Liverpool enjoyed a fabulous season across competitions, but they may still likely end it without any trophy. The Reds are one point shy of leaders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League standings with just two games left to play. They also fell 3-0 away at Barcelona on Wednesday evening in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final at Camp Nou.
No league defeat in three matches (W2, D1) has seen Newcastle secure their Premier League (PL) status for another season. In truth, their survival turned out to be much more comfortable than expected thanks to their fine home form.
Newcastle have won each of their last four home league matches in the month of May, scoring 13 goals and conceding just once. However, their home form this season suggests a clean sheet may be tough to obtain – they have conceded in 13 of their 18 PL home matches so far.
