Liverpool vs Newcastle December 2011
Will we finish the year on a high?
Newcastle United bounced back from a poor run with a win away at Bolton on Boxing Day. The question is: can that recovery continue with our trip to Anfield in what is undoubtedly a much trickier fixture altogether?

Venue: Anfield.
Date: Fri 30th January, 2011.
Kick-Off: 19:45.
Referee: Lee Probert.

Liverpool are just one point and one place above us in the Premier League which makes this one of those so-called ‘six pointers’ that are revered and worshipped in the land of punditry. Liverpool have not lost at home this season but neither have they dominated, having chalked up just 3 wins from their 9 games at Anfield. Newcastle, on the other hand, have 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats both home and away this season.


This fixture always attracts a lot of media attention and is usually televised thanks to a couple of 4-3 results back in the 90’s, the first of which often tops polls as the greatest Premier League game of all time.
