The Reds got away with it against the Magpies. In this last match on Wednesday night (9pm), Liverpool welcomed Newcastle on the fifth day of the Premier League. Hooked throughout the encounter by Eddie Howe’s players, Jürgen Klopp’s players conceded the first goal. And not just anyone, Alexander Isaacs. The €70 million new recruit was found by Sean Longstaff and managed to cheat Alisson (ranked 38).
Despite 23 to 5 shots at the end of the match, Liverpool struggled to open the scoring and had to wait until the 61st minute to score. Found by Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino found Nick Pope (61). It took until the final moments of the match and extra time to see Liverpool pass Newcastle, with a shot from young Portuguese Fabio Carvalho. On this fifth day, Liverpool are currently fifth, while Newcastle are eleventh.
