Video: Watch Luis Suarez’s stunning goal vs Newcastle to rescue point

Liverpool 1-1 Newcastle Utd
Sunday, 4th November 2012
Premier League
Anfield

Luis Suarez scored a spectacular solo equaliser to rescue a point for Liverpool on another frustrating afternoon at Anfield.

Yohan Cabaye had earlier put Newcastle 1-0 up when against the run of play the Magpies broke and Cabaye fired past Brad Jones in front of the Kop.

But Suarez produced a finish worthy of the best players in the world when he ran onto Jose Enrique’s long ball to control and take the ball past goalkeeper Tim Krul.

The Reds should have gone on to win the game, with Newcastle reduced to ten men following a red card for horror challenge on Suarez by Fabricio Coloccini.

Substitute Jonjo Shelvey missed a hat-trick of chances late on to win it for Liverpool, who go 12th in the Premier League table, with Chelsea away next up next Sunday afternoon.

    Good performance. Obviously, Luis was superb, but I was also really impressed with Raheem. He’s not just a speed merchant, he has genuine skill and his first touch was excellent today. Jose Enrique, what do you do with him? He’s capable of creating and he bombs forward all day, but his defending has just gone to pot. Still not sure we’ve got the right balance in midfield with Nuri at the top of the three and Stevie and Joe in behind. I get the impression all three would prefer to sit deep and it can leave Suarez isolated on occasions. Poor Stevie, the guy is a legend, but there was move down the right in the second half when he failed to beat his man on the outside which showed his legs are going. Can still pick a pass, though. Scandalous to think that Newcastle have a team of mainly established internationals on the back of the £35m we paid for Carroll while we are having to field teenagers (and no longer even have Carroll). It was bound to happen, but I think we have seen a slight regression with Suso, Wisdom and Shelvey. If the club had been managed properly over the last couple of years, only Raheem, who is truly exceptional, would be pushing for a start this early in their careers. On the plus side, though, BR might end up with a nice mix of youngsters with decent experience as squad players, if we can bring in some good senior players in January.

    Great performance by some, others exceptionally poor such as Shelvy! what a useless player to miss point blank. Gerard looked bored and suso nowhere to be seen. Suarez and Raheem were star performers, sahin so far overrated. Its a shame we did not see Asaadi for pace. Shelvy should be shelved unless he shows a dramatic improvement, no hunger or skill. Good performance but another poor result. If they keep the results up it will take a tall order getting any quality in January.

    Agree with opinions below ’bout Shelvey etc. Still thinks he’s really something for us. For some reason he seemed out of focus today, as did Gerrard, who was actually really weak.
    Why can’t we have some normal luck sometimes? Gives me a headache to watch us go on like a train (first fifteen) without scoring. Apart from the situation with Suarez in first half, which I think should have been a penalty, we can’t blame this on the ref this time. Magpies did very good defending, but it’s just so f****** typical that they score in their second or something attack. Looking forward to January, ergo a new scorer; football is about goals. YNWA

    watching that shelvey miss makes me so angry!

    it is frustrating to have some good talents such as Assaidi left on the bench while the likes of downing continue to enjoy playing time. The boy is proven talent and will surely keep defenses busy and reduce the focus on Suarez which is what he needs to perform even better than he currently does.

    Get Suarez an English course, and put him in line on captaincy.

    You know he can do it. For Ajax, for Uruguay. He could be selfish, not-headed, but the captain band will cool him down. He is the central of our attacks, always give 100% and the biggest proven talent that Liverpool is owning. We don’t want him to leave, and there is no better way to keep a man like him than letting him be responsible by giving him the leading role (look at his family)

    Gerrard won’t be here forever, and his position will have to be replaced one day. We have senior players on defensive positions (Reina, Sktel, Agger), but a attacks or midfield player is better to lead the line. And there we only have Suarez

    Long ball for the goal. Does Stevie G have any comment ?
