Michael Owen predicts Liverpool v Newcastle United

Michael Owen looks ahead to tonight’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Newcastle United.

Michael Owen has predicted in his Betvictor.com column that Liverpool will win against Newcastle United at home in the Premier League tonight.

The former Liverpool striker expects the Reds to pick up all three points at Anfield and maintain their slim chances of finishing in the top four.

“Liverpool can welcome back Emre Can after missing the 6th Round FA Cup Tie at Ewood Park midweek and I fully expect them to beat a Newcastle side who have conceded at least once in their last 19 PL games at Anfield,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

Could Michael Owen’s prediction come true?

Liverpool have not played well in recent weeks and look likely to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The Reds have lost their last two Premier League matches - 2-1 at home to Manchester United and 4-1 away to Arsenal - but victory over Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Wednesday will have boosted the players’ confidence.

Playing at home will give Brendan Rodgers’s side an advantage, and they should be able to pick up all three points.

Newcastle are severely out of form at the moment and are also struggling for good performance, and one should not be surprised if they lose yet again tonight.
