Newcastle has really hit form collecting six points from their last two games. Their form line now reads Won 2, Drawn 4, Lost 3, Scored 10 and Conceded 15. At home Newcastle have lost only the once against Man City, with two draws and one victory. It seems Alan Pardew’s men have certainly rediscovered their confidence, going behind against Spurs before hitting two second half goals to seal the victory. In that game Newcastle scored both goals from two shots on target and that really underlines what their shooting accuracy is like.
At home they have had a total of 17 shots on target and scored 6 goals, that’s a goal every 2.8 shots. If you ignore their opening day defeat against Man City they average 5.66 shots on target per home game. Therefore the average should be two goals a game and that stat seems to hold up well as they have scored six home goals this season.
Liverpool’s form line reads Won 4, Drawn 2, Lost 3, Scored 13 and Conceded 12. It seems Liverpool have hit a little bit of a lull. After that last second fortunate win against QPR and defeat against Real Madrid, they then had a disappointing home 0-0 draw with Hull. That said, they till sit eighth in the league with 14 points, and only three points off 3rd place. Mario Balotelli has only been credited with one assist in his whole Premier League career, the pass to Aguero when City won the title. Although under pressure that stat can’t last so I’m backing him for a goal assist against Newcastle. On the road, Liverpool has already scored eight goals in four games. With Newcastle averaging two goals a game at home and Liverpool averaging two goals away from home an exciting match is in store.
