"A dangerous team" - Chris Sutton's prediction for Liverpool's clash against Newcastle

Pundit Chris Sutton has given his prediction for Liverpool's Premier League clash against Newcastle United at Anfield.

The 49-year-old believes that the Magpies could cause the Reds a few issues. However, Sutton further added that he expects Liverpool to secure the three points.

The match will kick-off at 8:00pm BST.

As quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, Sutton told the BBC the following: "We all think Liverpool are back following that big 9-0 win (over Bournemouth at Anfield) but Newcastle are a dangerous team.

"However, they are missing Callum Wilson and there is an injury concern over Allan Saint-Maximin, who would be a massive miss for them.

"There is a possibility we could see their new signing, Alexander Isak start. You know Newcastle will give it a go with how Eddie Howe plays but I think Liverpool will carry on at home and I think they will have too much."

Anfield Watch Verdict

Newcastle United recently signed Isak from Real Sociedad for a transfer fee of £63 million.

The 22-year-old forward is a capable player. Isak scored 44 goals and registered eight assists in 132 appearances for Real Sociedad's first-team.

So, the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold will have to be wary of the Sweden international if he does feature tonight.

But, Liverpool only conceded 26 goals in 38 Premier League fixtures last season. Jurgen Klopp's defence is certainly capable of stopping opposition forwards from scoring.

We wish the team all the best ahead of the fixture. Also, we are backing the Reds to secure a 2-0 victory.
