Liverpool under pressure at St James Park?
Newcastle vs Liverpool predictions
For this beautiful poster in Saint James Park, it is Liverpool which will be favored by sports betting with an odds of 1.25. You will have to take risks to win money online football betting.
As the Magpies are in difficulty, it would already be interesting to bet on a victory for Liverpool at half-time, 1 goal to 0, or an odds of 2.35. The Reds are not yet at the top of their game in the Premier League so it would be safer to bet on a 2-0 win, rated at 5.20.
For added security, online bettors can bet on a combination that can offer odds of 2.45, either a Liverpool win, 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0.
In this context, the 3 top scorers of Liverpool are able to find the net, Sadio Mané (6 goals), Roberto Firmino (5 goals) and above all, Mohamed Salah (13 goals).
During the victory at Crystal Palace, 7 goals to 0, on December 19, 2020, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah had scored a double. Japan’s Takumi Minamino started the game and found his way to the net for the first time in his Premier League career. It could still be used because in this “boxing day”, it is also necessary to rotate its workforce.

Latest news from Newcastle
Classified in the second part of the Premier League table, the Newcastle club may still suffer. The Magpies have not won for 3 days, but above all, they were beaten in the League Cup by Brentford, a League Championship formation.
Newcastle’s schedule is not favorable for recovery as Steve Bruce’s men will receive two teams classified on the Premier League podium, Liverpool and Leicester City.
Last week, Newcastle were beaten on Manchester City (0-2), but above all, the Magpies have conceded 8 goals in the last 3 days.
In Saint James Park, Newcastle blew hot and cold with defeats in particular in front of several “top names” of the English Championship, Manchester United (1-4) and FC Chelsea (0-2). Lately, the Magpies have even been hooked by a formation classified in the red zone, Fulham (1-1).
For the reception of the English Champion, Newcastle will still be deprived of Jamal Lascelles, Martin Dubravka and Alan Saint Maximim. Despite the absence of the former Nice, Newcastle was not ridiculous in the offensive sector with in particular 8 goals from Callum Wilson, the former striker for Bournemouth (22 goals in two seasons).
Latest from Liverpool
If Newcastle suffers at the bottom of the table, Liverpool could take the opportunity to consolidate their leadership position. The Reds are not at their best this season, but they still have two points ahead of Manchester United and 3 over Leicester City.
Liverpool must take advantage of Newcastle’s current “weakness”, but Jürgen Klopp’s men are also capable of poor performance, like their “sad” draw at home in front of West Bromwich (19th).
In the English Championship, Liverpool have been unbeaten for 11 days, but the Reds have lost points in front of fairly average teams like Brighton (1-1), Fulham (1-1) and West Bromwich (1-1).
Before facing their runner-up, Liverpool must consolidate their leadership position by taking as many points as possible at Saint James Park in front of Newcastle and at St Mary’s Stadium against Southampton.
This season, far from its bases, Liverpool is 1 defeat, 4 draws, but only two wins, at Chelsea and Crystal Palace. The Reds shone at Stanford Bridge with their 2-0 victory, but they were also hooked on the field of rather weak teams like Brighton (1-1) and Fulham (1-1).
For this trip to Saint James Park, Liverpool will be able to count on its “magic” trio, Sadio Mané / Mohamed Salah / Roberto Firmino, but the staff will be deprived of Virgil Van Dijk, Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara and Jospeh Gomez.
