LIVERPOOL VS NEWCASTLE
| Wednesday, December 26th |
Premier League | Anfield
3PM GMT/10AM EST
Today we welcome back our old friend Rafa Benitez, but there’s little room for sentimentality today. Liverpool face three vital games, starting today, that could see the Reds become clear title favorites as the second half of the season dawns (results pending). Rafa will no doubt set his Newcastle side out to frustrate, but hopefully Liverpool can see their way through in what should be a tight affair.
