Whether long-suffering Liverpool fans agree with it or not – Liverpool are not the side they once were, and it’s definitely a decent possibility that Newcastle can win for the first time in 18 years in the league at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Newcastle’s top young goalkeeper – Dutch International Tim Krul
Indeed, liverpool lost 3-1 to Swansea at home earlier in the week in the Capital One Cup, and it’s not like they had their second team playing in that game either.
Newcastle these days have some top players who will test any side in the Premier League and they include Demba Ba, Yohan Cabaye and Papiss Cisse to name just three, and we also have the mercurial Ben Arfa who can score one of his fantastic goals at any time in a game.
Tim Krul has returned from his elbow injury and put in two good stints in his first couple of game back, and he said Newcastle are hardly afraid of going to Anfield:
“We can go there with no pressure on us.” “We definitely feel we can get something from the game.” “You only have to look at other teams that have gone there.”
“Liverpool haven’t been on top of their game, so we need to make sure we expose those cracks.” “We have a great team. We’re the same as last season – we don’t fear going to Liverpool these days, definitely not.”
“We’re back in the mix.” “The next four or five fixtures are coming up and we definitely fancy our chances of getting a few points from them.” “The lads put in a proper shift against West Brom.”
“We had spoken about out-working teams in the build-up and we need to do that again at Liverpool.” “The win at West Brom sets us up for the next few weeks.”
After Newcastle’s very lucky win last Sunday against a good-looking West Brom side, we need to play a lot better this Sunday, and after a full week’s training for the first time for a number of weeks, we are very hopeful Newcastle can put in a star performance on Sunday and bring home all three points.
Then we’d really be back in the mix again.
Howay the Lads!!
