Divock Origi late header helped Liverpool secure a 3-2 victory over Newcastle during their Premier League clash at St James’ Park as they edge closer to the league title.
Van dijk headed Liverpool in front just 13 minutes into the game. Alexander-Arnold whipped the ball into the box with pace from the corner.
Atsu pulled the home team back on level terms 7 minutes later. Manquillo was afforded space and time down the right flank and he digs out a threatening cross. Ritchie connects, but scuffs his drive at goal.
Rondon was the next to shoot, only to be denied by Alexander-Arnold on the line – perhaps with an arm. The referee waves play on and Atsu takes on the next strike, firing his effort into the back of the net.
But their joy didnt last as Mo Salah slotted home to give the Liverpool the lead back 28 minutes on. Alexander-Arnold with the delivery again into the middle from the right flank.
Just 9 minutes into second half the home team equalized for the second time in the game.
4 minutes to stoppage time, Origi strikes to give the Reds the lead for the third time in the game.
Shaqiri with a delivery into the box and Origi rises with Lascelles, guiding the ball over Dubravka into the net. It may have deflected off the Newcastle defender last, but the Belgian and his team-mates will not care.
Liverpool now two point away from City and the league title will be hoping the Pep side slip.
