Michael Owen predicts Newcastle v Liverpool

St James Park

Newcastle United will face Liverpool at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that Liverpool will win against Newcastle United in the Premier League this weekend.

Newcastle will take on the Reds at St. James’ Park on Sunday evening, and the former Liverpool and Manchester United striker believes that the Magpies will lose the encounter.

“Talking of managers under pressure, Steve McClaren will be desperate for a result on Sunday after his side have conceded eight goals in their last two matches,” the former Newcastle striker wrote on Colossusbets.com.

“But I fear it could be further doom and gloom against an in-form Liverpool. My main fancies are 2-0 and 2-1 to the Reds but if Newcastle don’t show up again, then it could be another very long afternoon for the home fans."

Newcastle are struggling for points and for form at the moment, and they are in real danger of getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season.

Steve McClaren’s side are currently second from bottom in the league table with just 10 points from 14 matches.

The Magpies will head into Sunday’s game against Liverpool on the back of a 5-1 defeat to Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park in London.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are in great form and are very much in the running for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The Merseyside outfit are sixth in the standings with 23 points from 14 matches, just four points behind fourth-place Arsenal.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will head into Sunday evening’s match on the back of a 6-1 hammering of Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.
