TODAY'S BEST BET | DECEMBER 16
We’re heading to the EPL for today’s best bet as Liverpool look to keep pace with Man City at the top of the ladder when they play host to struggling Newcastle at Anfield.
Liverpool are flying on a seven-match winning streak in all competitions and have been banging in goals for fun this season in the Premier League, scoring 45 in just 16 games – five better than the next best in Man City, who fired home seven against Leeds earlier this week.
However, it’s at the back where Liverpool are also impressing – and that’s not surprising when you have centre back Virgil Van Dijk, who has never lost a match at Anfield in 55 Premier League games.
Liverpool have won their last five consecutive home matches to nil and we’re expecting that trend to continue when relegation-threatened Newcastle roll into town.
Newcastle are under immense pressure this season following their takeover, which has seen them become (by far) the richest club in sport.
Most of their players realise they are not part of the club’s future and perhaps that has affected the morale around the club, because the Magpies have only won one of their 16 matches so far this season.
Newcastle have the worst defence in the competition – which isn’t a good sign ahead of facing the EPL’s most devastating attack at Anfield.
Liverpool will keep Newcastle from creating too many chances and at the same time, will be pummelling their goal relentlessly.
All signs point to a comfortable Liverpool win on Friday.
- Liverpool are on a seven-match winning streak
