Well, Liverpool go into this home match one place and eight points behind 6th placed Newcastle in the Premier League. It has been a terrible run of form for Kenny Dalglish’s men, who have lost five of their last six league matches. It has been a hugely disappointing 2012 so far from Liverpool in the league. They had cup success in the Carling Cup and are in the FA Cup semi finals, but if those events had not have happened, then Kenny Dalglish may well be out of a job. Liverpool have not lost their last two league games, and both of them were against relegation candidates QPR and Wigan. Hugely disappointing results for Liverpool, who the boss thinks are just looking tired because of their cup exploits. Liverpool’s home form has not been great, as they have only won one of their last five games. So the Kop really hasn’t had anything to cheer about expect a win over rivals Everton. Ironically, just when Liverpool have started finding a few goals (six in their last three) the defence, which has generally been pretty tight all season has let them down. Another home defeat on Sunday would leave them eleven points out of sixth place and their challenge for a top six finish over.

Liverpool do miss Charlie Adam for this one, but there will of course be a big focus on Andy Carroll. The former Magpies striker faces Newcastle at St James’ Park for the first time since he moved to Liverpool. Carroll has netted just 8 in 47 games for Liverpool, a poor record for an expensive striker who looks totally out of place with the Reds. He is at 7/1 with Paddy Power to haunt his former club by opening the scoring though. In contrast, Newcastle have found gems in Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse up front. Cisse has netted three in his last two league games for Newcastle, so worth a shout in the First Goalscorer market with the Paddy Power promotion above. It has been a great effort from Alan Pardew’s men this season, having broken 50 pints already this season and if they take three points off Liverpool, they should guarantee themselves a top six finish. The Magpies have netted back to back wins, and have lost just once in their last five league games. The second half of the season has seen Newcastle struggle on the road, and they have lost four of their last six away games. They did turn the corner with a strong display at West Brom in their last match and out of the two sides, they will be the more confident of the two in this race for sixth.
