Thank you and goodbye

Thank you for tuning into our live coverage of the match tonight. 

My pre-match prediction of 2-0 Liverpool was not that far off.





Join me next time to see if I get it right...

Here are the highlights for tonight's game. An absolutely mental ending. 
22:33a month ago

Klopp confirms Henderson injury

"We have another problem with Hendo. He felt his hamstring. That obviously is not helpful."

Jurgen Klopp to BT Sport

"Perfect moment actually, to win this game. Difficult game, very passionate, disciplined opponent."

"I told the boys at half-time, we looked a bit desperate, didn't play the extra pass. Had to force ourselves to stay calm."

"The best way to win a football game, I don't need it every week but once or twice."

"It's massive. Feels great."

"I'm not 100% sure everyone believed until the end, but they have to." 

22:25a month ago

Exciting times for the Reds

Liverpool have Jota, Nunez and Thiago to come back into this side in the next few weeks. Very interesting times ahead.
22:21a month ago

Eddie Howe post-match

"Painful, really painful. But so proud of the players."

"Alexander looks a really special player. Picked up a dead leg, we had to protect him."

"No gamesmanship. Just tired bodies."

Player of the Match: Harvey Elliott

Alexander Isak can count himself unlucky here. He was the ideal candidate had the game finished 1-1.

However it did not and Elliott dragged Liverpool up the pitch, with intensity and determination. 

Constantly battling to win the ball back, he also had a crucial role in the equaliser.

He goes from strength to strength and it is no wonder that Jurgen Klopp starts him in the Premier League at the age of just 19-years-old.


22:06a month ago

Former Fulham youngsters impress

Harvey Elliott was probably Liverpool's best player tonight. He took the fight to the visitors and pushed Liverpool forward.

Carvalho had a good cameo and the Reds took the three points as a result of his composure in front of goal. 

22:03a month ago

Carvalho speaks to BT Sport

Fabio Carvalho

"I was just there in the right area... and luckily it fell for me."

Liverpool v Newcastle prediction

Liverpool are looking to gather momentum for a title charge, however Newcastle present a tough challenge these days. The loss of Wilson, Guimaraes and Saint-Maximin and maybe Isak is devastating for the Magpies though and Liverpool's attackers have started to find the net. 

Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Newcastle (Salah x2) 

00:13a month ago

Recent meetings between the sides

Liverpool are unbeaten in 26 home league matches against Newcastle since they lost 2-1 in April 1994. (W21, D5). 

Last season, Trent Alexander-Arnold put an emphatic stamp on a 3-1 win at Anfield with a stunning strike and the Reds triumphed 1-0 at St James' Park thanks to a wonderful Naby Keita effort. 


00:08a month ago

Key player for Newcastle

With Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Guimaraes and potentially Isak likely to be absent, Newcastle have a lot of work to do on the attacking front.

However, staying solid at the back against a Liverpool side that scored nine in their last outing is just as important.

Sven Botman is still settling on Tyneside, this might be his hardest task yet though.



His performance against Wolves came in for some criticism with Lee Ryder from Chronicle Live stating that he struggled early in the match, and Liverpool on their day are very fast starters.

They had scored twice in the first six minutes on the weekend, so Botman needs to be on his toes.

00:03a month ago

Key player for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah somehow did not manage to get on the scoresheet in a 9-0 win, leading to many Fantasy Premier League players taking him out of their squads for this game week.

A staggering 519,264 users have transferred him out of their official PL fantasy football teams.

However, that is a big risk, as the Egyptian will be determined to ensure that he is not left behind in the Golden Boot race after an Erling Haaland hat-trick and a Harry Kane brace at the weekend.

Salah has scored two, whilst Tottenham's Kane has four and Man City's Haaland has six already.


He has scored in all five of his Premier League home matches against the Magpies for the Reds.

23:58a month ago

Predicted XI- Newcastle

Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Willock, S Longstaff, Joelinton; Almiron, Wood, Fraser
23:53a month ago

Probable line-up of Newcastle

Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes are all likely to be ruled out of the contest.

The club are sweating on a work permit for new signing Alexander Isak, but he will travel as the deadline is 75 minutes before kick-off.

"I still don't know, I desperately hope so,” was the response of Eddie Howe when asked about the matter.

Jonjo Shelvey and Emil Krafth will also miss out.

23:48a month ago

Predicted XI- Liverpool

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
23:43a month ago

Probable line-up of Liverpool

Darwin Nunez will serve the last match of his suspension for his headbutt on Joachim Andersen.

Harvey Elliott was substituted at half-time in the win over Bournemouth as a precaution and therefore should be able to feature.

Klopp confirmed that the clash will come too soon for Diogo Jota, who will return to training on Thursday.

However, Joel Matip and Curtis Jones are back in training and may be in contention to feature.

Thiago Alcantara is still out but should return in the next few weeks.

Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calvin Ramsay are still absent.
