"Finally clicked" - Paul Merson's prediction for Liverpool's clash against Newcastle

Pundit Paul Merson has given his prediction for Liverpool's upcoming Premier League clash against Newcastle United.

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.

He wrote on SportsKeeda: “Newcastle United have started the season well and scored a stunning last-minute winner through Allan Saint-Maximin to salvage a point against Wolves last weekend.

“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.”

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.
