Newcastle United will be looking to get back to winning ways after suffering a hard fought defeat against the defending champions, Manchester City.

Their performance on the first Matchweek of the Premier League against Aston Villa showed their true potential and the defeat in the previous match was just deemed as a small obstacle along the way.

In their tie against Liverpool, they will hope to keep things tight in the midfield and try to play more on the wings which would make things difficult for the Liverpool fullbacks who likes to go up front.

Liverpool on the hand, have definitely learnt a lot about their strengths in their 3-1 win against Bournemouth. They played good attacking football in the match and took control of the game after the opening few minutes.

But Jurgen Klopp's side is still conceding a lot of goals from open play and when they visit Newcastle, they will have to take care of it, because the Magpies are great in finding open spaces and exposing the defensive incapablity of the team.
