Liverpool Vs Newcastle United Premier League Football Match Score 2023

Liverpool are set to be without Ibrahima Konate once again when they travel to Newcastle United on Saturday (17.30 GMT). The centre-back has missed the Reds’ past two games with a hamstring injury. And Konate was not spotted in training yesterday, which means he’s likely to be unavailable.
Chris Sutton has predicted on BBC Sport that the match between Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this weekend will end in a draw.

Newcastle and Liverpool will face each other at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday. Eddie Howe’s side are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 41 points from 22 matches.
Newcastle have drawn their last two Premier League games against Bournemouth away and West Ham United at home. Meanwhile, Liverpool currently find themselves ninth in the standings with 32 points from 21 matches.

Jurgen Klopp’s side won 2-0 against Everton at Anfield in the Merseyside derby on Monday. Former Chelsea striker and BBC Sport pundit Sutton believes that the game between Newcastle and Liverpool will end in a 1-1 draw. Meanwhile, Thiago Alcantara will continue on the treatment table after missing Monday’s 2-0 Merseyside derby victory over Everton. The midfielder has a hip injury, with Jurgen Klopp admitting that Thiago will be out for ‘a while’.

Calvin Ramsay is another who was not spotted at the AXA Training Centre. The Telegraph reported that the right-back, who signed from Aberdeen last summer, has a long-term issue. Indeed, Ramsay has since been forced to have surgery. Ramsay has played just twice for Liverpool, having previously had an ongoing issue flagged up during his medical. The Liverpool manager is previewing Saturday’s Premier League clash with the Magpies by speaking to the media at the AXA Training Centre.

Liverpool’s season, and maybe even their summer transfer plans, could hinge on the outcome of their next two games in the Premier League and Champions League. After months of injuries, inconsistency and off-field uncertainty surrounding ownership, manager Jurgen Klopp and his players have arrived at a decisive stage of their season.

If results go well, it will boost Liverpool’s chances of success and hopes of persuading top target Jude Bellingham to choose Anfield ahead of so many other possible destinations if or, more likely, when the 19-year-old midfielder leaves Borussia Dortmund this summer. But poor results would see the club drift on for the remaining months of season, already out of the FA Cup, with the prospect of no European football in 2023-24 and key transfer targets likely choosing to go elsewhere.

Saturday’s Premier League trip to Newcastle United and Tuesday’s visit of Real Madrid in the Champions League round-of-16 first leg are two huge games for Liverpool. Win them, and a path to saving their season would open up. Lose one, and it would all but end their hopes of success in that competition. But if they lose both, then Liverpool would not only be facing a Champions League exit but also the end of their hopes of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League and qualifying for next season’s competition.

Monday’s 2-0 victory against struggling Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield was ninth-placed Liverpool’s first Premier League win of 2023. That long wait for three points is why Klopp and his players will travel to St James’ Park nine points adrift of Newcastle, who are fourth amid a remarkable season and have reached the Carabao Cup final against Man United.

Klopp’s reaction after the Everton win was telling in that he unloaded weeks of frustration by repeatedly punching the air in front of The Kop as the players left the pitch. It is something he has done plenty of times before, but this time felt different — more relief than celebration.
It’s a meeting of two teams who get the emotions going. And that’s even ignoring the back-to-back 4-3s at Anfield in the mid-1990s and just focusing the games played on Tyneside:

May 2019, Divock Origi’s late winner ensures the title race, that Liverpool had led by as much as seven points at one point, would go down to a final-day decider that Manchester City would eventually claim.

April 2013, The Reds run rampage over the Magpies, winning 6-0 despite Luis Suarez being banned having bitten Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic the previous week. December 2010, Alan Pardew’s first game in charge of Newcastle United ends in a 3-1 triumph with Roy Hodgson removed as Liverpool manager less than a month later. Even August 1998, Ruud Gullit’s unveiling as Newcastle manager completely overshadowed by a Michael Owen hat-trick as the Reds took a 4-1 victory.

From that, it seems like we can book ourselves in for plenty of goals on Saturday, doesn’t it? Well, Newcastle United are winless in their last 12 Premier League meetings against Liverpool. That last victory came when Steve McClaren was at the helm, with a 2-0 home triumph in December 2015. That’s all in the history books though. Right now, Newcastle are soaring.

This will be the first time they’ve faced the Reds while being at least five places above them in the Premier League table since September 2006 (an even that was a very embryonic league table).We are much deeper into the season here with a far greater and deeper understanding of each side’s form and fortunes.
