Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: Mane on Target as Liverpool Come From Behind to Win
Premier League leaders Liverpool shrugged off an early scare to sweep past Newcastle and maintain their 100% start to the season with another dominant attacking display.
Newcastle took a shock early lead through Jetro Willems’ powerful strike (7) but Liverpool, who enjoyed 80 per cent possession in the first half, turned things around before half-time with Mane (28, 40) taking his tally for goals in the Premier league this season to four.
Salah eventually finished Newcastle off 18 minutes from time, justifiably going it alone after criticism for apparent greediness at Burnley, as the Reds became the first Premier League team to win 14 games in a row while scoring more than one goal in each match.
There was no coming back for Steve Bruce’s Newcastle as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool strolled to their fifth straight win this term to move five points clear of second-placed Manchester City, who visit promoted Norwich City later on Saturday.
