We end week three with probably the best Premier League fixture of the lot as Newcastle host Liverpool and some older fans will remember the classic 4-3 encounters these two sides played out in the 90’s.

The match betting ahead of this game sees Newcastle as the favourites at 5/4, with the draw 5/2, with Liverpool 2/1.

However, the Reds won this fixture 2-0 away last season and also took 6 points off the Toon last term.

In fact, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 13 vs Newcastle and have won 9 of their last 11.

You could play this stat in the ‘double chance’ market with Liverpool/Draw at 8/13.

The Reds have also scored 2+ goals in 8 of their last 11 against the Magpies, which is on the table in this game at Evs.

Other key Newcastle v Liverpool head-to-head stats have seen 4 of the last 6 go Under 2.5 Goals, while both teams have scored in 8 of the last 13.

You can back both teams to score @ 2/5 or Under 2.5 Goals @ 13/8.

We also saw a RED CARD in this repeat fixture last season when Nick Pope was sent off for Newcastle.

In terms of the scorers to look out for – Liverpool’s Mo Salah has enjoyed playing against Newcastle in recent years.

The Egyptian has scored in 6 of the last 11 head-to-heads so will be popular in the scoring markets again, while in this repeat fixture Nunez and Gakpo netted for Liverpool in their easy 2-0 win.

The last player to score for Newcastle was Alexander Isak in their 2-1 defeat at Anfield last season.

Overall, it looks a fascinating match-up that really could go either way. We’ve had 2 draws in the last 6 meetings to this might be popular too.

However, with each side having plenty of firepower then both teams to score @ 2/5 looks a safe bet here but is a tad short.

Therefore, in a game that Liverpool don’t often lose the 8/13 on backing them in the ‘double chance’ market with Liverpool/Draw looks the slightly better value.

BEST BET: LIVERPOOL/DRAW ‘DOUBLE CHANCE’ @3/4
