Newcastle United Vs Liverpool – 12:45pm Saturday on BT Sport
Now this is probably the hardest game to predict this week. Newcastle are on a roll and suddenly Alan Pardew is a decent manager.
Two Premier league back to back wins followed by that Cup win away to Manchester City and lo and behold Newcastle are once more a force. Liverpool still have a long way to go for me. They were lucky mid week in the League Cup to beat Swansea. The referee was good to them and spare me all this talk about Balotelli. One goal and suddenly he is special. Newcastle will hit this game full of confidence and the stadium will be bouncing for the early kick off. I am being torn between two results here. A home win or a draw. I don’t fancy Liverpool winning this one. The form they showed at City was superb. Newcastle looked solid at the back and had great pace up front. Home win.
