Liverpool 0-1 Newcastle LIVE! Shelvey goal – Premier League match stream, latest score and goal updates today

With Premier League fixtures falling victim to Covid outbreaks across the country, it is a relief that tonight’s match between Liverpool and Newcastle will go ahead.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in terrific form and are hoping to beat the struggling Magpies in order to close the gap to leaders Manchester City to a single point heading into Christmas.

City produced a statement performance on Tuesday night when thumping Leeds 7-0 and Liverpool will likely have designs on a similar outcome against Eddie Howe’s side, who saw the optimism of their first win of the season, against Burnley, quickly evaporate as they were hammered 4-0 by Leicester at the weekend.

The Toon are currently three points adrift of safety and would appear to be in damage limitation mode before moving for reinforcements when the transfer window opens in a fortnight’s time.

Live updates


15 mins: Matt Ritchie is the man sent on with the unenviable task of marking Mo Salah for the evening.


12 mins: Ah, this is a sickener for Newcastle. Jamal Lewis makes a run on the overlap but pulls up clutching his hamstring and immediately signals to the bench that his evening is done.


10 mins: Liverpool are straight back on the offensive and rattling the woodwork through Mane, although the flag is subsequently raised and the replay confirms he was a good couple of yards offside.


GOAL! Liverpool 0-1 Newcastle | Jonjo Shelvey 7′

It’s poor from Thiago, who has time on the edge of his own box but doesn’t realise it and shovels a rushed clearance straight to Shelvey but from there it’s just brilliant.

The former Liverpool man whips a strike into the far corner and Alisson can get nowhere near it.


6 mins: Almost magic. Wonderful from Mo Salah, who backheels into the path of Jota and the Portuguese spins and shoots but is denied at the near-post by Dubravka.


5 mins: Well, as you’d expect, Liverpool have started on the front foot and it’s already taken a decent bit of defending from Manquillo to prevent Jota squirming his way to the byline. Could be a long night for the visitors.



We are up and running at Anfield…


Ten minutes to go…

Enjoy this one, because who knows how much more football we’re going to get over the next few weeks.


Three changes for Toon

Newcastle, meanwhile, have sprung a bit of a surprise in dropping striker Callum Wilson to the bench.

Joe Willock and Miguel Almiron are also replaced, with Ryan Fraser, Jacob Murphy and Isaac Hayden the trio to come in.

You have to presume the Wilson decision is to do with game time, given his injury record.


Firmino back in contention…

Better news for Liverpool is that Roberto Firmino is back in the matchday squad, albeit only on the bench for now.

Liverpool have coped fine without him thanks to the form of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota, but with the first two due to head off to the AFCON shortly, the Brazilian’s return is timely.
