Salah Scores Again - Liverpool v Newcastle (3/3/18)

Salah Scores Again - Liverpool v Newcastle (3/3/18)

Following today's clash between Liverpool and Newcastle United, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Liverpool hosted Newcastle United at Anfield on Saturday March 3, with the hosts taking a pretty comfortable two nil victory.

Mohamed Salah found the net once again this year five minutes before the half time break and Sadio Mane added a second ten minutes after the restart to secure all three points on the day.



Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Milner 79), Henderson, Can, Salah, Firmino (Matip 88), Mane (Lallana 74).


Gomez, Moreno, Mignolet, Solanke.


Dubravka, Lejeune, Lascelles, Dummett, Yedlin, Diame, Merino (Hayden 73), Kenedy, Atsu, Murphy (Perez 84), Gayle (Joselu 66).


Clark, Ritchie, Manquillo, Darlow.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Graham Scott blew the final whistle, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp explained.

'I very often forget the result during the game so even though we were 2-0 up I did feel we had to control the game better. But then when you step out on the pitch, you realise the wind, so it was difficult to do the right thing in the right moment. We scored two wonderful goals and for sure should have had a penalty but didn't. They defended really well and are a good team with quality. We lost a few balls we don't usually lose and Roberto Firmino didn't have much support. It caused a few problems but not too many.'

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez in his comparative interview explained.

'We were playing against a dangerous team. We know they have the pace up front. We managed to 40 minutes then it was a mistake. We had to go for it in the second half and were then more open. You have to keep the balance to be stronger in the defence and create chances in attack. We are learning but we are still making mistakes against teams. We are improving but this team has to get points. I am pleased with the fans. The Liverpool fans were really good for me.'
