Newcastle 0-1 Liverpool
Premier League (34), St James’ Park
April 30, 2022
Goals: Keita 19′
The Reds faced a big test at St James’ Park, with the match coming only two-and-a-half days after the Champions League win over Villarreal.
A much-changed Liverpool side took the lead thanks to Keita’s brilliantly-taken goal, on an impressive afternoon for the Guinean.
It made for another result to savour and Liverpool fans were quick to hail Keita’s starring role on social media.
The Guinean earned praise for a superb showing, as did a few others…
That felt massive. A lot of changes, early kick off, vs the in form team and made it look fairly easy. Should have put the game to bed earlier but will take that!
– Keita motm, was everywhere. everyone who came in today played really well too

Keita MOTM by a mile, he was unbelievable, deserves a new contract ASAP

James Milner was very good & got awarded MOTM. But for me, Naby Keita was the real MOTM. Tremendous performance by him today. #LFC

Naby Keita and Joe Gomez, take a bow. Superb performance boys.
Lovely to see Naby Keita get a winner in a big game in a title run-in. Hopefully, more credit will be given in the following days.
Keep going REDS!

Gomez was excellent. Naby was excellent. Either could be given MOTM. The two best players on the pitch.

Naby Keita with a brilliant performance, my MoTM. Well in lads, said before the game 3 points is all that mattered. We got 3 points, on to the next one!

That’s huge for Naby. Staying fit, putting in some superb performances lately and now the match winner. Everything just coming to fruition.

Huge 3pts. Always nervy in situations like those last 10mins & the Reds could have made their lives a lot easier if the front three was a little more ruthless today.
Keita & Gomez were exceptional throughout, with Matip & Virgil also very, solid & disciplined with their line. pic.twitter.com/lxJiwKWdLI

Exactly the sort of solid yet unspectacular performance that was needed in a crucial and congested week. Box ticked at Newcastle through hard work. Keita and Milner energy fuelled the win, Gomez reminding plenty of folks what he has to offer. #LFCdigest

Sublime from Naby , relentless from Milner and commanding from Hendo. One of the best midfield performances again from the 3 of them. The rest of the team were absolute magnificent too. #Dreamtillwecantdreamnomore #LFC ?

Some also look to Man City with the pressure now on Pep’s side…
Over to you City…

Massive win that one. Pressure squarely back on City this evening at Elland Road.
