Liverpool beat Newcastle 2-0
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are second in the Premier League on Saturday night after a 2-0 win over Newcastle.
The Magpies, who remain in relegation trouble, never looked capable of being Liverpool at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah fired Liverpool ahead after an assist from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Sadio Mane doubled the advantage in the second half after combining with Roberto Firmino.
Jamaal Lascelles vs Mohamed Salah
The the final minutes of the match at Anfield, Newcastle could have conceded a third.
Magpies centre-half and captain Jamaal Lascelles tripped Mohamed Salah.
Many Liverpool fans were calling for a penalty, although the trip was outside the box.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane vs Mo Salah
Everyone knows that Man City are going to be crowned Premier League champions this season.
But one of the few remaining prizes in the league is who will be the top goalscorer.
After Saturday’s round of matches, Salah is level with Tottenham’s Harry Kane on 24 goals.
Kane failed to score as Spurs beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Wembley.
But is there a conspiracy in favour of Kane in the goalscoring race?
Some Liverpool fans took to social media after the Newcastle game to complain about just that.
The argument was made that by allowing Jamaal Lascelles to get away with his penalty, Salah was ‘denied’ another goal.
Do you have to wear a Spurs shirt to win a penalty at Anfield?
