Liverpool Player Ratings for a dominating win over Newcastle United

Liverpool Player Ratings Newcastle, Six Sports

Here we have with us the Liverpool Player Ratings during their dashing win against Newcastle United. The Reds took down the Magpies 3-1 at Anfield during their Premier League clash on Friday.

A brutally dominating performance took Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool back to 2nd place in the table, chasing Manchester City with a one-point difference.

The game had Newcastle open the scoring early in the game. Mistakes on both ends of the pitch by Thiago enabled and lined a beautiful goal for Jonjo Shelvey. However, that enjoyment was short-lived as Liverpool started their attacking dominance. A rather controversial goal by Diogo Jota was followed by a tap-in by Mohamed Salah to give the Reds a lead before halftime.

In the second half, the Merseyside outfits kept on pushing for a third but were unable to produce the desired outcome. The Magpies caught the opposition off guard on a few occasions but lacked the end product. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s late rocket broke the second-half deadlock, concluding the game 3-1.
