Newcastle v Liverpool

Saturday, 12:30pm, Live on BT Sport 1

Every game now is huge for both Liverpool and Man City. Liverpool have been brilliant in recent weeks and it doesn’t matter who they play or what changes Jurgen Klopp makes, they always have enough to win the game.

Newcastle are having their own resurgence and their home form is solid but I can’t see them giving Liverpool too many problems. It could be a tight game but Liverpool will edge it.

If Newcastle attack Liverpool, it could be 3-0 or 4-0 to Klopp’s side. The only way to play against them is to sit back and absorb the pressure and try and hit them on the counterattack.

Mo Salah to Score Anytime is usually the banker because he plays every game. Sadio Mane is in fine form and playing through the middle, however, Diogo Jota could come in for this one with Liverpool keeping one eye on the Champions League next week, and he should get an effort or two on target.

It could be a good outside bet to back Jota to Score Anytime too. He’s a top player and he’ll be champing at the bit to shine in this final stage of the season.#

In terms of getting an assist, you can never look past Trent Alexander-Arnold but I also like the look of Luis Diaz, Thiago and Bruno Guimaraes. Liverpool’s midfield have been brilliant and they don’t always get the praise they deserve. If I had to pick, I’d go with Alexander-Arnold for an Anytime Assist in my Bet Builder.

As for bookings, any one of Newcastle’s defenders could get a yellow card If any of the Liverpool front three go past them, they will have to pull them down. Matt Targett will be up against Salah and Emil Krafth will have to deal with Diaz.

If Jonjo Shelvey starts, he’s a banker for a booking too, but I can see Dan Burn being forced into a reach challenge at some point and going in the referee’s notebook.
