EPL: Liverpool's visit 'special' for me, Benitez says

Benitez says that the Magpies will need to keep up with Liverpool when they host the Reds at St. James Park on Saturday.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is yet to register a win against the Magpies. Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara will not feature for Newcastle, who could also be without Florian Lejeune. Still my family lives in Liverpool, so it's my home. If Newcastle are to kick on from their good start to the League, they will need to score more goals.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has likened the Liverpool defense as a necessary deficiency with their prolific attack.

Despite conceding 11 goals in six Premier League matches, the Reds do have a pair of clean sheets, coming back-to-back against Crystal Palace and Arsenal.


Lawrenson's damning verdict of the Magpies comes despite the club sitting 12th on the list of top scorers this season, with six, although the former Liverpool man is right in saying they pose a threat from set plays. Whether Benitez begins with either Joselu, Dwight Gayle or Aleksandar Mitrovic, none of them are likely to fill the opposition with dread.

Better value, though, could lie in backing at least four goals to be scored when the Reds hit the road; the selection would have landed comfortably in each of Liverpool's three Premier League away days so far this season and, at 8/5 (2.60), dabblebet's odds-against quote may provide value for punters once again ahead of Sunday's showdown.

It was two Champions League victories for Valencia over Liverpool in the autumn of 2002 - a 2-0 win at the Mestalla and a 1-0 win at Anfield - that caught the eye of Rick Parry, the club's then-chief executive. That is to coach, to improve players and to create a team that is competitive and can win games.

With two goals and two assists in the first three Premiership games this season, it seeme that Firminho's time had eventually come. "I'm not interested in the criticism - it shouldn't have any effect", said Klopp, who has Sadio Mane back from suspension. Daniel Sturridge could replace him in the attack if Klopp decides to bench Firmino, but that remains to be seen.


Philippe Coutinho continues to look the most risky player on the pitch for Liverpool since his recent return to the side and he linked up well with Sadio Mané to score in the 31st minute.

"He will play tomorrow and we will see, but Simon is the No. 1 and that's the situation".

According to WhoScored.com, Adam Lallana, Adam Bogdan and Nathaniel Clyne remain sidelined due to injury for the visitors.
