Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping to regain the second spot today by beating Newcastle United.
Liverpool are making a huge push to finish top of the rest in the Premier League, with the title all but confirmed for Man City, though finishing second would be deemed as a success. The Reds come into the game in red-hot form, scoring nine goals in the previous two matches and our regulars are really enjoying watching them weekly, though they need to put a stamp on the campaign.
Newcastle themselves are unbeaten in the past four matches, winning one and drawing three, so it’ll be a tough game. Rafa Benitez will be hoping to return to his old club and continue this form, however, Jurgen Klopp’s side are one tough side to stop at the moment.
Klopp may make a few changes today in order to keep his team fresh, and our barman believes that will be key if Klopp wants to finish second in the league, especially with the Champions League in mind.
Our landlord takes a look at TWO fairly inconsistent players that should be dropped for today’s match…
