NEW vs LIV Fantasy Predictions: Newcastle United vs Liverpool Best Fantasy Picks for Premier League 2020-21 Match

NEW vs LIV Fantasy Predictions: Liverpool strive to return to winning ways when they come across languishing
Newcastle United.

Such has been Liverpool’s electric form this season that many have forgotten that this is a club in crisis with its squad. With almost 10 players sitting out of the club across the last couple of months, the club has been extremely paper thin in the ongoing season of the Premier League.

Despite that, Liverpool have continued their dominance over the marquee league. The club’s sits atop of the points tally, a position the club has rightfully nailed down upon with its consistency and flawless brand of football.

While the 1-1 draw to West Brom was a disappointing result for the league leaders, the side will not be massively dismayed. They continue to remain at the helm and with Everton not playing this gameweek, Liverpool will be aiming to further lead at the top with a win today.

Probable Winner

Out scouring for redemption, Liverpool should go onto win this one without any jitters.

NEW vs LIV Fantasy Predictions


Its been extremely hard to find positives in Newcastle United’s ranks this season but Karl Darlow has emerged as a saving grace for the team.


Liverpool might have gone onto ship the one the last time around but today should see them pull off another cleansheet. They are up against an opponent which just can’t score, a side which shouldn’t offer too much of a test to the visitors.

It will see us opt for Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertstown who has the five assists and Fabinho from the club. We have Frederico Fernandez be our pick from the other side owing to the tackles and blocks he’s pulled off.


Sadio Mane’s well taken goal against West Brom took his tally up to the 6 goals and 3 assists for the season to see him feature for us alongside Jordan Henderson.

Newcastle United also see a duo represent us. In Sean Longstaff and Matt Richie, the team has two players who are capable of both doing the dirty and keeping the ball ticking around the park.


Mohamed Salah’s 13 goals and 3 assists see him hold onto his place in our side. 5 goal and 3 assist man Roberto Firmino is his partner for this one.

Captain And Vice-Captain

Liverpool’s top scorer, Salah steps in our as captain while Mane is the vice-captain.

Fantasy Team

Darlow, Andrew, Fabinho, Trent, Frederico, Mane, Jordan, Sean, Matt, Salah, Roberto.
