Liverpool have been one of the stand-out sides so far this season as Jurgen Klopp‘s men look to secure their second Premier League title in 2024.

Meanwhile, Newcastle has failed to build on their remarkable success last campaign, with European football taking its toll on the squad.

Eddie Howe’s injury-riddled side has only picked up three points from their last five games as the Toon drop further away from the top four places.

The Magpies’ record at Anfield doesn’t make for good reading for Newcastle fans as the North East outfit have failed to win any of their past 27 Premier League visits (D5 L22).
