Rafa Benitez hoping to give his former side some more Magpie misery

Of the 41 fixtures between two sides to have been played 40 or more times in the Premier League era, Newcastle against Liverpool has seen the most goals per game on average: 138 goals in 44 games with 3.14 on average.

Jamie Carragher hailed Philippe Coutinho's wonder goal in Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Sunday evening.

However, the Magpies leveled matters just before the break when Joel Matip's attempted clearance deflected off Joselu and sailed into the net.

"Klopp has been picking his best team, Daniel Sturridge is not in it".

Ahead of today's visit to St James's Park by his former club, Benitez said that he would have been happy to spend the remainder of his career at Anfield after leading Liverpool to their fifth European Champions title in 2005.

"I am disappointed, frustrated, whatever you want".

Despite creating plenty of chances, Klopp has seen his side find the net just seven times in six outings since the last worldwide break.

We are going for more than 2.5 goals in the game, and our prediction is available at its best odds of ¾ at betfair. We talk about how to create more.

Eventually the reds settled into a more sustained period of possession and should have gone one up when Wijnaldum saw a flick from a corner bounce back off the inside of the post.

Scoring brilliantly, conceding brainlessly and responding meekly has been the overarching story of the Liverpool season thus far.

Carragher was speaking on Sky Sports, and said: "They haven't got one (a finishing touch) in the squad right now, well the team that plays week in, week out". That doesn't feel too fair.

Defensively the Reds were once again woeful, with Newcastle's goal coming from a simple ball straight through the middle of their defence.

And Jurgen Klopp's visitors ultimately had to settle for a point - meaning they have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions.

How about we say it all together now?

The 1-1 draw on Sunday sees the Reds drop to seventh in the Premier League table.
