Opta Stats: Liverpool v Newcastle

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Will Jurgen Klopp be celebrating after Liverpool's match with Newcastle?

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their winning start to the Premier League campaign when they host Newcastle. Opta rates their chances.

"Sadio Mané has played 50 Premier League matches at Anfield without losing – 49 with Liverpool, one with Southampton (W40 D10 L0) - more than any other player has played on a ground without ending on the losing side in Premier League history."

Mane is 1.9520/21 to score.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 23 Premier League home games against Newcastle (W19 D4), scoring in every single one of those matches (58 goals), while keeping 12 clean sheets. They are 1.162/13 to win.

Newcastle were the second side to defeat Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool in the Premier League in December 2015. A Newcastle win is 27.026/1.

Liverpool have scored 98 Premier League goals against Newcastle - they could become the third team to score 100+ against a single opponent in the competition, and first to do so against a side who hasn't been ever-present (Arsenal 107 v Everton, Manchester United 100 v Everton). Over 3.5 goals is 2.111/10.

Only against Manchester United between 1973 and 2012 (29 games) have Newcastle had a longer winless run away from home in the top-flight than their current run of 23 games without a win against Liverpool. The draw is 9.617/2.

Liverpool are looking to become the fourth team to win 14 consecutive English top-flight matches, after Arsenal (14, August 2002), Man City (15, August 2019) and Man City again (18, December 2017). The Reds could become the first team to win 14 in a row while scoring more than one goal each time. Liverpool are 1.574/7 to win half-time/full-time.

Newcastle have won three of their last five Premier League away games (D1 L1), as many as they had in their previous 24 on the road (W3 D9 L12). They last won consecutive games away from home in January 2018. The Magpies are 19.018/1 in the Draw No Bet market.

Liverpool are looking to win their opening five Premier League matches of a season for the second time in as many seasons, having done so in 2018-19 - the only two teams to do so previously in back-to-back seasons are Chelsea (2009-10/2010-11) and Man City (2015-16/2016-17). The Reds are 2.111/10 to win both halves.

Newcastle United have won none of their last 27 away top-flight games against teams starting the day top of the table (W0 D5 L22) since a 1-0 win at Brian Clough's Derby County in April 1972. A Liverpool win and both teams to score is 3.02/1.

Sadio Mané has played 50 Premier League matches at Anfield without losing - 49 with Liverpool, one with Southampton (W40 D10 L0) - more than any other player has played on a ground without ending on the losing side in Premier League history. Mane is 1.9520/21 to score.

Steve Bruce has lost just four of his last 17 Premier League meetings with Liverpool (W5 D8 L4), winning his most recent game against the Reds in April 2015 with Hull City. Newcastle are 6.411/2 in the Double Chance market.
