Jurgen Klopp's side are top of the Premier League and our tipster is backing them to ease to another victory at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime

Liverpool are aiming to win their 14th consecutive Premier League match when they welcome Newcastle United to Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds have not dropped points in the competition since a 0-0 draw at rivals Everton in March and are seeking to maintain their 100 per cent record this season by making it five wins from as many games.

Liverpool vs Newcastle latest odds

888Sport make the hosts heavy 1/7 (1.14) favourites to beat Newcastle in front of their own fans for the third time in a row, having claimed a 4-0 win over them in last season’s corresponding fixture.

The Magpies have not won a league game at Anfield since April 1994 and are out at 19/1 (20.0) to break that run here, whilst the draw can be backed at 15/2 (8.50).

Adrian will remain in goal as Alisson continues to recover from a calf injury, with Naby Keita also likely to miss out.

Steve Bruce will not be able to call upon the services of Florian Lejeune, DeAndre Yedlin, Matt Ritchie, Andy Carroll, Allan Saint-Maximin and Dwight Gayle, who are all injured. Sean Longstaff has also been ruled out.

Liverpool vs Newcastle preview

Given the contrasting fortunes of these sides, there is little to suggest that Liverpool will not come away with yet another convincing victory on Saturday.

Liverpool have scored 98 Premier League goals against Newcastle and two more will make them the first team to score 100+ against a single opponent who hasn’t been ever-present in the competition.

The Reds have already scored 12 goals in their four matches this season and 30 across their last nine home league matches, and should have few problems putting the Magpies to the sword.

Liverpool vs Newcastle tips and predictions

888Sport offer 21/20 (2.05) that Liverpool beat the -2 handicap mark on Saturday afternoon, as they did last season when they eased home 4-0.

Klopp’s men are in impressive form and will be determined to keep that run going against a Magpies side that conceded 28 times to top-six sides last season, with 18 of those coming outside of the north-east.
