Liverpool to Extend Excellent Record against Newcastle
A first-half strike from Gundogan saw Newcastle trail at half time away at Manchester City last time out. The hosts scored again in the second forty-five through Torres to make sure of the points, condemning the Magpies to a third straight away defeat in all competitions.
Liverpool were held to a disappointing draw in their own backyard by West Brom and will be determined to return to winning ways on Wednesday. Mane scored early on and Liverpool looked like they would go on to secure all 3pts with relative ease. However, Sam Allardyce's side held firm and remained in the game throughout, managing to pinch a point thanks to a late equaliser from Ajayi.
Newcastle have suffered three defeats in their last six matches in league and cup, which includes getting knocked out of the League Cup by Championship side, Brentford. The Toon Army ar without a win in their last four fixtures and won't be looking forward to a home game against the current Premier League champions.
Liverpool are the form favourites for this game despite only winning three of their last six fixtures. The Reds haven't lost any of their last eight matches in all competitions, despite all those injuries, and history is expected to repeat itself when Liverpool travel to the North East.

Liverpool are looking to make it six straight wins against Newcastle on Wednesday and will be aming to extend their run of scoring at least 3-goals against Newcastle to five matches.

Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka remains sidelined until the new year, while Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles aren't expected to return in time to feature.
