Betting Tip: Liverpool -2.00 @ 4/1 with ladbrokes

There’s been a continuing plunge on Liverpool to win this season’s Premier League title, with a 6-1 win at Southampton on Wednesday seeing the Reds cut to double figures.

Never mind that this was a Capital One Cup clash, punters were convinced that another away masterclass illustrated that Liverpool might not only be challenging for the top four spots this term.

Sunday’s match at St James’ Park could be one-way traffic although football is a strange old game and perhaps this won’t be the walk in the park that everyone is expecting.

OK, so it’s hard to make a case for Newcastle considering they were trounced 3-0 at home to Leicester in their last home game before a 5-1 reverse against a Crystal Palace side who had previously been nullified at home to Sunderland.

Things are looking ominous for Steve McClaren who seems at a loss to arrest this slump in form which has been ongoing since the season began, with just a sprinkling of bright moments including a 6-2 win against Norwich.

That victory is looking increasingly freakish as it dawns on the Toon Army that McClaren is a complete phony of a football manager who is happy to continue serving up the sound bites of working hard and sticking together while just waiting for a hefty compensation package for leaving this club.

As for Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp has selection dilemmas after Divock Origi’s hat-trick against the Saints, with Daniel Sturridge set to operate in attack for the Reds and Philippe Coutinho on his way back after sustaining an injury.

They are nice problems to have and perhaps the biggest danger is complacency amidst this squad buzzing with confidence. Jordon Ibe will be chomping at the bit to also get some game time, while Jordan Henderson is surely going to be starting games soon.

It all points to a Liverpool victory with ease and we’re happy to get with them on the handicap market.
