Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez doesn’t have any plans to do his former club a favour when Liverpool travel to the North East to take on his team.
Benitez and Newcastle United will host Liverpool who are on the hunt for the Premier League title alongside defending champions Manchester City.
There have been suggestions that the former Liverpool manager will do his old team a big favour when they visit St. James’ Park on Saturday evening.
In his pre-match press conference ahead of the game between Newcastle United and Liverpool, the Magpies boss said that he will prepare for the Liverpool game like he does every other game in the Premier League.
Liverpool trail league leaders Manchester City by one point with two games to play in the Premier League this season starting with the Newcastle United game.
The Reds can put a lot of pressure on defending champions Manchester City with a win over Newcastle United though the Merseysiders don’t have a good record against the Magpies.
Liverpool have only won once at Newcastle in their last eleven visits but they have to win on Saturday evening to keep alive their hopes of a first league title in almost three decades.
The Reds will move two points clear of Manchester City with an away win over the Magpies.
