The defence if Liverpool has been the one with a major improvement, conceding just 5 goals in 8 games, and concede just 2 goals once against Crystal Palace. Liverpool showed a marked improved performance in the Capital One Cup with a lot of attacking freedom, going 1-0 down inside a minute; to thrash a full strength Southampton team by a score of 6-1.
Newcastle are in the doldrums of the Premier League, sitting in the relegation zone with just 2 victories all season, that too against teams that are closer to them in form in Norwich and Bournemouth. They have lost to poor sides like Sunderland, Watford and the good teams like Man City, Arsenal, Leicester, Crystal Palace this season. The Newcastle defence has been the major cause for problems in recent weeks. They do not have one quality defender that would claim a spot in any of the top Premier League teams; and that has been the biggest cause force concern.
Up front they have some decent talent in Wjnaldum, Perez, Mitrovic and Cisse; but having a good attacking talent will not help them win Premier League games, if they are going to concede a lot of goals for fun. McClaren claimed that the last 2 weeks were the most embarrassing losses they have faced all season, and rightful so, after conceding 8 goals for the return of one against Palace and Leicester.
Liverpool will be smelling the Newcastle blood, and will be going all out for victory in this clash on Sunday.
