Michael Owen calls Liverpool v Newcastle United
Michael Owen has been speaking about the membership he experienced most success with by strategy of trophies AND the membership he banked the most money from.
It used to be FA Cup, League Cup (twice), UEFA Cup, UEFA Wide Cup and Charity Defend with Liverpool.
When in contrast with £110,000 a week for four years at Newcastle United.
I ponder which piece of his profession that Michael Owen looks to be like assist on most fondly…?
Reality of the day completely is that Michael Owen’s very final Premier League look for Liverpool used to be in opposition to Newcastle. The 15 Would possibly well perhaps even simply 2004 seen Owen produce the scousers a 1-1 intention at Anfield, cancelling out a Shola Ameobi purpose.
That season Liverpool and Michael Owen disadvantaged Sir Bobby Robson of a third top four enact in a row, the scousers fourth and Newcastle ‘ultimate’ fifth.
Having scored hundreds of aims in opposition to Newcastle, it used to be a uncommon myth when Michael Owen arrived at St James Park in 2005, no longer scoring a single purpose in opposition to Liverpool in his four years.
Talking about Saturday’s upcoming match at Anfield, Michael Owen predicts double disappointment for Steve Bruce and his NUFC team, all three factors to Liverpool and Newcastle failing even to receive in a 2-0 victory for the home aspect.
You may well well no longer continuously notify that wasn’t par for the route, as within the Premier League period Newcastle United gained on their first talk over with to Anfield with aims from Have Lee and Andy Cole, but since then it has been the very worst away fable for NUFC than in opposition to any assorted team.
Newcastle United at Anfield in Premier League games reads: Played 25 Won 1 Drawn 4 Misplaced 20 Targets For 19 Targets Against 61.
Having scored eight aims in their first four Premier League visits to Anfield, Newcastle hold ultimate 11 within the final 21 PL trips to the red half of Merseyside.
As Michael Owen factors out, at the same time as Newcastle hold managed to bewitch their final two Premier League games, their timing would possibly well well simply appropriate be a tiny late in visiting Anfield.
Sooner than beating Aston Villa 2-1 on the 10 April at Anfield, Liverpool had very very bizarrely lost six PL games in a row at home and scored ultimate one purpose.
It is rather phenomenal, especially would possibly well well hold to you compare that to selecting up 97 factors and scoring 89 aims within the 2018/19 PL season, then in 2019/20 it used to be 99 factors and 85 aims.
These contemporary six home defeats in a row incorporated losses to Fulham, Brighton and Burnley, all three without Liverpool scoring a purpose.
To hold any chance the least bit of qualifying for the Champions League, seventh situation Liverpool must beat Newcastle on Saturday.
On Monday night, Liverpool outplayed Leeds within the first half and went in 1-0 up, ultimate for the home aspect to get stronger as the game went on and receive a 87th minute equaliser. Sooner than that even supposing, Jurgen Klopp’s team had gained three PL games in a row in opposition to Wolves, Arsenal and Villa, scoring six and ultimate conceding one, taking a sight a tiny bit extra admire the team that ultimate lost four of seventy six PL suits within the outdated two seasons.
It be well-known to return to January 2009 for the final time Steve Bruce managed a team to three Premier League wins in a row, I'm able to’t sight him breaking that horrendous and embarrassing fable on Saturday, BUT if Bruce allows his team to get on the front foot and receive a purpose (or two), I be pleased Newcastle would possibly well well likely reach away with a level.
A intention isn't any glorious to Liverpool in their situation so quiz them to transfer all out for the bewitch and expectantly assist create it an open sport.
Michael Owen chatting with BetVictor:
“Despite an early exit from the UEFA Champions League, Liverpool hold picked up in contemporary weeks.
“They'll had been dissatisfied to hold ultimate taken a level in opposition to Leeds in their final match, however, total, the Reds’ performances had been significantly better than they had been initially of the twelve months.
“Newcastle hold performed properly to get themselves in a glorious situation on the bottom dwell of the desk, losing ultimate as soon as in their final seven suits.
“That’s glorious invent in anybody’s e book even supposing I produce feel, at Anfield, the Geordies would possibly well well simply reach up appropriate brief in opposition to Liverpool aspect that are chasing a top four enact.”
“Predictions: Liverpool to bewitch to nil / Liverpool v Newcastle United 2-0.”
