Salah goal not enough as late Newcastle equaliser denies Liverpool crucial win

Published

Mohamed Salah scored an early goal for Liverpool on Saturday but it was not enough for the Reds who were held to a 1-1 draw by Newcastle United.

Salah’s third-minute opener put Liverpool on their way to picking up a crucial victory in the Premier League clash at Anfield.

But a 95th-minute dramatic leveller by Newcastle substitute Joe Willock secured a point for the visitors and dented Liverpool’s hopes of a Champions League place.

Callum Wilson had earlier scored a last-minute equaliser but it was ruled out for handball.

The draw leaves the Jurgen Kloop side on sixth in the table, with West Ham and Chelsea – both a point ahead of their sixth-placed side – meeting later on Saturday.

Newcastle are 15th and have garnered 36 points, with six games remaining.
