Premier League table toppers are up against Newcastle United on the Boxing Day at Anfield. The Reds are four points clear at the head of the points tally and would be looking to consolidate their position. With 48 points from 18 games this season, this is the best start to Liverpool’s Premier League up to Christmas. It would not be an easy stroll for the Reds against the Magpies as their former manager Rafa Benitez has been working wonders to lift Newcastle from the relegation zone.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, are sitting at 15th position in the Premier League standings, five points adrift of the relegation zone. The likes of Martin Dubravka, Rondon and Fernandez have put on strong performances for the Magpies, although they have to play out of their skins to challenge in-form Liverpool.
