Newcastle United vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will be looking to put the disappointment of the draw with West Brom behind them when they travel to face Newcastle United on Sunday.

Newcastle United never really threatened Manchester City last weekend, losing 2-0 at the Etihad, however it should have been more.

Goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres secured an easy win for the hosts.

Liverpool were poor in their 1-1 home draw with a struggling West Brom side, failing to build on Sadio Mane’s early opener.

Semi Ajayi equalised for the visitors late on, despite the fact they barely had 20% possession at Anfield.
