Liverpool look to extend their unbeaten streak at Anfield when they host Newcastle on Boxing Day. The Reds are top of the table on Christmas for the third time since the 2008-09 season as they opened up a four-point advantage over Manchester City. Ironically, Liverpool have failed to win the title on previous two occasions. Newcastle remain in the bottom half of the table with the threat of relegation still not going away. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Liverpool were able to come up with an impressive 2-0 win over Wolves at the Molineux Stadium. This was the seventh consecutive league victory for the Reds.
Newcastle were unable to capitalise on a potential six-pointer against Fulham at home after only mustering a goalless draw. The Magpies have only picked up one win in the last five matches.
The recent game between Liverpool and Newcastle also took place at Anfield with the Reds getting a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Liverpool.

Newcastle have an extended winless run at Anfield as they have been unable to get any success on this ground since 1994. Along the way, there have been just four stalemates for Newcastle. It is unlikely that the Magpies will get anything against one of the strongest Liverpool team in more than three decades. Liverpool have picked up more points than any other team in the history at this stage of the campaign and Jurgen Klopp’s men are on a confident run. Since the defence has been solid, Liverpool have been able to win games even with the odd goal. Our preview would pick a win for Liverpool.

Newcastle United win odds: 15.00
Correct Score odds
Liverpool have been able to keep three clean sheets in the last four matches across all competitions, but there are signs of trouble at the back with goalkeeper Alisson making too many mistakes in recent matches. Yet, the solidarity given by Virgil van Dijk will help another clean sheet for the Reds, who have been scoring enough at the other end. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Liverpool are not scoring goals with the same ferocity as last season but they have been scoring enough to keep them well ahead of the chasing pack. The Reds have averaged around two goals per match while Newcastle are unlikely to get anything out of this encounter. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah came up with the opening goal against Wolves to take his league tally to 11 goals. Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the scoring charts but with just one goal advantage over Salah, who has come up with the opening goal (8) more than any other player in the league this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Mohamed Salah.
