Liverpool came into the match knowing fully well that a slip up will cost them the chance of winning the English Premier League title.

The reds took the lead in the 13th minute with Van Dijk registering his name on the score sheet, but Christian Atsu levelled the scoreline in the 20th minute to make 1-1.

Mohamed Salah put Liverpool back on top in the 28th minute to end the first half 1-2 in favour of the visitors.

Solomon Rondon goal in the 54th minute of the second half brought Newcastle back into the game.
