Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to continue their scoring spree when they lock horns with Rafael Benitez' side

Liverpool welcome Newcastle United to Anfield for their English Premier League encounter on Saturday evening.

The Reds will be heading into this game with lots of confidence following their impressive form lately which saw them dismiss Porto in the first leg round of 16 of the Champions League before thrashing West Ham United three days later.

Jurgen Klopp will again be counting on the imperious form of his forwards – Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane to do the damage against the Magpies as they continue to push for second spot on the log.

Besides, they will be looking to capitalise on home advantage having won five of their last seven duels, losing only one. Therefore, LionsBet is offering (1.22) for them to clinch another victory at Anfield.

Two of their previous meetings ended in stalemates and a chance for another one is quoted at (7.00) with the same betting firm.

Rafael Benitez will be hoping for a result on his return to his former club, knowing his side must be at their best, though he will still be without Islam Slimani who is struggling to get fit since he teamed up with the St James' Park outfit from Leicester City during the January transfer window.

However, their recent form leaves little to cheer about having only managed a win in seven outings. In addition, their record outside their turf is also not encouraging winning just two games in 13 encounters. They are therefore tagged as underdogs for this clash at an offer of (13.00).

Both sides were on target in their last two meetings, as such, odds of (1.90) are up for them to find the back of the net in this duel once again.

Goals will be expected to be at a premium bearing in mind that Liverpool have racked in 16 goals in their previous five outings. The bookmakers have thus quoted (1.40) for three or more goals to surface here.

Sadio Mane has registered four goals in his last two games including his hat-trick against Porto in the Champions League. The Senegal international is odds on at (1.55) to score anytime with LionsBet.
