Liverpool to beat Newcastle 3-0 is 7/1 with Paddy Power.

Liverpool’s attack is up there with the best in the world and the Reds seem guaranteed goals in almost every game that they play.

This weekend they face a Newcastle side who have conceded 38 goals already this season.

The Magpies surrendered a 2-goal lead away at Bournemouth last weekend and they have not been ruthless enough this season.

Liverpool have been in phenomenal form in recent weeks and would be top of the table had the league started at the halfway point.

Liverpool vs Newcastle match preview

Liverpool have scored 18 goals in their last 6 matches. Their attacking trio of Momahed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been terrific this season and particularly in 2018.

The talented trio have scored a combined 66 goals this campaign. In fact only one of Liverpool’s last 21 goals wasn’t scored by one of these three players: Emre Can vs Huddersfield.

Newcastle are undefeated in their last 4 league matches. Rafa Benitez’s team have drawn 3 and won one of their last few games. That win came against Manchester United which proves Newcastle have what it takes to beat the best sides in the league.

Last time out, Newcastle and Liverpool shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park.

The Reds had 17 shots that day and 68% possession but Newcastle still – somehow – managed to hold Klopp’s team to a draw.

Liverpool are yet to lose at Anfield this season. Newcastle are unlikely to change that this weekend.
