Liverpool won against Chelsea on Sunday and will face Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United next month.
Liverpool will take on Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park in the league on May 5.
The Merseyside outfit are two points clear of second-placed and defending champions Manchester City, who have played 33 games.
Liverpool’s final four league games of the season are against Cardiff City (away), Huddersfield Town (home), Newcastle (away) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (home).
Former Liverpool and Newcastle manager Souness believes that the Reds will find it tricky to win against Rafael Benitez’s side at St. James’ Park.
Souness said on Sky Sports Premier League on Sunday evening (7:23pm, April 14, 2019): “The dangerous game for me for Liverpool is the Newcastle one away.”
The Liverpool legend added: “For me, the Newcastle one is a worry. The way Rafa sets up his team up, you can see he is quite happy to sit back, absorb the pressure and try and catch them on the break. Tactically he is very, very good. The support up there will be right up for the game.”
Jurgen Klopp’s half-time message
Meanwhile, Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has revealed what manager Klopp told the players during half time against Chelsea at the weekend.
It was goalless at half time, with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah scoring for Liverpool in the opening minutes of the second period.
The Mirror quotes Henderson as saying when asked what Klopp told the players at half time: “Keep going, keep doing the right things, we need to create better space for each other. Keep creating chances and defend better as a team."
