Our match prediction:
Liverpool appear to have finally found top form under Jurgen Klopp and while it is too late to mount a serious top 4 bid in the Premier League, the good run will serve them well for the assault on the Europa League trophy and potential Champions League qualification. The Reds have been thoroughly impressive of late, winning last four fixtures in all competitions, probably playing their best football of the season. And having hammered local rivals Everton 4-0 in midweek, they can be trusted to push struggling Newcastle towards the Championship. The Magpies have finally showed some improvement, ending their winless run by defeating Swansea, before doing well to hold in-form Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park. However, this is clearly not the right time to be facing red-hot Liverpool, especially at Anfield, so we have no choice but to predict a comfortable home win.

Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354. Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past. David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club.
