There are a couple of Premier League games scheduled for this evening, to complete this round of the fixture list, but Covid considerations mean the Tottenham clash with Fulham is under doubt.
With this in mind, we’ll concentrate on tonight’s other match, Newcastle against Liverpool at St. James’ Park. The Reds come into this game on the back of a disappointing home draw with West Brom, and will be looking for three points to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Liverpool have been hugely impressive at Anfield this season, but their away form has left much to be desired. They have won just twice from seven away fixtures. On top of this, Joel Matip has become their latest central defender to head to the treatment room. This makes the Reds potentially susceptible to set pieces, as shown by West Brom’s late headed equaliser.
We think Liverpool will win this game, but the value is with the home team. SkyBet is offering 25/1 on Callum Wilson scoring a header, and this looks too big to turn down.
