NEWCASTLE may have millions at their disposal but they remain paupers in terms of Premier League points and it would be a massive surprise if they avoided defeat against red-hot Liverpool at Anfield.

The club's new Saudi owners should start splashing the cash in January in a bid to avoid the nightmare scenario of starting next season in the Championship.

But persuading big names to move to St James' Park will be a hard sell with the Magpies in the midst of a relegation dogfight and showing scant sign of a resurgence.

The high of grinding out their first win of the season at home to Burnley was followed by the low of losing 4-0 at Leicester last weekend, with Slips Tips landing a great 7/1 card bet.

Only goal difference is keeping them above Norwich at the bottom but that could take another a hit at Anfield with Liverpool scoring for fun this season.

The Reds have smashed in 45 goals in just 16 Premier League matches, although they have had to settle for 1-0 wins in their last two league games against Wolves and Aston Villa.

Liverpool are involved in a thrilling title battle with Chelsea and Manchester City so will be going at full throttle against Newcastle's dodgy defence.

How the bookies view it

It's no great surprise to see Liverpool as short as 1/7 and Newcastle as big as 25/1 with SBK given the form of both sides. Even the draw is huge at 19/2.

Recent head to head

Liverpool found Newcastle a tough nut to crack during their dismal title defence and both matches ended level last season, with a 0-0 St James' stalemate followed by a 1-1 draw at Anfield (below).

But the Reds have gone 11 games unbeaten against the Magpies, claiming seven victories, and Newcastle haven't won a league game at Anfield since way back in 1994.

Players to watch

Mo Salah is in such incredible form for Liverpool that he's a best 4/9 with Mansionbet for anytime scorer. That's not great value so I'm going for Sadio Mane (below) instead at 6/5 with SportNation.

Maverick Allan Saint-Maximin is probably the best shout for a Newcastle goal as he could come up with a moment of magic. The French forward is 39/5 with SBK for anytime scorer.

Anything else catch the eye?

The goals have dried up a little for Liverpool of late but they should grab a few against this Newcastle defence.The odds aren't great, though, with over 2.5 Reds strikes just 8/15 at SportNation. The odds increase to 11/8 at Unibet for over 3.5 Liverpool goals but I prefer over 1.5 match goals in the first half at 10/11 with SBK.

Liverpool won 11 corners at home to Villa on Saturday and could rack up a few here. The Reds are 21/20 at -5 in the corner handicap (Bet365) but over 10.5 match corners looks safer at 10/11 with McBookie.

Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson are always worth backing for an assist as Liverpool's full-backs play so high up. The Scot offers better value here at 21/10 with McBookie while Alexander-Arnold is just 23/20.
