Newcastle won their fourth game on the trot today, in what was a close game against Liverpool, and it was that young man Ayoze Perez who scored the winner after 73 minutes – and that was the second weekend running the 21 year-old got the winner, after he did the same thing at Tottenham last week. Newcastle have played three games in six days and won them all against Tottenham, Manchester City and now Liverpool.
Ayoze Perez scores winner
After 73 minutes Newcastle went ahead with a well worked goal.
Moussa Sissoko made a surging run down the left wing – put it through to Dummett who played it back to the Frenchman , who put it into the middle and it bounced off a Liverpool defender to Ayoze Perez, who smashed the ball home and Newcastle were leading 1-0.
But then just three minutes later Remy Cabella should have made it two as he was straight through on goal but the Liverpool goalkeeper turned it away for a corner.
We have to stress this game could have gone either way but it was our youngsters again who made the difference – and Newcastle go to 13 points from 10 games – and that sounds much better.
However, we picked up another injury, and the impressive Gabby Obertan limped off in the first half with what looked like a thigh injury.
We’ll have a report out soon.
