Can Newcastle Beat Liverpool On Saturday?

8:12 am, Thursday, April 21st, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

It’s going to be tough on Saturday at Liverpool with The Reds bang in form having demolished Everton 4-0 at Anfield in the derby game last night.

Liverpool were helped by Funes Mor being sent off early in the second half, but they also suffered an injury blow when striker Divock Origi was stretchered off with an ankle injury.

It’s now very similar to the game against Manchester City on Tuesday night – with Newcastle playing a top team at the top of their game – but this time it’s an away game.

The last time we played away we were humiliated at Southampton, so Newcastle must bury their away day blues if we are to get anything out of this game.

But our lads did great on Tuesday night and they have to play with the same spirit, determination and passion on Saturday against Liverpool.

If they do that then anything is possible.

    Liverpool have looked great going forward, but their weakness is the two full backs and thier centre mid dept is lightweight. They’re great going forward but not so good when being asked to tackle. If we can get Townsend at Clyne and I’d consider having someone with pace against Moreno. Aarons if his confidence has recovered after that tufty-headed smog monster played the young lad at left back with disastrous consequences.Maybe Sissoko if he shows the improvement in effort he has in the last game. I like how Rafa left Townsend switch sides from time to time, as a defender it makes things difficult for you if you have to keep thinking on the fly if the player you’re up against is going to cut inside or take you down the line.

    I don’t think Rafa is pinning any hopes on getting anything at Anfield.

    The season before last WBA stayed up relatively comfortably with 36 points (they could have stayed up with 34 ) and last season Villa would have stayed up with 36 points.

    There’s a strong possibility that wins against Palace and Villa will be enough for us.

    I think we could see Klopp rest key players for the Villarreal game next Thursday as that is their only real route into the Champions League.

    We may see a similar line up to what he put out against Bournemouth with likes of Ward, Randall, Smith, Stewart, Ojo, Allen and Ibe playing and with Lucas CB with Kolo. However, with Origi being injured now, I can’t see a scenario whereby he risks Sturridge given his injury record. This means we are likely to see Benteke up front.

    I suppose what I am trying to say is what I said before the City game…… They are rightly the favourites, but despite their recent good form, we could be playing them at an opportune moment.

    I think we have to take something from the game to stand any chance of staying up. Norwich and Sunderland WILL take points of likes of Watford and Everton, which translates in to us needing to beat one of the big boys and I think Liverpool is our best hope.

    The good thing is at least we are still in the game, the bad thing is i’ll be 10x more crushed now if we do go down having seen what Rafa can do.
