Newcastle Vs Liverpool Head to Head: The SportsRush brings you the head to head statistics between Newcastle United and Liverpool.
Newcastle will invite Liverpool to St. James Park in a late Saturday night kick off in what might promise to a title decider. The visitors cannot afford to drop points as they play catch-up to Manchester City for the league title.
Liverpool suffered a massive 3-0 defeat to Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League Semifinals, but Jurgen Klopp has said that the whole squad is solely concentrating on the next challenge against Newcastle United. The Reds were arguably the better side of the two on Wednesday night, but the lack of cutting edge in the final third proved costly. They will be hoping to rectify that problem against Rafa Benitez’s side.
Newcastle United were fighting to avoid relegation in the first half of the league, but they have turned it around post-Christmas. The Magpies are fifth in the form table since New Year and look to carry that form and spoil Liverpool’s mentality totally. Rafa Benitez has said that he only make the world tough against his old side on Saturday.
We shall look at the head-to-head statistics between these two sides.

Newcastle United have looked dominant since the turn of the calendar year. The Magpies have won two out of their last five games, but they have the capability to hurt any side having already beat Manchester City earlier this January.

RB: “I was clear in (last week’s) interviews – we are professional and have to do our job. My relationship with the city of Liverpool, the club and the fans is there. At the same time, I have been to play Liverpool with Chelsea, with Newcastle, and we have to do our job.” #NUFC pic.twitter.com/kyJUwvKR8z
