How to watch Liverpool vs Newcastle: Is the Premier League game going ahead?

How to watch Liverpool vs Newcastle in the Premier League? It’s 2nd vs 19th as Newcastle travel to Anfield to play Liverpool. Here’s how to watch the game live and online

The Premier League once again appears to be in peril. We’re not sure whether to worry about everyone travelling to full capacity stadiums, or just enjoy it while we can. Four games have been postponed this week due to Covid breakouts at clubs and more are likely to follow. A suspension of the league or games going back behind closed doors seems depressingly on the cards.

At the time of writing, Newcastle’s visit to play high-flying Liverpool at Anfield is going ahead and it’ll be a great game to enjoy if you’ve just picked up one of the Best TVs for 2021 after Black Friday.

The Reds are seeking a sixth straight win, while Newcastle are eyeing only a second triumph of a disastrous campaign thus far. They sit 19th with only 10 points from 16 games. Recovering from such a start is rare, historically, but the Saudi cash influx means cash reinforcements are probably less than a month away.

Liverpool fans are expecting a big win at home as they seek to bring the gap to Manchester City down to just one point in what promises to be a nip-and-tuck three horse title race.

Here’s how to watch Liverpool vs Newcastle tonight.
