The Reds will face the Magpies at Anfield tomorrow night. Liverpool are coming off a 9-0 home victory over Bournemouth heading into the match.
Newcastle United on the other hand drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium last weekend.
Merson believes that Liverpool will have too much quality for the Magpies come tomorrow night.
“Liverpool, on the other hand, finally clicked after a run of three winless games as they absolutely raced off the blocks to demolish Bournemouth 9-0.
“It was only a matter of time before Liverpool returned to their best and I expect them to build on it with another win.
“Eddie Howe is a good tactician and his teams usually don’t get blown away, so I’m going for a tight 2-0 win for Liverpool.”
🚨 NEW: Newcastle United could be without record signing Alexsander Isak for their trip to Anfield this Wednesday as the forward is yet to receive international clearance. #lfc [liverpool echo]
Anfield Watch Verdict
We completely agree with Merson's prediction. Liverpool looked very good against Bournemouth.
Therefore, the Reds should be full of confidence heading into the clash against Newcastle United.
It was only a matter of time until Liverpool found some good form. There is a reason why they competed for the quadruple last season.
But, we do understand that there is no easy game in the Premier League. So, Jurgen Klopp's team will have to play well if they are to secure the three points against Newcastle United.
