The festive football continues to come thick and fast. The Tipster is eagerly anticipating Newcastle’s trip to Liverpool – a fixture with plenty of history, and our betting expert is backing Demba Ba to score at Anfield.

Bearing in mind Liverpool’s current plight at home – the Reds have won just one of their last six league matches at Anfield – the Tipster is expecting Kenny Dalglish’s side to struggle against Alan Pardew’s men.

Demba Ba to score at any time against Liverpool – 9/4

Demba Ba has been in excellent form since joining from West Ham during the summer – the Senegal forward has netted 14 goals in 17 league appearances this season. The 26-year-old has history against Friday night’s opposition, too – he scored against Liverpool last season as the Hammers comfortably won 3-1 at Upton Park. So, the Tipster’s opening offering is for Ba to find the net at Anfield at a tempting 9/4.
Bet365 odds

Liverpool and Newcastle both to score – 10/11

The Anfield crowd have witnessed plenty of goals this season – both teams have scored at Liverpool’s ground in seven out of their 10 league matches. Newcastle will make the trip to Merseyside confident they can get a result, and Pardew is likely to field an attacking team as he did at Old Trafford, when the Toon secured a hard-fought point against Manchester United. Liverpool, meanwhile, will be desperate to end the year with a home win, so the Tipster is backing both sides to score at 10/11.

Liverpool and Newcastle to draw – 11/4

Liverpool have struggled to convert their dominance at Anfield into victories and Kenny Dalglish’s side have drawn six of their 10 home matches in the current campaign. Meanwhile, Newcastle have been in impressive form on their travels, losing only twice against Blackburn and Manchester City, while drawing at Old Trafford. The visitors would happily take a point at Anfield to finish off a great year for the Magpies as they look to continue their pursuit for Europa League football next season. So, the game to finish all square looks good value at 11/4.

Maxi Rodríguez to score at any time against Newcastle – 12/5

Maxi Rodríguez has netted 11 goals in his last 12 league starts – an impressive feat – especially considering Kenny Dalglish has used the Argentine midfielder sparingly this season and he is often introduced from the bench. The 30-year-old netted Liverpool’s equaliser against Blackburn on Boxing Day and the former Atletico Madrid attacking midfielder can expect to start against Newcastle – a team he scored against last season.

The long shot: Liverpool to beat Newcastle 3-0 – 10/1

Liverpool boast an impressive record against Newcastle at Anfield – the Reds have not dropped points against the Magpies since 2003. And the last three meetings between the two sides have delivered the same result – the Merseyside outfit have won by three clear goals. So, this edition’s audacious long-range effort is for Liverpool to beat Newcastle 3-0. You heard it here first.
