Jurgen Klopp’s men equalised in the 61st minute when Roberto Firmino found the back of the net with a controlled finish.

The contest ended with the Reds earning a wonderful 2-1 victory at Anfield.

Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player performed during the match against the Magpies.


GK: Alisson Becker – 6.5/10

The Brazilian keeper made one good save in the game but couldn’t do much about Alexander Isak’s finish in the first half.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6.5/10


The English full-back played some decent crosses during the game but was guilty of throwing away possession a few times during his time on the field.

CB: Joe Gomez – 7/10


Gomez dealt with mostly everything that came his way and was good on the ball as well.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 6.5/10

Van Dijk was strong at the back and organised his backline well after conceding the opener in the 38th minute.


LB: Andrew Robertson – 6/10

Robertson was way below his usual standards today. He was still adventurous with his runs and got himself into some promising areas in the final third.

CM: Harvey Elliott – 8/10

The talented youngster was always willing to get on the ball and set up a few decent plays for others around him.

CM: Fabinho – 6/10

The Brazilian midfield ace gave away too many cheap fouls and didn’t have his shooting boots on from long range.

CM: Jordan Henderson – 6/10

The Liverpool captain slowed the tempo of the game at times. He ran out of gas and got replaced in the second half.

RW: Mohamed Salah – 7/10

Salah was always willing to run in behind the opponent’s backline but lacked the cutting edge in front of the Newcastle goal.

ST: Roberto Firmino – 7.5/10

He had a quiet game in the first half but popped up the all-important equaliser after the hour mark with a great finish.

LW: Luis Diaz – 7/10

Diaz caused all kinds of problems for Kieran Trippier but there was no goal for him today.


CM: Fabio Carvalho – 7.5/10

He was Klopp’s super sub off the bench as he went on to score the winning goal in injure-time

RB: James Milner – 6/10

Milner struggled to retain possession of the ball down the right flank.

LB: Kostas Tsimikas – 6/10

Tsimikas showed some signs of promise but lacked quality in the final third.
