The Magpies will once again play without striker Michael Owen, who went on Wednesday to Germany for treatment of his thigh injury, suffered in England's friendly win in Austria.

 But defense is the weak spot of Newcastle when they meet Liverpool on Saturday - both teams are with 19 goals scored, but Merseysiders are allowing three times less than Newcastle (6-18).

 Another great Premier League game this Saturday is the match between 15th ranked Birmingham and 6th ranked Portsmouth. The visiting Portsmouth are listed as the favorite with odds 13/10 (2.30) at Bet 365, a draw will pay out 23/10 (3.30) and odds on Birmingham are posted at 11/5 (3.20). Portsmouth is coming out of a 0-0 draw with Manchester City and a victory is a must for Pompey on Saturday to keep the cozy spot on the Premiership table. Birmingham lost at home last week to Aston Villa and although early in the season, it's always the right time to move away from relegation. Still, so far this season Portsmouth have won twice as many Premier League matches as Birmingham (6-3) and will likely come out victorious this weekend.
