Match in Focus

12:45 Sa 1Nov BT1

Newcastle v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • The last time this fixture produced a goalless draw was in 1974, 64 meetings ago
Expert verdict
This pair have produced some classics down the years and six of the eight meetings since Newcastle returned to the top flight for 2010-11 have finished with over 2.5 goals. The teams have kept just four Premier League clean sheets between them and Newcastle's recent form suggests they can give Liverpool a decent contest.
