Liverpool will look to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they welcome Newcastle United to Anfield for their Matchday five tie on Wednesday night. Liverpool hard a rough start to the new campaign as they went winless in their opening three matches that was highlighted by a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford on Matchday three. The Reds responded well last time out as they outplayed the newly-promoted Bournemouth claiming a 9-0 win at Anfield on Saturday. The victory was their first win of the season and a much needed confidence-booster for Jurgen Klopp’s side who will now hope to string a run of wins together. However they welcome a dangerous opponent to town on Wednesday as Newcastle have already given Manchester City a bloody nose this season with a 3-3 draw at St James’ Park. The Magpies remain unbeaten after four Premier League matches, picking up one victory and three draws in the process. They will be looking to extend that run when they to Anfield, but they will be aware of the reality of visiting the stadium as it is tough to get points off Liverpool at home.
