RECAP | Liverpool 1-1 Newcastle United: Reds rue wasted chances after Willock’s late leveller

Join SAM JONES for live coverage of Liverpool’s Premier league clash with Newcastle United at Anfield.

After a run of home defeats, Liverpool were hoping to make it two from two in the Premier League as Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United side visited Anfield.

The Magpies have had another season of fighting relegation, but are in good form right now and had lost only once in their seven games leading up to this one.

Similarly, it’s six weeks since the Reds lost a league game, though the late sucker punch at Elland Road last time out was tough to take.


Diego Llorente’s 87th-minute header cancelled out Sadio Mané’s first-half opener, in what proved to be a setback in Liverpool’s push for a top-four finish.

And it was déjà vu here as Joe Willock found an injury time leveller to punish the profligate Liverpool players who had wasted so many good opportunities throughout the game.
