The Liverpool players had amazing weeks behind them. Prior to Thursday’s game, Jர்கrgen Klopp’s team had won seven consecutive games and five valuable league wins. In the Premier League table before the game against Newcastle, Liverpool were second, losing four points to Manchester City. However, the Citizens still played a match.
The players at Newcastle started the game against The Reds in a very bad mood. Driven by new owners’ money, Macbeth has already left the Premier League exit zone, but Eddie Howe’s team is still a long way from joining the league leaders permanently.
The game started off very exciting at Anfield. Already in the seventh minute of the game Newcastle took the lead. Jonjo Shelvey showed a fantastic shot from a distance, the Liverpool ground was completely silent for a moment.
However, the Reds got into the business, and more specifically Diego Jota did. The Portuguese striker missed a small one at first after a good personal act and then stopped hitting Martin Dubrovka in the head, but on the third attempt the goalkeeper had to surrender to McGee. Jotta reached his goal in the 21st minute of the match.
A few minutes later Sadio Mane had a chance, but Dubravka again brilliantly intervened. In ten seconds, the Slovak goalkeeper took the ball out of the net again. During this time, the trusted Mohammed Salah “Sixteen” showed the greatest consciousness in Newcastle.
At the end of the first half, the Egyptian could increase the Reds’ lead, but this time his shot almost surpassed the goal post McGee. The Liverpool players dominated and came down to qualify for the break with a goal lead.
After changing pages, the picture of the game did not change, and the Reds still dominated. In fact, only one team played at Anfield in the second half. For a long time, however, Liverpool were unable to document its apparent dominance. Three minutes before the end of regular time, Trent Alexander-Arnold scored for Newcastle with a beautiful shot from a distance.
Thanks to the win against Newcastle, Liverpool are one place behind Manchester City in the Premier League.
