Rafael Benitez: Newcastle United "are still making mistakes"

Klopp admits Liverpool 'miss' Coutinho after Newcastle win

Manchester United are now third, a point behind Liverpool with a game to play.

LIVERPOOL: Karius 7, Alexander-Arnold 7, Robertson 7, Van Dijk 7, Lovren 7, Henderson 7, Can 6, Oxlade-Chamberlain 8, Salah 8, Mane 7, Firmino 7.

But despite their thrilling brand of football, Benitez, who guided the club to a second-placed Premier League finish in 2009, insists the current generation need to land silverware if they are to be considered alongside their illustrious predecessors.

Liverpool climbed back into to second place after a hard-fought, 2-0 win over their former manager, Rafael Benitez and Newcastle.

Newcastle team: Dubravka, Dummett, Lascelles, Lejeune, Yedlin, Merino, Atsu, Diame, Kenedy, Murphy, Gayle.

It was clear early that the onus would be firmly on Liverpool, who needed to remain patient to break down Newcastle's organised 5-4-1 formation, and it looked like Klopp's half-time team talk would be based on how to find a way through their stubborn opponents. Subs: Joselu 6, Hayden 6, Prez n/a.




Liverpool are unbeaten in 21 home league games against Newcastle (W17 D4 L0), since a 0-2 loss in April 1994 thanks to goals from Rob Lee and Andy Cole. Liverpool have the lead and it's Salah once again. Can and Firmino up the ante and tee up Mane to lash into the corner from just inside the area.

The Toon have sat back but they will have to come forward in the second half and that could provide more chances for the hosts, who have been far from their best but have the crucial lead.

The defeat means Everton still only have one league win away from home this season. But that hasn't stopped the Spaniard from proving a hard opponent for Liverpool in recent history; Saturday's victory was their first in six attempts against a Benitez-led team.

Burnley ended an 11-match winless run in the Premier League as Chris Wood's 80th minute header sealed a 2-1 victory over Everton.

Mohamed Salah has scored in each of his last six games for Liverpool in all competitions - the last player to do so in more was Daniel Sturridge in February 2014 (8).
