Liverpool vs Newcastle LIVE: Premier League result and reaction


Liverpool fans unimpressed with John Henry apology

Liverpool host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. The Reds are chasing down a top-four spot and Champions League qualification after seeing hopes of retaining their league title fade away after a disappointing season.

They finally ended their Anfield hoodoo against Aston Villa a fortnight ago, however, before again dropping points, away at Leeds United, on Monday evening, where Sadio Mane’s goal was cancelled out late by Diego Llorente. It has been a tumultuous week with the launch and subsequent collapse of the now failed European Super League still raw in the minds of supporters. But Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to stay focused on the task at hand and an all-important three points.

Two big wins have eased the relegation fears around Newcastle and the pressure on manager Steve Bruce, with the victory over high-flying West Ham a week ago seeing them move eight points clear of the drop. There remains work to be done, however, with anything away at Anfield a bonus as Bruce looks to secure safety and another year in the top flight.

Despite a fractious week, in which his own relationship with Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group has been tested after being kept in the dark about the proposals, Klopp insists he has not fallen out of love with football.

“Never with the game. Just with the things around. It’s a big one, I felt it the same way, but I cannot constantly talk about it, think about it,” he said in his pre-match press conference. “But I never lost my love for the game. We had so many things going on this year and we always tried to get through.

“I said after the (Leeds) game, if someone asked me ‘What are you missing from this year?’, in terms of what could have happened on top of all the rubbish that happened to you, I would have said ‘The Super League is coming up!’. It was a lot but it had nothing to do with the game. All the things around it? The game stayed the same. It got better and better and better.”

FULL-TIME: LIVERPOOL 1-1 NEWCASTLE

And that’s it! Liverpool completely throw away what would have been a vital victory in the race for the top four. Newcastle get a valuable point thanks to that last-second Willock equaliser, moments after Wilson’s goal had been ruled out. It’s more disappointment in a season of underachievement for the champions, who failed to heed the warning signs here.

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-1 NEWCASTLE (WILLOCK 90+5’)

Incredible! Liverpool thought they’d escaped after that disallowed Wilson goal, but Newcastle’s wont be denied this time. A long ball is flicked into the feet of Willock, who gets the ball out of his feet in the box. His low shot deflects off Fabinho and wrong foots Alisson.

NO GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-0 NEWCASTLE (90+3’)

Heartbreak for Newcastle! Wilson, having been played through on goal, saw his first shot saved by Alisson. The ball bounced up, hit him on the arm, and then he converted the rebound. But the decision, after a VAR check, is handball. Relief for Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL 1-0 NEWCASTLE (90+2’)

Chance! Ritchie creates some space and curls a cross into the box. Willock meets it at the near post but can only flick his header over the bar.

LIVERPOOL 1-0 NEWCASTLE (90+1’)

Murphy sprints to the byline and stands up a cross. Wilson and Willock are waiting in the middle but Fabinho climbs highest. Liverpool deal with the resulting corner, and we’re into the first of four added minutes.

LIVERPOOL 1-0 NEWCASTLE (89’)

Salah makes his way into the box from the right but he’s crowded out by three Newcastle players. Saint-Maximin then races away on the left flank as the visitors break, but he’s cynically taken out by Fabinho. He gets a yellow card.

Ritchie crosses from the left and Robertson does well to head clear under pressure. Liverpool can’t afford any defensive lapses now.

Actually, Almiron has just decided he’s done for the day, so Gayle replaces him.

LIVERPOOL 1-0 NEWCASTLE (84’)

Almiron appears to be struggling with cramp after attempting to race onto a ball over the top. He takes a moment and is soon back on his feet.
