The teams with the highest points in 2022 in the English Premier League will face off as Newcastle hosts Liverpool at the famous St. James’ Park on April 30, 17:00 IST. Liverpool need nothing but a victory to remain in the title race, as any slip-up will see them lose ground to Manchester City. A much-improved Newcastle side look set for their highest-placed finish in the league for years, and they will look to deny Liverpool a title-winning chance if they can.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest performance and player availability news from Newcastle and Liverpool:

Newcastle Form and Team News

With only three losses this year, Newcastle have risen from a team threatened by relegation to getting the second-most points in 2022. Much of that success can be attributed to ownership and then a managerial change, with many around St. James’ Park now having the time of their lives when watching their team play.

A run of six wins and two draws was halted by three straight losses to Chelsea, Everton, and Tottenham. Newcastle has since responded to that losing run with four straight victories, scoring seven goals and conceding just one. Callum Wilson, although injured, is still their highest goalscorer with six goals.

For news on injuries and suspensions, Newcastle are still missing Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier, Ryan Fraser, Isaac Hayden, and Jamal Lewis, who are sidelined with injuries.

Liverpool Form and Team News

Jurgen Klopp and his charges are having a stellar season, challenging for three trophies and having won the EFL Cup. After their Champions League outing against Villarreal, they must turn their attention to the league where an inspired Newcastle threaten their unbeaten streak and title ambitions.

Since a narrow loss to Inter in the Champions League, Liverpool have gone ten matches on the bounce without losing, with eight wins and two draws. The exceptional form of Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara, and other key players in the squad has come at the right time as they prepare for the run-in to a historic quadruple-winning season.

Roberto Firmino is the only Liverpool player doubtful to make the trip, as he still has a foot injury.

Tipster’s Angle

Newcastle have failed to win in at least ten of the previous meetings between these two sides, losing six and drawing four. Although Newcastle have played impressive football since the turn of the year, Liverpool are still the only team to amass more points in 2022. Klopp’s men still have their sights fixed on a possible quadruple and will do everything possible to win this fixture. Here are our thoughts on the match:

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.21

Liverpool are in imperious form and have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten matches. Also, from the head-to-head record between the two sides, nine of their last ten meetings have ended in multi-goal results. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.21 odds.

Tip: Liverpool to Win Either Half @ 1.23

The Reds are arguably England’s strongest side and have enough firepower to win matches in the blink of an eye. They are yet to lose in the Premier League in 2022, and we expect them to come out on top in at least one half. Liverpool to win either half is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.23 odds.


Newcastle have improved under new owners and a new coach and are in great form. Whether they will be able to pull a surprise win remains to be seen, but we expect a thrilling encounter at St. James’ Park this weekend.
