Newcastle vs Liverpool 1 Oct 2017: EPL Cup Preview and Predictions”

Liverpool and Newcastle games have always peaked my interest - typically the Reds and the Magpies often provide some great entertainment for the neutral fan and usually deliver three points to Liverpool.

Normally the global break is an unwelcome arrival - but this time it might be just the thing the reds need. "So far it hasn't led to the results that we want, but in a few moments you can not create bigger chances".

A fortuitous Joselu goal earned Newcastle United a point at home after Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for Liverpool with a spectacular strike from range.

The two goals were produced in the first half of the game.

"We scored goals from much more hard situations than the ones we've missed so far".

"He is not training with the team and we didn't change our position on that. In the end it is unlucky".

Benitez backed Klopp to emulate his trophy-winning spell at Liverpool as the Newcastle manager prepares to face the club which helped to forge his reputation. "It will be like this until we score". That, of course, is a problem but it will not stay like this. But I know how it works and I have to accept it.

"There are different ways to get one win in seven". It will be emotional, because I spent so many years there, and have so many good memories. We have such an outstanding array of attacking talent, we create plenty of chances, have tonnes of efforts on goat but we simply aren't clinical enough and haven't got a potent goalscorer.

Not that he agrees confidence has been dented.

"I didn't see more chances for Newcastle". "It is our duty to be confident because the boys have the quality".

Revenge proved to be sweet as Liverpool beat the Foxes in the Premier League, but couldn't carry that form into the Champions League and only drew 1-1 with Spartak Moscow. They know that and they will do that next time.

"If other teams maybe aren't doing too well, you can be there".

"I think we did a lot better stopping them running, but we needed to do a little bit better on the ball".
