Darwin Nunez came off the bench to nab a 2-1 win at Newcastle
And that was all down to substitute Darwin Nunez. He grabbed the equaliser four minutes after being unleashed as a substitute and then grabbing a stunning 93rd minute winner.
That winless run for Newcastle against their chief tormentors is now 14 games, going back to 2015.
But you have to give enormous credit to Liverpool who showed real guts just when everything seemed to be going against them.
Initially, it seemed as though this game would be remembered for Liverpool’s dodgy defence.
Alexander-Arnold struggled from the very start against the pace and direction of fellow scouser Gordon.
Just a minute after being cautioned by ref John Brooks for throwing the ball away, Alexander-Arnold elbowed Gordon off the ball and escaped with a lecture from the official.
And so that incident sparked the first exchange between Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Newcastle no 2 Jason Tindall.
Eddie Howe’s right-hand man has clearly been affected by the new Premier League rules which only allow one person in the technical area
