Newcastle United 2-0 Liverpool

2-0 for Newcastle can be considered a surprising result considering the recent performance of the two teams.

Liverpool, on the contrary, is flying high with consecutive positive results since coach Jurgen Klopp sat on the hot seat.

However, it seems that overconfidence has harmed Liverpool.

Klopp took away Sturrige in the first hour of play, causing him to not have time to catch up when replacing Firmino and not playing as effectively as expected.

Without the striker duo in high form, Liverpool became dull in attack, when Benteke was isolated, Firmino faded, different from when he shone in the 4-1 defeat of Man City on November 21.

Liverpool could not maintain the explosive efficiency like when they handled Chelsea and Man City, but Newcastle showed that they really have the will and desire to get out of the quagmire.

Right-back Paul Dummett struggled when facing Liverpool’s dynamic wing star Jordon Ibe, but was able to block this trigger.

Newcastle fans were so happy they were choking with their home team’s victory.

After Liverpool put Sturridge on the field, coach McClaren also made reasonable adjustments by letting his players fall deep into defense and wait for opportunities from speedy counterattacks with the two core players Sissoko and Wijnaldum.

With this 2-0 result, Newcastle jumped over Sunderland to 18th place with 13 points.
