Liverpool are looking for a second win of the 2022/23 English Premier League season when they host Newcastle on Wednesday.
The reds are confident after matching the EPL’s joint-highest record win in a 9-0 humiliation of Bournemouth.
This matched Manchester United’s 9-0 wins against Ipswich in 1995 and Southampton in 2021, as well as Leicester’s thrashing of Southampton in 2019.
Allan Saint-Maximin scored a beautiful goal at the weekend to rescue a point for Newcastle in a 1-1 draw against Wolves.
Jurgen Klopp’s side climbed up to 9th place after the win, two spots behind Newcastle who have also won once this season.
Liverpool beat the Magpies 1-0 at St. James Park last season, which was preceded by a 3-1 home win at Anfield.
