The best of the photos as Liverpool overpower Newcastle at Anfield

14 September 2019

Liverpool beat Newcastle 3-1 on Saturday afternoon, maintaining their place at the top of the Premier League with a fifth consecutive win this season.


The Reds were back in action after the tedium of the international break, taking on a Magpies side who have already won at Tottenham this season.

Jurgen Klopp‘s men looked to make it 14 league wins in succession, but faced a rigorous test from their visitors.

Fabinho was a prominent figure throughout, although his physicality could do nothing to prevent Jetro Willems firing the visitors into a shock lead.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made just his second league start in 17 months—and his first at Anfield since injuring his ACL last April—and slotted into midfield alongside Gini Wijnaldum.

Sadio Mane curled home brilliantly to restore parity at Anfield, celebrating with Virgil van Dijk.

Divock Origi‘s afternoon ended prematurely, sadly, with the Belgian replaced by Roberto Firmino, who ended up being the undisputed Man of the Match.

Mane had his second of the game before the half-time whistle arrived, pouncing on an error by Martin Dubravka before tapping into the Kop net.

Firmino superbly teed up Mohamed Salah for Liverpool’s third goal, with the Egyptian calmly finishing with his left.
