad season thus far for the Magpies, as they sit in 13th place with the top half of the table well within site. However, some fans remain critical of Steve Bruce’s negative tactics and feel it doesn’t fit the ethos of the club. Steve Bruce’s side were dealt a bad hand with the festive schedule as well. Their boxing day outfitting was an away trip to Newcastle, they host champions Liverpool on the 30th for this fixtures followed by Southampton on new years Day.
Few Premier League predictions would’ve foreseen Liverpool dropping points at home to West Brom, but that’s exactly what happened on Sunday afternoon. Sam Allardyce kept up his good record by holding the Reds to a 1-1 draw on their home turf. Liverpool’s attacking trio struggled to break down a stern defence on Sunday, and could expect more of the same on their trip to St. James’ Park on Wednesday. Liverpool are able to field a strong first 11 despite injuries, but are perhaps missing the back up of the likes of Diogo Jota to see them through the jam-packed festive schedule.
Liverpool have won their last 5 games against Newcastle, and are unbeaten in their last 7. The last time the Magpies beat the Reds was in December 2015, which ended in a 2-0 win at St. James’ Park. The second goal was scored by Gini Wijnaldum, now a key player in Liverpool’s all conquering squad. Last season, the Reds beat Newcastle 3-1 in both fixtures. Despite being unbeaten against Newcastle in 7, Liverpool have only managed 2 clean sheets in their last 8 against the Magpies. Sadio Mane has scored 3 in his last 2 games against Newcastle.
Below, we’ve provided you with 3 statistical highlights as well as the results of the last 5 games between Liverpool and Newcastle. We’ve used all of this information and analysed recent form this season in order to bring you this Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today point to an away win for Liverpool on Wednesday night.
Liverpool might have dropped points on Sunday, but doing so again at St. James’ Park looks unlikely. West Brom manager Sam Allardyce actually has a decent record against Liverpool at Anfield and they also managed to draw against Manchester City. And while Newcastle have managed impressive wins over Everton and West Ham this season, none of their results have come a against a traditional top 6 side – unless you count the luck provided by VAR against Everton. Given these facts and recent results, it seems inevitable that Liverpool will comfortably return to winning ways, even against a deep sitting Newcastle side. As you can see from the results listed above, Liverpool have won 4 of their last 5 against the Magpies by 2 or more goals. That’s why our betting tip for today is to back a Liverpool win by 2 goals at odds of 4.33 with Bet365.
