Our in-form tipster Jones Knows has got you covered for the upcoming football feast as he offers his insight across another exciting Premier League fixture list.
Eddie Howe admitted Newcastle will have to be “near perfect” to leave Anfield with a result. Back-to-back defeats to Luton and Nottingham Forest has left the Toon in a sticky spot and Howe has called for a reaction. Reading between the lines, there’s a sense that Newcastle will be going back to basics in attempt to stifle Jurgen Klopp’s side. Perhaps in the style that Manchester United resorted to? Low block and try to hit on the counter.
If that’s the case then Liverpool’s corner count could be the value with Newcastle happy to force them down the channels. Against similar tactics at home against Everton, Manchester United and West Ham, Liverpool won 12 corners in all three games. That is a 12/1 shot with Sky Bet to happen again with the 10 or more corner line at 7/2 also likely to be a runner.
In a world where the likes of Roberto De Zerbi receive rave reviews for their attack-minded and exciting brand of football, David Moyes is showing that being able to win playing a pragmatic style still has a place in the modern game.
West Ham aren’t going to win any entertainment awards but their ability to soak up pressure and create big moments in attack with their talented individuals is proving to be a pain in the backside for teams, like Brighton, who want to open the game up. I think that tactic can work again, like it did in the reverse fixture where West Ham countered their way to a 3-1 win at the Amex in August.

I can’t quite trust them though at the prices with just 7/5 with Sky Bet available on a home win so an under goals play is the desired method of attack in the hope West Ham will turn this into a scrappy affair. The ‘no’ in the both teams to score market does stand out at 6/4 with Sky Bet considering it’s a bet that would’ve landed in five of West Ham’s last six matches.
